Patient Comments (2)
Oak forest I'll. |
I was very disappointed - he talked to me with his eyes closed most of the time. He was so focused on medication that I don't think he heard 1/2 of what I said. I requested copy of records to take else where and was given record of messages between him and staff- whereas he belittled my symptoms and conditions. I was shocked at his pompass demeaning comments in my health records and will never go back to him. The office is filthy too
He is exceptional! I cannot say enough wonderful things about him. If you ever need to see a specialist, he recommends some amazing doctors. He explains everything in detail when you are at your visit, almost as if you are getting a college science lesson! I have never waited more than 10 min to see him, and have never been rushed or pushed out of the office. He is truly for the patient.
