The doctor has no interest in treating a UTI. He laughs a lot and jokes with his staff. Asks me, the patient what I was there for. He had to results of a urine culture and told me that not a problem. His staff sent me to Venice Regional for IV antibiotic but never spoke to me or the staff on the ACU floor.
