Patient Comments (2)
in Edison, NJ |
Not a good doctor - please DO NOT go to him. He does not have respect for other healthcare professionals, he does not know how to talk to them at all as I overheard him being rude and disrespectful to them. Everyone is supposed to work together for the benefit of the patient, no one is smarter than one another, and I don't think he understands that. Worst doctor and worst experience ever. please do not go here if you want a good doctor who is kind and patient, he is the complete opposite.
