    Difficult to imagine less compassion or willingness to listen. Told me my attempts to explain past history were "crap", and that I had no right to request discussion of quality of life because I had none. Offered to provide me with prescription for new blood thinner but changed his mind after listening to click of metal mitral valve which is clearly noted in patient history. Request for referral to new cardiologist was made.
