    Patient Comments (1)
    in Portland TN |
    This doctor is one of the most rude, heartless and uncaring doctor I have ever seen. His words to my ten year old daughter was,"Once you accept the fact of not being able to see the quicker you can move on with your life". My question was, "What can I do?" He said,"Let her live her life. You have already exhausted time, money and effort for no reason because it didn't work".NEVER GO SEE HIM!!! He is retiring in six months. Thank God because no one needs to be subject to that type of cruelty!
