Patient Comments (1)
in St Louis, MO |
I had him perform a sleep study on me to find out why I'm having night terrors. Unfortunately, I did not have an episode during the study so he wasn't able to find anything wrong. The medicines aren't working. Every time I call his office to get help, I always have to leave a voicemail and then no one ever returns my calls! I have to call several times, each time more demanding than the last just to get help weeks later. Never in my life have I ever had a doctor do this!
