Great experience!
in Miami, FL |
He was in and out in about 5 minutes, he didn't even listen to me. I have been having ear and throat problems for 3 months and he didn't even look in my ears. He threw a scope down my throat and said everything was fine and left the room! He couldn't answer any of my questions, he was the WORSE doctor I have ever seen and I do not recommend him, I had no idea as I was referred to him through my primary physician. TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE!
Miami, FL |
He is very pricey,getting an appointment is very challenging and the waiting time is long.
Miami, FL |

in New York, NY |
Short Wait Appears very knowledgeable and explained and illustrated probable cause.
