I have never experienced treatment like this from a Physician! He was very unprofessional and arrogant! He dosen't want you to be aware of your own diseases and he wants to tell you what you have and call your other specialist unknowable! He insulted me and his staff well what can I say however you are whom you work for, I guess! I'm calling my insurance and changing him has my primary care physician immediately!

Worst Doctor Ever!

Never have I dealt with a more unprofessional person, let alone a doctor. I am a Law Enforcement Officer and have a difficult schedule to manage, I had to make an appointment a month in advance due to his limited availability. When I saw the doctor I asked him to consider a medication called Narcan due to me having the potential of being accidentally exposed to drugs due to the nature of my work. The doctor incorrectly stated that it was illegal for him to prescribe the medication. I informed him in the state of California, because of the declared Opioid epidemic that the medication is even available without a prescription. I referred him to the FDA website for additional information. When I asked him to please research the medication he became rude, disrespectful and raised his voice at me. As I was talking to him he rudely interrupted me and told me to leave and, stormed out of the office like a child. The volume of his voice caught the attention of front desk staff who asked what happened, after explaining the situation they stated they would talk to the doctor on my behalf to see if he would reconsider. He stated if I provided my Law enforcement credentials he would consider the request. I immediately provided a copy of my ID and badge and I was given a follow-up appointment in a week. Today, the day of my follow-up appointment after waiting in the Doctors office I was told by the receptionist that the Doctor stated again it was illegal for him to prescribe the medication and I would not be receiving the medication. I asked to speak to the doctor regarding his decision. After a short moment, the receptionist stated the doctor refused to speak to me now or in the future and his decision was final and asked that I leave. The receptionist kindly suggested I find another doctor and gave me her recommendations. Never have I received such poor treatment, please do yourself a favor and seek another doctor.

Awful experience both times I saw him.

This doctor is absolutely horrid. The first time I went to see him, I had moved to Lake Elsinore from out of state. He messed up my medications so bad. He also gave me prescriptions for just about every test you can think of. I told him I probably wouldn't be doing any of the testing and he got upset with me. The second time I saw him, he said he wouldn't give me my prescriptions because of no testing and refused to give me a referral for a chiropractor. I don't recommend this doctor to anyone.

Worse Dr. I ever met

This Dr. was rude, arrogant, judgmental and very unprofessional to say the least. I'm a new patient and asked him to help me get my blood pressure back to normal. He laughed with a smirk and said what do you want me to do about it. I was floored could not believe a Dr. would respond so unprofessionally. Walked out of the room asked for my co-pay back. Terrible Dr. folks don't waste your time. By the way it's a dirty office and most of the office person worries was about the insurance. Waste of time.
