He doesn't listen. He makes mistakes how he prescribes medication. I have caught him in lies. When I have called he never calls me back. I feel anxious when I have to see him. Hilo has very few decent doctors. He's a quack.
in Hilo, HI |
He has been very helpful in a time of great grief and suffering. He is a good man who can make a person who is in excruciating pain bus a smile.I had a hard time with doctors before and so far have found two really good people who happen to be doctors that have actually treated me with dignity and compassion he is one and Doctor Benard is the other.
