Was convinced I had hepatitis, despite a negative test result, because I am tattooed. Ran the panel 3 more times, all negative, but refused to look at anything else. Used the phrase "your pain is not my problem".

Never. Won't return calls after messages left and after he had done a procedure on me. Finally on the third attempt I reached one of his employees. She was rude and reluctantly took my message. She stated that she would give the info to the doctor, that was over a week ago and no one has contacted me.
