Was not prepared to see me upon entering, shuffling through papers/records for 5 minutes. Dr Bauknight was short, abrupt, and extremely tense for whatever reason without his ever previously meeting me or even before discussion of my case! Bad day? He would interrupt and ask questions about a conditions doctors should be familiar with, asking me to explain and expecting me to know medical terminology. Very stressful visit for a cardiologist!
