Honestly the least considerate doctor I have ever had to work with. He controls whether or not I can get my medicine each month, which I need, and he knows that being as he prescribed it. Multiple times I have been unable to reach him for days at a time when it was time to get a refill, or he did not authorize refills when he was supposed to. He never knows anything about me as a patient, it is as if I am new every time I walk in, and I have been there probably 25 times. He is sorry.
