Patient Comments (1)
in Reno, NV |
Does not talk to you about issues you are having, especially if it involves pain management. Openly states that he doesn't want to end up like Dr. Rand. Interrupts when you are asking questions. Rarely looks you in the eye, very rude which I could get past if he answered questions and listened. I expressed concern re: severe pain I am having (4 wks after accident/surgery), he shrugged and said uh huh. I had to reach out to another medical professional for my answers.
