Patient Comments (2)
We found him difficult to talk to - abrupt and not always listening, interrupts. He did take time with us though and hopefully has given a good treatment plan.
CHATTANOOGA, TN |
I would never reccommend the Dr. to anyone. The front desk staff are rude and I have been there three times. The first time I waited for over 2hrs, second time waited over an hour and had reschedule, and the third time waited for 1.5hrs. The waiting room was not clean nor was the equipment sterile. I watch him use tools to look into my ears and put them right back into the drawer. He constantly rubs his face and nose while writing notes in my file. Same clothes all three visits.
