Doctor was rude, arrogant and wouldn't answer the questions we asked without giving us a rash of trash talk, said he didn't have time then would blab on about how important he is. He would talk to our mom who couldn't speak as though we weren't in the room and as though we weren't there for her best interest. We are all easy going people, if we weren't concerned for our mom's health and possible poor care by him we would have all elected to leave at that moment. I have seen many doctors, but I've NEVER been treated so rudely. STAY AWAY from this doctor! We all disliked him. He had a very passive aggressive behavior, I think he believes it passes for a sense of humor, but doesn't. On the plus side he saw our mom quickly and he found polyps during the scope and removed them. His bedside manner with family trying to care for someone who can't speak for themselves was rude and arrogant. It was all about him.
