Full Review Rating Breakdown
A doctor with tightly packed schedule and no concern for patients

He spent very little time with me. He schedule 15 minutes for every patient, but in actuality, he spent about 3 minutes with me. What concerns me more is that he doesn't seem to know much about diseases! He simply ordered a blood test. And then never even bother to discuss the results with me. It is a total waste of time to see him.
