Patient Comments (1)
Palos Verdes, CA |
This "doctor" diagnosed me as having Alzheimers disease. I am a competent, adult (senior), woman who does not now nor have I ever had Alzheimers. I will never understand how he could have come up with that conclusion. Alz.. takes many years to effect one's life, not a couple of months. I was taking some prescription meds, all for general health problems. I was not taking any drugs for pain, etc. Therefore his "expertise" was from left field. I would not let him diagnose my dog!
