    I went to office 3 times in a span of 4 months. Each visit took 2 + hours. I understand sometimes things happen but not 3 times consecutively! Total disregard for other people's time...

    Is aloof, disengaged, does not like his evaluation being called into question. Good surgeon, with very poor social skills in dealing with patients.
