Patient Reviews (1)
in Los Angeles, CA |
Very impatient with listening and communicating (cuts you off constantly), discouraging and negative when discussing condition, insensitive, defensive and argumentative regarding questions about referrals from staff being done incorrectly, and other questions such as request to see a specialist. Perhaps he is also frustrated with the state of our medical system, and sadly admits to not being in good health himself, but he has an ethical responsibility to treat patients with more consideration.
