Absolutely terrible. Walked into the room having already decided that there was nothing wrong with me- even with referral and visible symptoms plus blood tests. Refuses to change his mind and instead prescribed me something that I can't even take- for reasons clearly listed on my chart. Instead of correcting the error, insisted that I take the medication and made it inconvenient to talk to him. Not that it would have changed his opinion- as nothing will.
