Patient Comments (1)
in Philadelphia |
Dr. M. shamefully badmouthed Penn Presby doctors and suggested the 2004 highly positive sjogrens syndrome pathology report on file was wrong because biopsy was done at Penn and "she knows who that is over there". She said they overdiagnose it there so it must be wrong and then chose not to prescribe anything which is her choice but when someone goes to a rheum specialist they usually come away with something or adequate advice re next steps. I got nothing but they billed insurance/copay.
