I did not see him in his office. I was admitted to the ER and he was put on my case. I have a rare blood disorder and was being treated at another hospital for that disorder. He argued with me numerous times about why he was the better doctor to take care of me. He also tried ordering tests that I already had done or didn't need! I would definitely not recommend him to anyone!
