Patient Comments (1)

I would never recommend this doctor to anyone. We spent two hours with him and all he didn't was put my daughter down emotionally. My daughter was in tears when we left because he was so mean to her. We were there for a kidney issue and he was taking about everything else that was wrong with her.
