He gets angry very easily. He does not believe in anything that he did not learn in medical school 30 years ago. He believes there is only one way to do anything and that is the only way he will do it. He has a cliff notes for doctors that he uses to decide what drug to prescribe for what symptoms. He doesn't practice medicine, he practices Pharmacy. He will not accept any input from his patients. If you try to give him relevant information he puts you down for it and act as if you are stupid

He treats One symptom at a time, with one prescription at a time,per visit. And don't get a chance to list all your symptoms before he whips out his prescription pad and write the prescription for the first symptom that you mentioned. He is not interested in finding out the root cause of your illness but only in masking your symptoms. He also has a hair-trigger temper. I have heard him shouting at his staff and at other patients if they said something that went against what he believes. It

He has always listened to my questions and comments. He is very knowledgeable. He takes time to explain any diagnosis.

Hair trigger temper. You had better not ask questions or object to anything. You don't get to have any input into decisions about your own health care. Doesn't try to find out what's wrong with you - just keeps prescribing medications to mask the symptoms. Most made me worse. He has one set of rules that he applies to every patient. Symptom X always gets treated with drug X, whether it works for you or not. Will not accept information from patients, thinks he knows everything possible already.
