Patient Comments (1)
Beckley, WV |
This doctor is the worse doctor I have ever been to. He talks down to you and treats you like you do not know nothing. He actually ask me if I wanted to fight him. He grabbed me several times by the arms and was forcefully moving them back and forth and pushing me forward and his nurse seen it all. When i told her she seen it all she said this doctor was only trying to guide me and then threatened to call the cops and he was the one with his hands on me. I recommend no one to go here.
