My son was a patient of this doctor. He referred the father of my my son to a medically unlicensed Florida sober home that falsified a court order to force my son involuntarily to Florida. Dr. Chukilum then added diagnoses to my sons chart overnight in an effort to get insurance payment approval on a second appeal. When I attempted to get a copy of his medical records the doctor refused stating he didn't keep records at his office. The dr then forwarded my emails to him to the facility in Florid

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.
