What an unpleasant experience it has been with this doctor while my father is in ICU at Mercy. A real condensening, patronizing being. I don't understand how someone can choose a profession that demands such high levels of human emotion (specifically kindness) especially in critical times of need, yet be complete void of this trait. Why did he even become a doctor? That's like an elementary teacher choosing to teach, yet hates children. DO NOT Recommend him!!! No bedside manners!
