Knowledgeable, but he appears uncaring. Perhaps he is too busy.

After having a scope I was prescribed medicine. The medicine caused me to have severe abdominal pain. When I went back into the office and told them this they basically said well too bad that's all we can do for you. I will not go back to them.
