Do not make the mistake of thinking this doctor with listen to you or bother reading your scans/charts/history himself. If he is reading the scans he ordered he should stop. Lied to my PCP that I agreed to something I did NOT agree to, nor did he ever discuss it with me. He and the radiologist at Olean Open MRI missed my ondontoid process being fused, retroflexed into my brain stem, and with a pannus formation. Did not care that I choke on food which my GI physician has narrowed to a Neuro issue

Don't walk. Run from this incompetent doctor. Diagnosed my husband with stroke when he had a massive brain tumor. If he can't read an MRI at this point idk what to say.
