My mother had breast cancer. He was the worst doctor....he was uncaring he was cold he was argumentative he was horrible. It was a really bad experience for my mother who died and for the rest of the family because of him. I have tape recordings of him arguing with me and not wanting to provide my mother with the best comfort possible for her end-of-life. She was only 63.
