I would not recommend this Doctor, he walked in my room sat down at computer and started clicking mouse, then almost undet his breath said he was Dr. Smith never looked at me, he should have knocked then entered, followed by Hi I'm Dr. Smith with a hand shake, nope. Also nurse before him asked what my worst spot was i said between shoulder blades, doctor comes in talking about my neck, i told him pain was in upper back more he just didn't care pushed me out door to make another appointment
This patient was found on our computer upon entering the exam room. He said he had the right to because he paid for the MRIs. I responded that he didn't have the right because the computer had access to other patient's confidential medical information and imaging to which he had no right. That is why he wanted me to knock before entering apparently.
