    I returned for a follow up appointment with Dr Kinder today. He was planning to do an X-ray with dye. I am highly allergic to shellfish so I told the ladies working that up front just to be safe because I don't have a clue as to what is in that stuff. He came busting in the room angry at me for "claiming to be allergic to something that I'm not". He has no bedside manner at all. Terrible doctor. I wouldn't trust him with a toothpick.
