Awful doctor. Asks no questions and just orders tests. Each time he would start walking away while I was asking him questions. The gallbladder and stomach digestions problems are complicated and he was totally uncurious. No questions about diet or the pain I was in. I learned nothing about my condition, it worsened and I made some choices that I can't take back. I would not let anyone or any family member near this docter. He's just awful.
