Patient Comments (1)

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....more
