Patient Comments (3)
in Tehachapi, CA |
The Dr. was okay, he seemed more interested in how my child was related to me than trying to figure out what was wrong with my child. We left the office with a prescription in hand, but low and behold when we arrived at the pharmacy, after an hour drive home from his office, we waited an hour for a prescription we couldn't fill. Dr. neglected to put a dose or amount on prescription. Called the office 3 times and spoke to very incompetent staff. Find another Dr. if you can, this office sucks!!!!!

This was the rudest, meanest man I have ever met in my life. He was being so judgmental, I left out of there crying.

Worst bedside manner.Take a lawyer with you to ensure you're taken care of. Do not go to Mercy hospital /Memorial hospital or wherever this person is working as an onsite dr to fill. Under his care, he did not take care of me after surgery. Never have a procedure at Mercy!No patient should suffer in a hospital and there is no social rep to ensure someone will be able to take care of you at home. He's judgemental which effects your treatment.
