This person should not be considered a doctor. He lacks of kindness, knowledge and just empathy for the patient and family members. I am also a physician and I would never recommend this person to anyone. I completely understand things are critical nowadays due to COVID. But, that is not an excuse to show a little bit of care for those who are going through difficult times.

Let me start off by saying how absolutely dissapointed and absolutely sick to my stomach I am with this so person who should never be considered a DR. By any means, my father was under your care for not even 2 days before having to leave in an ambulance back to the E.R. In critical condition becouse somebody decided to overlook all the patients info and stop all medications upon arrival, I do not wish that any person ever has to experience such a terrible experience with someone as incompetent
