San Rafael, CA |
The worst out there. He's a quack who has no business practicing. Spent 5 minutes evaluating and spent an hour and a half waiting watching the staff chewing gum stumbling over each other. Joke of a doctor!
Terrible lazy doctor. Doesn't care about the patient and only cares about the money. Spent less time and less testing with me than any of the other ophthalmologist. His mis diagnosis differed from the rest which could've killed me. Will be held liable though. Took a month to get the results as well. Full of himself! Needs to retire. Lazy pure lazy!
