in San Luis Obispo, CA |
This probably will not make the review list because there is not one thing nice I can say about him. My daughter is seven months pregnant with a seriously bad sinus infection and he was the dr. on call. She was concerned with what is ok to take for the sinus pain and overall misery she has felt for about two weeks, and he was almost cruel with scarsiam. She has been on antibiotics but not getting better , and not only was NO help, but truly mean with all her inquiries. Do Not See Him...........
