Patient Comments (2)
Tallahassee, FL |
He is one of the worst drs I ever seen. He was so rude to my Mom and Dad. Was very rough in examining my Mom and raised his voice every time we had a question. If we tried to explain the symptoms he acted like we were crazy. I felt like my Mom was humiliated and he told us when left there is no hope no cure raising his voice. I would not take my dog to him.
