    He sees patients with a short notice and seems knowledgeable enough. I just can't recommend a doctor that talks sarcastically about your condition, your pain or (his misconception of) your knowledge. Scolded me for not mentioning issues (which he forgot or dismissed) and just kept getting increasingly scornful throughout each appointment. Belittling a patient as person and their pain is not OK. Just wish I got a proper referral instead of seeing the first available specialist.
