    He has a rotten bedside manner and doesn't care about what is best for the patient. My daughter is 25 yrs old with stage 4 cancer. She had surgery through her neck the week prior to our visit and he gives her no indication that he was going to place his hand around the back of her neck. His fingers where over the surgical site. She tried to flinch away from him and told him it hurt. His reply was, "get used to it". Requested to refer to another oncologist, he declined! I have no respect for him
