Patient Comments (2)

one of the most horrible experiences i've EVER had with a doctor. diagnosis wasn't explained properly & when i asked a question he acted annoyed & blurted out the same explanation. he needs major work on his social skills... truly uncaring, brusque, condescending & totally filled w/himself. staff...more
