Dr. Covington, while very knowledgable, permiates his clinic with a judgemental, condescending and sometimes cruel environment. This behavior is mimicked by his doctor underlings and nursing staff. Patients routinely come in taking pain meds which can lead to eradic behavior. I witnessed the staff frequently roiling their eyes at patient behavior and publically scolding them. Every day, at least one patient was berated to tears, again in a meeting with other patients present.
