Not impressedat all.! I WAITED FOR HIM ALL DAY. He stood outside my fathers resthome room and never came in. Another... time I Queried the dosage of a certain drug. He gave me completely wrong information which had disabled my father. He didnt seem to understand what Parkinsons is and prescribed drugs which are adviced not to give parkinsons ppl. It is frightening that he works in an older person's residence.!!!!read more
