    Was referred to him by a friend. Made us wait over an hour and a half to very rudely tell us our son had ear wax and he didn't know "how anyone could have seen an ear infection" and told us our son was fine and didn't need tubes. He has had 2 more ear infections in the month since we've been there and now he has a third. He was very quick to dismiss us. We saw him for less than 15 minutes.
