I have been to many doctors in my 49 years as I suffer from not only heart issues but terrible anxiety and OCD. Of all the doctors I have never met a Doctor so arrogant, unprofessional , The bedside manner of Adolf Hitler. If you want to treated like garbage by a doctor then go see him. there is many good professional caring health professionals in the area, please learn from my mistake and don’t bother with this one,I wish I could leave negative stars I am so appalled at how he treats patients.
