Patient Comments (1)
Oakmont, PA |
This physician needs to retire. He was condescending, unwilling to listen to the concerns of his patient responding with curt answers. He spent 5 minutes or less with me &, in my opinion, behaved in a most rude & arrogant manner. 2nd opinion appointment was made within 10 minutes of leaving office. Disappointed, especially because the office staff was wonderful!
