WORST EVER

This egotistical jerk needs to get over himself & start CARING for his patients, especially ones like my Mom who needed follow-up care for a deadly infectious disease. That when we call to say my Mom can't afford $360 (after insurance) for your prescribed meds, can you prescribe something else, that someone needs to return our call. That when a patient is not getting better after 7 months of continuous UTI/VRE related infections, you don't NOT recommend follow-up visits. That you don't dare minimize the effects of MRSA and talk down to us, when my mother, brother (and nearly myself) almost DIED from hospital-acquired MRSA. Waited 1 full week for a returned phone call following a 30-day hospitalization to get a follow-up appt, finally they told me they would rather Mom see another Infectious Disease dr.
