Just like the other reviews said he doesn't listen, and just schedules you for test! I have seen him several times and each time he asks me if I have the illness that is the cause of me seeing him! Does he even keep notes or records from previous visits or is it that he just can't find them...more

Very rude man. Flat out told me he didn't care about the only reason I went to see him, didn't bother asking for my medical history and when I did manage to present my concern he dismissed it as being related to some other condition that I know I don't have because of continuous testing for it...more
