Patient Comments (1)
in Canton, ohio |
He cancels multiple appointments or is usually running over an hour or more late. His office always claims that he got called in to surgery but after the first couple of years of hearing that excuse multiple times, I asked the office staff the real reason. They just laughed and said that surgery was the reason they were always told to say. He has little bedside manner and obviously does not respect his patient's time. There are better doctors out there and you'd do well to find them.
