in Kansas City, MO |
I felt very uncomfortable in his office. The questions I was being asked were out of line. I would think very long and hard about going back to see this doctor.
This reviewer must be an idiot. I retired from my practice on 12/31/2000. I have never seen a patient since then. This reviewer's review dates 4/16/2016, that is more than 15 years after I retired.
