    One of the worst doctors I've ever encountered! Was his patient for about 1 1/2 years, and he was always, dismissing symptoms. Never had time to listen and would never treat pain, EVER! Sent me to the same specialist 3 times, and they kept sending me back to him. Took 10 MONTHS for him to finally give me a diagnosis after I contacted his supervisor and they admitted to making a mistake with my care. Had my rights violated by ER's because of his incompetence, and the state won't do anything about
