While he may know his ailments, his bedside manner is very off putting. Seemed completely disinterested in my history and what I was hoping for in terms of treatment approach. He treats the aliment, not the patient. Accurately and quickly diagnosed one condition but simply threw $300 prescriptions at my other concerns that do not address the root cause.
