Office staff are the inexperienced I've met in any medical office. I dropped off a request for walker with chair & 4 wheels referral over 5 weeks ago to be faxed over to the pharmacy to deliver when ready. Well till now it has not been done.

This quack doctor is only interested in taking in as many patients as he can and does absolutely nothing to help you or to treat your condition.
