Altoona pa |
Has a terrible bedside manner, spent less than 3 minutes with me, never asked if i had any questions or concerns, had to chase him down to ask 1 question. He didnt know my name, my history or my age when he walked in the door. Made me feel as though the health of myself and my unborn son were a waste of his time. He spent even less time if you can imagine with the patient in the room next to me. Then i heard him say to a nurse get them out as fast as possible.

Terrible bedside manner. Shame this guy is a physician at all let alone an OB/GYN... especially at a practice that requires you to see all of their physicians.
