Patient Comments (1)
Winfield, IL |
answers the questions you think to ask but doesn't necessarily address the questions you don't know to ask. Doesn't tell you enough about implications of meds he's prescribing. Changes his mind about which procedures ought to be done, without seeming to give it much consideration. Maybe he's just way smarter than I am.
