December 2015
Dr. Endow is courteous, knowledgeable, and respectful. However, I´m not sure he believes in the validity of my illness, which was diagnosed by a VM rheumatologist. He did not inquire about how I felt. When I asked a follow-up question from a recent consult @ VM Urgent Care, he shrugged it off. He seemed rushed.
