Patient Comments (1)
Buffalo, NY |
Don't recommend him at all. You won't be safe and feel confident about your treatment in his hands. Forgot several times to prescribe the right medication and I had to go to pharmacy and hospital twice! And had to be happend after another appointment ($)! Does not call back and won't feel responsible! Don't go there.
