Dr. Scales seems not to like to explain procedures he recommends, gives you abrupt answers, and his personality is cool to midland. It seems as though Dr. Scales thinks he is the only quality doctor in San Antonio, and seems full of himself. His personal staff are also cool to sarcastic. I won't be using Dr. Scales again!
