This Doctor was very rude, unprofessional, and incompetent. I followed up with another, and found the issue. Finally I am being treated for my condition! I would never recommend this Doctor, nor would I allow him to treat (or LACK OF treat, in my case) anyone I know. Good Riddence!

It was a horrible experience! Filthy office, terrible nurse, lovely receptionist. He was very rude and shuffled me out without even checking my eyes! Please, do not go to this Doctor.
