Patient Comments (1)
Englewood, OH |
Just feel like he hurries you in, doesn't give many options to his patients, HATES for patients to get second opinions and will not see you again if you do, old-fashioned methods without considering newer less-invasive methods of treatment and surgery. Very disappointed!
