Patient Comments (2)
in Union, KY |
Did not like him. He never examined ME, only looked at my X-rays. Never even a hand shake. He was a hologram. I could have done an e-visit with him and it wouldn't have made a difference. I didn't get relief and had to push him to go to the next step. I would never refer anyone to him. I'd go to an unknown board certified doctor before I would ever return to him.
