I feel he was a good doctor, but I think it's time to retire. Everything felt very old-school Also, though I know this sounds terrible, but its true... He smelled funny. Whether it was his dirty lab coat or shirt with stains, I'm unsure but it was very noticeable. Please clean your clothes before you come to work in a healthcare industry. I'm a healthcare provider myself and I would not come to my job looking/smelling the way he does. New doctor next time for me... Sorry
