The dr was very rude and talked down to us. Bedside manor was horrible. We were sent to this Dr. By our family Dr. and he acted like we had no reason to be there. I have never been treated this way by a professional EVER!!!!! This Doctor shouldn't be working with the public. He doesn't know how...more
