Patient Comments (2)
Very personable He spent a half an hour with me explaining my prospective ear drum replacement surgery He answered all of my questions thoroughly and asked me to call if I had any more questions
He is not personable , he asked me to describe how I felt and my answer was met with a berating that I wasn't describing my symptom to his satisfaction, I've been a nurse for 27 years and have never experienced his level of ignorance for emotional intelligence and patient satisfaction
