in Georgetown, KY
HE SEEMED LIKE A VERY NICE MAN. HE WAS VERY PROFESSIONAL AND TOOK HIS TIME TO LISTEN TO ME. HE DID A THOROUGH EXAM AND FOUND THINGS THAT THE OTHER DR. MISSED. HE WAS FRIENDLY AND DEFINITELY A PEOPLE PERSON. HE IS WITHOUT A DOUBT MY KIND OF DOCTOR.

Dr. Conklin is a terrible communicator. He talks over the patient's head and then gets impatient when questions are asked. He is arrogant and I had issues with him, including a significant mistake on his part.
