He should retire from the medical field, his bedside manner is terrible and is totally unprofessional. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis by him, and immediately prescribed Plaquinil to do away with the Prednisone disregarding the fact that I already lost one eye and knowing that Plaquinil...Read More
