I was referred to him to fix an issue. Initially he seemed ok, if not rushed. When the surgery failed to fix the issue, he did the surgery again, which also failed. When he stated he wanted to do a radical surgery that would put my life on hold I wanted to discuss other options and he got very angry that I was questioning his recommendation (I am a nurse, not an uninformed healthcare consumer) and he stated that I would "just have to deal with it then." Needless to say I went elsewhere.
