I waited over 4 months to see him. He could not keep the dates correct with my health timeline, could not keep my answers correct to his questions and would keep going back in his notes to verify them more than once. Basically called me a liar about an answer I gave to the Dr who sent me to him & then found it in the prior notes but never apologized. Quoted European statistics to me which was odd as we were both in America. Two words sum up my visit with him. 1. Quack and 2. Retirement
