I hAve the misfortune experience wit this man twice and can not believe they let this man have a medical license. He was not my Dr. At Redding Family Medical Group but had an emergency the 1st time I saw him on a Saturday morning about 10 years ago. I am a diabetic and also have Moyamoya disease. This disease is when your blood supply to your brain is cut off and you get horrible migrains. I was in horrific pain that morning so when I went to see him I was desperate. Mind you they have all my records there and had to have 3 brain surgeries. This man man not only harassed me and lectured me for 30 min.he basically said I was labour my pain brought me to tears. After scolding me like a child (mind you I was 40 yrs old at the time) a nurse who knew me there finally gave me a shot that took the pain away in about 10 min. The next unfortunate experience happened about 9 years later, my Dr. Was out of town and all I needed was a prescription for test strips to check my blood sugar, he comes in and lectures me about diabetes. ..mind you I take very good care of myself and have had this disease for over 4t years. All I wanted was a prescription, no big deal or that's what I thought. This dr. If that's what you want to call him is horrible and I think he was probably abused as a child to be so insecure. RFMG needs to take a better look at the staff they have if they care. Don't take my word for it just look at his ratings on the Internet and they speak for itself. As a business man and consumer I would never do work or use his services. Other patients that I've talked to feel the same way. Being a Dr. Means being kind and caring.
