Find another doctor, any doctor would be better than this one. Take my advice, don't waste your time with this guy.

All he wants to do is write a prescrip refill and get you out of there til next time. . Kept telling him my son has anxiety. He would ask my son, do you have anxiety? Son says no. He turns to us and says, see, he doesnt have anxiety. Even called office supervisor to complain and was blown off. Very disappointing. It takes so much time to establish new doc, rapport, etc. So tired of these uncaring drs.
