He is a very good and caring doctor. I would recommend to anyone.
Duluth, GA |
Doctor is condescending to patients when it comes to info you've read to try and understand your medical condition. Discounts everything you say and rushes you during your appointment saying I can't answer that now because I have other patients waiting!! Staff is less than helpful and DOES NOT ever call you back despite numerous calls to them. They wouldn't even call me back to schedule a medical procedure that the dr. ordered!!
in Dacula, GA |
Very quick to discount anything you read on the internet about your illness even if has been printed in Neurological journals by the Mayo Clinic or Harvard. Always is double booked and I have to wait and when you do see him it's all business. He seems rushed and doesn't really have any definitive answers to why something may be occurring or if it's linked to the med given...such as some side effect.
