Patient Comments (1)
in Knoxville, TN |
Horrible experience with him and his staff! He treated my 91 year old mother for macular... If I wasn't there he wouldn't even speak to her, like she didn't matter and didn't deserve respect. Would walk in, out the shot in her eye and just leave. He wasn't even gentle with her. On several occasions she would be there for 3 hours waiting.... And the staff would disregard her. They were rude when I would call to get updates on her condition....worst experience with any Dr office EVER!
