Beware

Arrogant, incapable of finishing a sentence at times. Condescending and full of himself. How does he keep a job? Distracted.

Rude, negative, condescending, This so called Dr. made me feel like I was an idiot. He misdiagnosed my child which resulted in invasive surgery after days of suffering.
