Bad Doctor

Under his care I received diabetes due to prednisone use. An A1C of 9.4, kidney failure, heart failure. He keep other Doctors from looking into my high heart rates due to diabetes. I later had a blockage with a stent installed on a emergency room trip. I was told I could have died. Was told by another doctor he gave me diabetes on purpose with malice and intent.
