He's a know it all doctor that cops and attitude when the patient questions he reasons. I don't appreciate being called fat and yes I'm overweight but being "fat" is not the cause of the issues I went for. He needs to go back to medical school and Learn bedside manners and learn how to treat patients better not sure how he stays in practice to be honest. Stay away and go elsewhere unless you like to be picked apart then this is your DR
