This man is a joke! I went to the ER because I was bleeding (I'm 8 weeks pregnant) I got the lucky opportunity to see him. Basically I got an infection and he prescribed me medicine that I shouldn't take while pregnant and basically didn't listen to anything I told him. He's not compassionate, and I could tell he didn't care about my well being. For being pregnant I think he should've took me more serious before prescribing me pills that would make me miscarry. Thank god I read the warnings page and called back and had some other Dr prescribe me something safe. He is not a good doctor at all! Don't recomend.
