I was extremely disappointed in the overall quality of his care. His support staff was additionally quite rude when I asked follow up questions as if I were bothering them with my trivialities. The final straw was when they refused to see me due to a billing error on their end showing a past due balance of 37 dollars. That number is entirely accurate. When I explained the error was a mistake on their part they seemed annoyed by the information. After that I deleted their contact information.
