Horrible horrible experience. He did not ask for my consent nor did he tell me what he was doing or why when he put his hands on me. He wrenched my neck which caused excruciating pain and made me cry. He did not review any of the documents I provided with data on my sleep. He did not even review the paperwork his staff insisted I complete. He berated me, talked down to me, and told me my insomnia is because of depression. (It is not.) I was told I had to have a home sleep study before I saw him,

By 75 years of close contact with the medical community, starting with all early years growing up with my 30 year Veteran Hospital Administrator Father, I am a well qualified "outside observer" when judging medical action.

I saw him twice the first time he has students in the office trying to get information from me. He got all the information screwed up getting it from and 4 other students. The second time he just did not listen to me. He told me that all he sees is an overweight person who needs a sleep study. My best friend went with me he asked me if I snored I told him that my HUSBABD says I do. He then look at my BFF and asked her if I snore when we are sleeping, when he did that I knew he did not listen.
