Shortly into my first appointment he began saying humiliating things. He condemned 2 diagnoses that I have had for over 10 years, for which I regularly see highly-skilled specialists. He contradicted other doctors' recommendations for my health issues, such as a gluten-free diet. When questioning me about my family environment, he interrupted me with condescending remarks. At my 2nd appt. he called me a liar. Such condescension is appalling, arrogant and prejudicial.

Thought that hernia surgery would be real rough on me. I heard horror stories about people struggling to get back to work within a month. The only reason I know Josh did something is that the the hernia is no longer there and there was some supper glue on my belly button that slowly came off! He operated on Thursday and I was back to work on Monday (could have gone back to work on Friday). I had more problems with the anesthesia than the surgery. I tend to be a hypochondriac.
