Patient Reviews (2)
Waldorf, MD |
Do NOT see him if you have one or more chronic illnesses. He kept telling me I was perfectly fine even because his tests didn't show anything, even though I clearly still have eye pains and vision that has me concerned about driving. He didn't have any suggestions for me except that I should consider seeking a mental health specialist, I'm not even joking. He implied on multiple occasions that I was taking my life for granted. Clearly he doesn't know what it's like to be chronically ill. 0 stars
