Crissy Owsley – Dec 24, 2020
Traveled many hours to get there. He doesn’t even make eye contact. Spent less than 5 minutes in my room. He won’t look at other testing relies solely on his ultrasound only. Many doctors have confirmed my diagnosis but he discredited them all and wouldn’t look at my reports or imaging brought from home. Highly dissatisfied!!!
