Patient Comments (2)
in Salt Lake City, UT |
I went in for kidney stones I had been fighting for 3 weeks. I was looking to get a CT to see where they were, he dismissed this idea as"pointless" he then says" we get the CT and then what? We can't do any thing for you". Very dismissive and condescending
Atlanta, GA |
Dr. Medlin was focused on only one particular thing instead of taking all things into consideration. He was knowledgable, but felt he jumped around making him hard to follow. The BIG downfall was his office staff at The BMI clinic. They were very unorganized, uneducated in the process & some were plain rude.
