Heather in Morristown, TN – Feb 22, 2017
This guy, in my opinion, should not be allowed to be a Cardiologist. My spouse had heart disease, clogged heart arteries, and this jerk kept putting stents in to pay for his vacation, and in my opinion, knew this was a temporary fix. After many stents, he finally admitted my spouse needed bypass surgery. He walked in after our last stent and in a unemotional way said he was done with us. This piece of garbage didn't even refer us elsewhere, he just walked out. I hate this doctor.
