We saw him 2 times. - long waiting time - not prepared for the visit (= has not reviewed the results of previous tests which means and additional 1hr and half of wait) - perform non reimbursed procedure without warning patients - charge for non performed procedures (also non reimbursed) which is medical billing fraud - ineffective staff, non responsive (does return call), does not fix issues but send files to debt collection agencies
