Patient Comments (1)
in Joliet, IL |
Wouldn't recommend. I am a very young patient and I am clueless as to what I have, and he seems to be clueless and keeps throwing different prescription medications at me to "test" them, while I take 2 pills and suffer until he gives me another one. Unbelievable.
