I saw the doctor for problems with sleep and breathing. I did not receive a thorough exam. I did not receive good follow up after the exam. I received inconsistent messaging from the staff. During the exam, the doctor seemed like he was very hesitant to exam me. He treated me he didn't want to touch me and wanted to be as far from as possible. When the doctor heard my concerns his answers didn't seem very well thought out.
