Patient Comments (1)
in Memphis, TN |
Worst doctor. Deplorable health/mannerism. Asked if I smoked. Had nurse agree and said, We like it when you smoke, It pays our bills. Got smoke speech every visit for a year. Last visit he put up xray and said, You're all clear. See you in 6 months. Wrote patient feels better, which I did not say nor felt. Saw another dr week later. Sinuses still as infected after countless prescriptions of antibiotics, one after the other for a year. This 'uack should be reported to the Medical Board.
