    Patient Review

    Did not feel like the doctor spent any time in the room . The fellow came in then the doctor and never gave me any say in my care and disregarded the prior doctor I have seen before and did not read any past medical procedures before hand. Was not willing to treat any symptoms because he said they were not bad enough
