Biddeford, ME |
Very incompetent. See at your own risk
in Biddeford, ME |
Absolutely no bedside manner. Borderline rude. Seemed rushed and impatient when asking about my medical problem. Very rough in his exam style. Actually hurt me and said later during the exam that he was sorry. Rushed me out of the exam room, so he could get to his next patient. Thankfully, he is not my regular doctor. She was unavailable. He said he was calling in a much needed prescription for pain. I had to call the office a day later, to remind him. A very unpleasant experience.
