Surprise, AZ |
I was seen by this doctor once and it was a horible experience. He rushed through my visit. Did not even seem interested in my history then referred me to a different office without even an exam or anything. Not even fit to treat animals.

Not a very good doctor extremely robotic in demeanor, his body language and affect were non existent he has zero charisma. He is very matter of fact, but does not care to listen to his patients. I had to see him because of state achess ins. I was there for an anxiety issue that put in the E.R. But, this dr. First questions both time I saw him was in regards to my heart. when I asked questions on why he treated me this he decided to just kick me out and said he did not want to deal with me. done.
