This doctor is a complete joke. I was in a car accident and went it for an appointment. He didn't spent 2 minutes with me, told me there was nothing he could do and that he wasn't that kind of doctor, then proceeded to take $300. Additionally the AC sounded like it was going to blow up and I wasn't even greeted by a nurse upon arrival. The check in counter has a closed window and they didn't open for like 20 minutes.
