When looking at my cat scan I asked What are all those white dots? and he replied That's a bunch of crap. When he was looking at the cat scan for the first time when I was there he said Let's go for a walk while we only walked in the hallway and he spoke to another doctor about ducks. When we got back to the patient room he told me to sit in a chair that was in the back of the room probably so I wouldn't ask anymore questions. It was obvious it was the first time he looked at my scan!

I would definitely NOT recommend this Doctor to anybody!!!! There is something wrong with somebody that can't look at you while talking to you. Never asked me anything about anything in regards to my past medical history, work history or anything! Needless to say, this was my 2nd and last visit with him. He shouldn't be allowed to (see) patients. He is an Unsub. Easy getting an appointment with him cuz nobody else is seeing him.
