Morganton, NC |
Doesn't listen to what you're saying. Rudely assumed my weight and activity levels were the problem, when I've had the same issue over a decade, been skinny and active in that time. Did not feel heard. Repeated himself over and over, like I was incapable of understanding what he was saying....more
