Patient Comments (1)
in Los Angeles, CA |
HORRIBLE! First visit ok, asked a lot of questions, friendly & professional. Prescribed MRI & I went back to discuss results. Appt scheduled at 5pm called in at 6:30pm! He was confused & disoriented taking a lot of time to explain how medication is approved by FDA; how neurology is not definitive. He prescribed an F-MRI - referred me to a lab that REQUIRED $2K in advance via PAYPAL?!? Bungled next appt, no diagnosis or treatment plan. Ordered spinal tap test. Switched to UCLA NPI! Now happy!
