My wife had to wait two months for her initial visit. After the visit, he told my wife that she did not have the problem she came to him for. She asked him to review all of her charts , and records, and he said he did not have to. She asked him nicely to do that, and he said no. She then asked, and wanted to , and did talk with him on the phone, after which we received a letter dismissing us as a patient, as we questioned his diagnosis, and did not even plan any sort of treatment.
