Patient Comments (1)
Terrible. I was diagnosed with hypertension before seeing him. I was on meds for it. he never prescribed meds even after 3 visits (1.5 years) seeing him and having hypertensive readings during each visit. My wife tried to ask questions during the visit, he told her to be quiet. On my last visit, he kept me waiting in the waiting room for over an hour to teach me a lesson after missing my previous appointment. Unless I somehow insulted him, I can't explain the reason for this treatment.
