Riverside, CA |
worst doctor ever and a liar. what a JERK! I found a new doctor after he refused to treat me. after a broken back the strongest pain meds I could from him was tylenal. SAM BOLIVAR find a new line of work QUACK !
in Riverside, CA |
The wait is always horribly long. One time I waited for 2 hours before the staff told me that he wasn't even in the office due to an 'emergency call'. When I mentioned how long I had waited for him in the waiting room, he said "You are welcome to find another Dr." The last straw was when he prescribed my father in law a statin drug without even getting lab work done. This is sneaky. I will not stand for it. Will not be taking my father in law back to him.
