Patient Comments (1)
in West Des Moines, IA |
He refused to listen to me and my concerns. Told me that if I didn't go with his ONE recommendation that he would not see me anymore. Asked "what about the patient's choice?" He said I could either choose HIS recommendation or don't see him at all. VERY RUDE.
