Patient Comments (1)
Oakland, CA |
He was absolutely terrible, had horrible bed-side manner,and it was like pulling teeth to get ANY information from him regarding my pulmonary condition. Worst of all, when I kept pushing for answers, he had the audacity to say, "It sounds like you want something to be wrong!" It should be noted I had been in accute respiratory failure less than 48 hours before this comment was made following a surgery. No, Dr. Steyer, I don't want something to be wrong, I just wanted to know what happened...
