He refused to listen, laughed in my face at a serious diagnosis that I was concerned about, only to be diagnosed by another Dr more then a year later by blood tests and family history later. I would not recommend this guy for anything unless you want to take serious chances with your health. I don't say this lightly, I sadly say this from experience.
