I am so glad to read you review auntie! I thought I was the only one! His office was close to my house when I moved here years ago and needed to see someone about a swollen ankle that I'd had for a few weeks. He told me I had gout...nothing was working that he prescribed and the more research I did on this illness I realized I needed a second opinion--sprained ankle. It took me a long time to go back, but I needed to for a soar throat with a fever. He did a strep test that came back negative, and proscribed a drug that after consulting two other doctors and the ER I would NEVER take! Prednisone. The side affects were horrible, and wouldn't help in the long run. After things hadn't changed a week or so later I went to get my second opinion only to be told I had mono AND strep., bleeding ear infections, and a common cold. They immediately put me on an antibiotic similar to amoxicillin, and a very strong dose of pain meds for the next four days. I hate that I still have to pay him for his lack of help!! It’s been two months since this fiasco and I still have issues, because it took so long to get the medicine I needed. The damage has been done! Horrible service as well! When I scheduled my appointment with him this last time I was told 6pm. I showed up at 5:30 to fill out forms for new insurance, and was done with them by 5:40. I waited in pain with screaming kids until 6:30, sat down in the back room until 6:35, he came in and was gone by 6:37. At 6:45 I was taken back to be given a strep test and by 7:36 he came back to tell me it was negative, and the prescription.
