Worst Experience Ever

This was the WORST experience I have ever had with a doctor. I wish that I could give him zero stars in every category. This guy is rude, insensitive, and talks down to you. I implore you. Do NOT go to this unfeeling poor excuse of a man never mind doctor.

My Son

Dr Vives: I dont feel you have the compassion towards this perticular patient,Here we had a 26 year old with c/p. That was going in for a Baclofen pump. Knowing the parent had alot of concerns. Now one week later my son has a fever of unknown source. Did we hear from you? No Did you come to see him in E.D. No you sent a lacky. I am very disppleased and as far as my son I sure hope that he gets better. All that we wanted from you is to acknowldige us or him.
