Patient Comments (3)
Camp Hill, PA |
One of the worst Doctor's I have ever dealt with. He was not concerned in the least about how I felt. Talked over me when I tried to answer his questions and had me in tears. Asked me what I thought I had...excuse me, that's why I'm here so you can tell me. Did not return my call when I asked for an interpretation of my blood results so after over a month I am still in excruciating pain and still don't know what I have. Not going back.

Misdiagnosed with Fibromyalgia and benign hypermobility. Over a year later found out I have a genetic connective tissue disorder (Ehlers-Danlos syndrome) POTS, and Mast Cell Activation Syndrome. If I didn't seek out another doctor I would still have the wrong diagnosis. I was also treated poorly during my initial appointment, berated for not knowing my symptoms, and cried when he left the room. Horrible.

Terrible. Ended il being diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disorder years later after this provider told me it was fibromyalgia and that I needed to work out. I could've died. What a quack.
