Doesn't listen to what patient is telling him. If your MRI doesn't look bad enough to him you must be lying about your ailments. Told me to suck up the pain. Worst Dr. I've been to in a longtime. Save your copay.
in Alabaster, AL |
Waited 3 weeks in excruciating back pain on an appointment then finally on a Friday the dr spent 3 minutes with me and sent me to another dr. He refused to help me with pain meds so here I sit over a month of severe pain and still searching for help. My dog gets more humane treatment feom the vet. All the work the doc did on my behalf could've been done over the phone the day after my injury instead of making me suffer for weeks with still no relief.
