Patient Comments (1)
in Denver, CO |
He did not help my headaches/migraines at all and had a new diagnosis every time I saw him, not remembering or writing down info from prior appts so time was wasted. Most of the time was at least 45 min late, sometimes to an hour an a half and when I tried to reschedule was told it would be counted as a missed visit. Botox was THOUSANDS more than other providers, to the point I had to pay several hundred out of pocket because they charged too much and insurance refused to pay the high price.
