Very rude and unprofessional

This guy is very rude and unprofessional. He told me it was safe for me to drive on muscle relaxers and pain killers but when I asked for documentation from him saying it were safe, he refused to give me any paperwork stating so then had the audacity to accuse me of running a game. He is a joke and a disgrace to his profession.
