    My child was a patient of his and he always treated her poorly. When I tried to make her next appointment he refused to see her because I had taken her to Columbus to see specialist for her other conditions. Mind you, she had been transferred from a local hospital to nationwide children's so it's not like I even had a choice! He has horrible bed side manner and always made my child cry!

    I tried to switch my 14 month old son to dr. Patel today due to his current doctor getting ready to retire I was asked what insurance my baby had I replied Coventry care which is listed as accepted insurance at that comment the man very rudely loudly snapped that they don't take the medical card I will warm everyone I know in any tax bracket away from these mean people

    Why Does Experience Matter?
