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
He is one of the rare breed of efficient doctors who is vert decent and would take time to listen to his patients! Very knowledgeable and caring!
