This was my second appointment with Dr Gomez. I had seen him a year ago for sleep apnea. When I went in there he wanted to know if I had stop smoking I said no and please do not lecture me as I was billed for the lecture the last time. He said oh but you can spend the money on cigarettes. What are you here for? I said I did not know he had scheduled me an appointment. He closed my file said follow me I am not wasting my time with you and escorted me out of his office.
