Patient Comments (1)
West Bloomfield, MI |
One of the most uncaring medical professionals I have ever met. He caused my family member harm and did not care. He should not deal with people. He should stick to research as he clearly does not care about people. Even if he were the only ENT available, I would suggest that any patient smart enough to research their doctors, avoid him at all costs. I have never written this type of review but everyone should be warned about this horrible practitioner.
