Patient Comments (1)
Always wants to give me a Pap smear, even though I come in for a cold. Would never have him be my Gyno, has given me wrong prescriptions, totally incompetent. His staff is worse, always wait on hold even though I'm the only one on the line. When I go in for my appointment they sit behind the glass window gossiping about patients.....
