Unprofessional and rude!

He blamed all of my health problems on weight while I was a patient. Took the easy way out, without ever actually diagnosing anything properly. Then I receive a letter in the mail with him basically "firing" me as a patient because of alleged missed appointments. This is FALSE. If I ever had to reschedule or cancel, I always called. If I missed any appointments as he claimed in the letter, I was not aware of these so-called appointments. There were no missed calls from his office or voicemails reminding me of these alleged appointments that I supposedly missed. He didn't even bother to sign the letter. Very rude, unprofessional and dim-witted doctor. DO NOT RECOMMEND.
