Chicago, IL |
I do not recommend Dr Prinz , since the first appointment he showed not interest to treat me cause I had a surgery with another Doctor and he said why don't you go back with "your doctor who performed the surgery" I said his office its far and I did not like his treatment.. He was upset . He seamed like he was doing me a favor, my daughter was with me and she saw the rudnes from this Doctor. He never answer my questions. He said sorry I have no idea what is going on with your left arm. NOT GOOD!
