I would not recommend this man to no-one he doesn't listen to what you are saying he seems to only care about putting you on meds that he won't explain what they are for. He is very rude this last visit he ask me what do I want him to do about my seizures because I don't have enough of them a day so he don't know what to call my condition because I only have seizures once a month every month for over a year now but he wants me to continue taking meds that is not working
in Guymon , Ok |
He does not listen to patient's concern and does not seem to even respect the patient's complaints. He does not present a professional physician's attitude or record keeping. The patient should not feel belittled to the point of crying each time they leave the office. After any tests were run there was no follow up call from his office as to the results and when called it took forever for the results to be even found and then just a quick answer from the the nurse. The Dr. never addressed them
