Patient Comments (1)
New York, NY |
This is the crappiest doctor that I have seen. Your initial visit starts general test which then lead to 'recommended test' based on his readings. When you come back to follow up on these 2nd test he mentions nothing of 3/4 of the things he's ordered, so something urgent becomes nothing. And if you need a referral to a good specialist, fat chance. No one knows who he is and referrals are never submitted. He also challenges the results of specialist. An odd, awkward and an uncomfortable doctor
