To be honest, I would not give this MD any stars if that was an option! Terrible experience with this MD in Garfield hospital. He barely looked at his patient in Garfield Medical Center. The only questions he asked about the patient were: "Why is she sleeping so much? Who is her DPOA agent? Do you have a place to send her?" He's the MD! What concern or care did he exhibit for his patient? He insisted on inserting a gastric feeding tube against the DPOA instructions of the patient and yelled at the DPOA agents: "you are going to make her starve to death?"
