Patient Comments (2)

Doctor was inattentive, never introduced himself until I asked him What's your name? never seemed to genuinely care about my condition. Appointment was rushed and my questions were never answered. very rude and terrible experience.

Physician seemed quite competent with diagnosis, but was brusque and impatient in explaining condition to me. His manner was not easy to deal with.
