Always seemed in a hurry and not thorough at all. Gave me a misdiagnosis and still charges full surgery fee after not performing the surgery and telling me it healed itself, but I have the same condition as before. Keep in mind he told me it could not heal on its own. NOTHING HAS CHANGED!!...Read More
