in Mandeville, LA |
He was rude to me. Lied to me about stem cell therapy options (I had done extensive research before going to my appointment about the variety of options and research studies being done at Ocshner Hospital at that time using stem cell therapy.) He made a nasty, cutting remark to the student, about me as I was walking away. I was disgusted and stunned.
