Miami, FL |
Very thankful to have knowledgeable people looking out over my recovery caring and clean office and super nice even though I called like 20 times they always had patience when explaining to me what was going on thank you
in PARK LAKE |
This man should not be practicing medice. I was a compensation case and was sent to him against my will. He is the worse man I have ever seen practice medicine. He put me on light duty when I was in sever pain. I had no choice but to leave my position with my employee and return to my home town. On my last visit when notified him of my intentions. He slammed the chart shut and walk out of the exam room. He is only there to send people back to work even if they are not phyically abe to.He sux.
