Problem Dr.

You aren't likely to see him; he only sends his RN Dana Favot to see his patients for the most part. He calls, though. He is unpleasant, surly, talks over you, refuses to answer all questions, and is short. He does say he has clinic hours, but in reality, he does not see the patients, he just looks at the files and listens to his PA who presents the information she wants to him.
