He did not address my concerns and did not tell me I had a deviated septum that was shown on my MRI brain scan results that he ordered and reviewed and called with the results or that I had sinusitis which was also shown on the scan results. I saw him for migraines; sinus issues can cause migraines. I found out the full results of my MRI and all these things when my results were faxed to my primary doctor who then called to tell me. I would not recommend this doctor.
