Patient Comments (1)
Albertville, AL |
I had to literally fight to get an appontment in this office. When we did get in the staff was not friendly and the doctor was even worse. He did not want to listen to any past history or anything we wanted to say. His "bedside manner" was very poor, his explanation of what he thought was wrong had a lot of opinion and not fact and he just was not kind in any way at all. I had no confidence in him and will not be back.
