Patient Comments (2)
in Tacoma, WA |
He's generally good & competent but was making me see him more than required to renew my prescription. I didn't like that attitude when doctors force you to see them to keep their business running and I take my health very seriously. I am a chronic migraine patient and there's no real cure for it and he wouldn't renew my prescription unless. His argument was that he needs to examine me again for headaches before he can renew them but he's not a headache specialist and he didn't have any solution
