Not caring at all. Very cavalier attitude. Doesn't understand the concept of suffering and pain. Clearly interested in money

He is like a bull in a china shop. Very ADHD, which leads to him not being a good listener. He books 7 or more patients at the same time slot, then shows up very late, and uses the excuse that he lives in Philadelphia. He yells at people before surgery if you report him to office management. He's so disrespectful on so many levels, it's astounding. Many people I know will no longer go back to him. He keeps incorrect records, most likely due to rushed appointments and illegible notes on patients.
