Patient Comments (1)
in Denver, North Carolina |
Unprofessional, judgemental, has a god complex, not a good listener by any standards, accuses patients of not following contract by false or absolute incorrect information fabricated by him. Does not have the interest of the patient at all.
I must respectfully disagree with the comments presented here. In over 20 years of practice I listen to my patients and I am not unprofessional or judgmental. Physicians must balance the use of pain meds with state/federal guidelines. It is important that patients follow the rules and regulations that are assoc w/ the prescription of strong pain meds. I am very much interested in my patients but also have obligations to ensure the meds I am prescribing taken safely & appropriate manner.
