Cold fish. Didn't come across the exam room to even look at my varicosity up close. Didn't inspire confidence. If I proceed with treatment, already wondering how to have another surgeon do it.

Horrible bedside manner, very rude,doesn't listen, does not have patience with the elderly, didn't use gloves during exam, would love to know his infection rate on surgery. Ended up going to Indianapolis with severe infection and almost died....
