Beachwood, OH |
Poor care by this physician. He was condescending, belittling, and arrogant. Quick to make an assessment, just as quick to change it. I have NEVER written a bad physican review but felt compelled this time because the care provided was so lousy. I decided I would write because I would have changed my mind before seeing him had I read a review such as this one.

What an absolute waste of time!! Very dismissive in what I tried to report as my issue and then on my after visit summary, what I went there for wasn't even on it!! His diagnosis was, "well can't find anything, sometimes this is just is and we don't know why. If it gets worse, come back and see me." Are you kidding?? If it gets worse...why in the heck do you think I'm there to begin with!! An absolute waste of 2 hours of my life! Stay away from this so called "doctor"!!! ZERO Stars!

Had his mind made up about my 6 week long sinus condition without even listening to me. Only after actually examining me did he agree it was a bacterial infection. Antibiotic he prescribed did nothing. The best part: I woke up the day before my appointment and my left eye was bloodshot. He said it was unlikely it was related to my sinus pressure/pain and TOLD ME TO GO TO URGENT CARE OR EYE DOCTOR TO GET IT CHECKED OUT. Googled causes of red eye and sinus infection is main cause! Unreal.
