I won't go back!! Will not listen to you at all....treated me like a naughty child! I tried to explain my symptoms, he did not listen. He had his idea and no explanations! Ordered a MRI to check for a brain tumor....4 days later I made several phone calls only to learn he had not looked at it yet. Finally found a nurse (with good people skills) that said she would get him to read it and call me back. I had to call again to get the results and still have not heard from him or his office!!!!!!!!!!

He was rude. Did not explain what he was going to do before he did it. Barely talked at all. I Felt I was almost being attacked. If he had been providing care for a child of mine I would have stopped the exam and left.
