I waited months for an appointment

It took a couple of month to get an appointment, only the be greeted by" Well, Why are you here?" I was really hoping for some type of help! Not a rude attitude. He dismissed everything I said, blatantly ignored my ideas. And diagnosed me with unexplained headaches! My headache isn't why I made the appointment at all. Now, I get to wait 2 more months in pain, for my next appointment!

Do not go to this Dr.

He mis diagnosed my father resulting in his death. He kicked us out of the office whenever we brought up the disease my father actually had because he personally doesn't believe in the disease. This idiot is a terrible doctor and if it wasn't for him my father would still be alive.
