I had a very bad experience with this doctor in 2017. He was completely disrespectful and accused me of lying because I did not respond well when he was treating me for psuedotumor cerebi with Topiramate. He told me that the symptomatic tarlov cyst, that i have been treated without pain relief in 2016,didnt cause pain. He ignored most of my symptoms and gave me medication that fixed one symptom at the cost of making others worst. Very difficult and confusing time of my life and this doctor made me feel he was going to help despite his skeptical view. When i didn't respond to medication well he kicked me out and insisted i was faking. He ruined my social security and they rejected me. His doctors notes was completely incorrect in regards to the symptoms I complained about and diagnoses. He helped make a very bad situation worst. Very uncompassionate and inhumane. Needed help and threw me away when he didn't understand what was happening. I was devastated.
