The biggest jerk ever

This Dr has no bedside manner. He made my daughter come back 4 times and did absolutely nothing. He would not provide a Dr note for the time she was off and she lost her job the day she went back.

VERY RUDE AND UNCARING

I dislocated my shoulder and went to see this doctor because I just moved to the area and didn't know anyone. Omg, he didn't even listen to me.... I spent all of two minutes talking to him and all he did was shut down every question I had. I asked him why I needed an MRI and figured he would tell me. He said to me that if I didn't want an MRI then why was I even there cause I didn't wanna be helped. So anyways, I have to see a surgeon anyway because he isn't one and can't and probably doesn't want to even help me. My advice is see anyone other than this guy.
