I was referred by my primary physican. This Dr. Wasted my time, I was diagnosed with myoglobinuria and he could not confirm the source of the problem. I had to travel on several occasions from Yuma Arizona to hear nothing, so I stop going to him.

Don't go to this doctor!!!!! I have myasthenia gravis and he put me on 8 00 mg of mestinon 3 times a day which of course gave me severe diarrhea which we could not control so he took me off cold turkey and I went into a cholinergic crisis and was flown out to Barrows and almost died. I spent 2 weeks in a coma as all my organs began to shut down. Barrows gave up on me and a C DC doctor was called in. I was incubated the whole time and my wife was there all the time. The CDC doc was the one who got me through to get off the respirator. I spent another 2 weeks in the main hospital and the another 2 weeks in rehab learning how to swallow and walk again. The CDC doctor told me never let someone give me that much mestinon AGAIN AND SHE WAS SERIOUS!! I still have health issues from that and recently had to have my gall bladder removed due to the toxins from the high doses of mestinon. He should not ever prescribe that high a dose to anyone!

Not A Good Doctor!

Would not recommend this doctor. He doesn't listen, and jumps to conclusions. He didn't read my records correctly and I had to constantly correct him. I'm just trying to find out why I have the pain and problems that I have been having and he acted like I was wasting his time!!!!!
