Patient Comments (3)
Mechanicsburg, PA |
Very disappointed. First problem was having an ear infection and antibiotics didn't help. I went to see him and he looked it up and said it was a cholestotima which usually requires an ear surgery to fix. He failed to get me a proper referral, so the specialist ENT refused to see me without even checking for a referral before confirming my appointment. He also prescribed the wrong dosage of HBP medicine, even though the correct dose is in my chart. I'm finding a new doctor.
Horrible. I do not recommend him whatsoever. Did not care to take the time to address any of my concerns. Rushed the appointment. Filled out my medical form incorrectly. Parts of the physical he signed for were never completed or even addressed. I could be partially blind and he never would have known because he simply did not care. Upon asking him about why he did not complete the physical properly, he said it doesn't matter. DO NOT GO TO HIM.

Rushed his examination because "I don't have time for this, I have other patients." Even though there were next to no other people in the waiting room at any point during the visit. He did not listen to concerns or answer questions, rather claimed everything was an argument that he did not care to have. His demeanor was incredible rude the entire visit and walked out of my visit.
