    Patient Comments (1)
    in Houston |
    Worst doctor I have ever experienced. Gave me wrong diagnosis, wasn't even bothered to make me understand the problem or get it cured, and always told me there was no solution to my problem. I dragged my severe leg pain for 1 year thinking there was no solution. Finally, got a reference for other doctor who diagnosed my problem and got it cured in 1 month. I definitely do not recommend this doctor.
