Patient Comments (2)
Absolutely the worst physician I have ever seen. I am a provider in Toledo and I cannot believe they allow this idiot to practice. Wanted to start Alzheimer's medications with severe side effects on my middle aged family member without appropriate diagnostic testing to rule out other causes of transient memory issues. Never accept a diagnosis from this man. Needless to say, we will not be back and neither should you.

My son's appointment time was 1 pm. At 1:30 the physician came strolling through the waiting room with a bag of chips. At 1:35 we were called back. At 2 pm we were seen. He did remember why we were there although we had seen him just a little over a week before. Said everything looked good, however the condition we were seeing him for has been worsening over the last 3 months. Researching now on my own and canceled all remaining follow ups. Search outside of Defiance without a doubt.
