Went to the office for consultation. Doctor spend 2 min with my son and rush us out. I did pay for the consultation out of pocket as It was requested. Received unexpected bill from his office for treatment that he did not perform. Office staff very unprofessional. Stay away from this business..

He did not even look at my son's chart, barely took a look at him, and we spent maybe 5 minutes with him before he rushed off. Rude, abrupt, and poor attitude.
