Patient Comments (4)
Altamonte Springs, FL |
He is rude, unprofessional and disrespectful. He got angry when I politely asked him if there was a way he could fill out paperwork so I could apply for FMLA. He also recommended a clean out for the 3rd time never reviewing it with me. When I asked questions, he got mad, flipped his computer away from me and told me I could just take my daughter to get a different procedure instead where they use a tube to resolve the issue. I left the office in tears and will NOT be following back up with again
Apopka, FL |
No interest in what I had to say as aparent, he took offense when I question his desire to re do testing that were done in august and he seemed very judgmental on my choice to do integrative treatments for my daughter. This was my first time meeting this man and he just expected me to entrust him my child with no questions. He walked out on my family and I when I agreed with him that we were not getting anywhere and advised him that he was not answering my questions. Sarcastic &Condescending!
New Port Richey, FL |
My son has a lot of medical complications and I have taken to a number of specialists including two GI Drs. I finally felt as though i was being heard and understood. It is right to the point and honest and after going to what seems like a hundred different Drs that exactly what you want. I am so grateful to have found him and am hopeful that we can finally get some answers!
