Never had such a rude Dr. in 51 years!!! Literally went for second opinion as aibwas told by anither Sr I needed tripke fusion .. never evn looked at my films with me and said “ If you want to be a patient in my office I need a note from your primary care Dr that you will be MY patient” and. WALKED OUT of room!!!! The worst bedside manner ever... and I have seen MANY surgeons in my lifetime
