Newark, NJ |
He never answers the phone. We live in Ga and sometimes have emergencies where we need him and he is never available.
in Opelika, Al. |
He was more intrestested in leaving than he was in answering the questions I had about my medication. That is after I recommend the seizure medication I had researched. Very rood and disrespectful!
Auburn, AL |
Very rude and disrespectful, incompetent staff, doesn't seem to care about his patients, constantly interrupting you when you talk. Overall the worst doctor I have ever seen
