Got conflicting answers from him
in Birmingham, AL |
This is the worst doctor I have visited in the Birmingham area. I have been to his office twice with a scheduled appointment (2 months in advanced) and the two times they have made me wait for more than 1 hour. The last time I went, the nurse practitioner had to see me because he had to go "vote" and did not bother to let her patient know in advance. After my procedure, he never bothered to explain my medical conditions, didn't answer any of my questions and made a decision without my consent.
