Would give a 0 star if possible. DOES NOT LISTEN OR HELP! RUN AWAY FROM THIS DOCTOR

I went into this urgent care office to see what I had going on with my stomach. I have previously had an H. Pylori infection and felt the same exact symptoms as last time. He told me I couldn't have heart burn by my sternum it's not possible ( It is). I required a Urea Breath Test to diagnosis active H pylori and not blood work which he was adamant about testing. H. Pylori levels will remain high after a previous infection but he didn't have the knowledge on this subject. I went to a gastroenterologist took a breath test was positive for H. Pylori given the proper antibiotic course and am on the way to recovery. This Doctor must not keep up with his reading on new ways to test for infections or illnesses its 2017 might be time to retire and let a doctor who cares about patients.
