My friend told me about her experience with this doctor. He was extremely rude bordering on hateful. She was disappointed and upset with his attitude and will be seeking another doctor.

This man is my father's cardiologist. He is absolutely the rudest, least compassionate doctor I've EVER met. My first issue came the night he put a pacemaker in my dad. He had a consultation with my mom and me, and he gave us bad news. We had concerns we needed addressed, but in the middle of my mom asking a question he cut her off and said "I've been here since 6:00 am, I'm going to call it a day". He then got up and walked out. Since then, he has continued a trend of rudeness. DO NOT RECOMMEND
