Did not read my elderly father's medication list or accurately dose a dangerous antibiotic for a routine bladder infection. This medication caused fatal poisoning.

Do not waste your time or money

The worst Dr. I have ever encountered.Rude, demeaning, wrong diagnosis repeatedly. Yelled at me when I showed him test results that proved he was wrong. I wouldn't believe how bad he is unless I experienced him first hand.

Awful.

He reminds me of the doctor from the Little Shop of Horrors, STAY AWAY. Very sadistic, definitely stay away from him.He's rough, rude, and spent half the time yelling at me and blatantly ignoring my questions and the other half putting me through pain.
