Horrible staff. He didn't address my concerns

Didn't seem to understand that I was in pain as a result of bulging disc even after an MRI and multiple office visits. It didn't seem like I was important enough for him to worry about. I was totally dumbfounded and now am looking for someone who is competent.

A real looser. What can you expect from a plumber?

Egotistical, no empathy, judgemental, argues, doesn't listen, doesn't preform a proper assessment. Wouldn't recommend him to my worst enemy. No one deserves to be treated with such disrespect
