    Patient Comments (1)
    in Brevard, NC |
    He seems in a hurry to get out of the room and fancies himself an amateur psychologist. Stated to me"Since you left this for last, it must not be important" and left the room . Well, I am a psychologist, and I left it until last so he would hear me out on the other minor issues without dismissing me. There has not been an initial appointment in the last 2 1/2 years that I did not get a phone call early in the morning telling me Dr Shaw was not feeling well and rescheduling me many days hence.
