Patient Comments (2)
Arlington, VA |
I have found Dr. McConnell to be rude and inattentive. He has no qualms about interrupting in the middle of sentences, and I didn't really get the sense he was listening. After over a half hour of waiting, I had at most two to three minutes of interaction with him, during which I didn't even get to describe my symptoms fully. Members of his staff are perfectly pleasant, and the women at the front desk are very helpful, but I'd recommend finding a different doctor if possible.
Walkersville, MD |
This doctor has the worst bed side manner I have ever seen from a physician. He doesn't explain what he is treating properly. Spends 5 minutes or less in the room with you. He told me I was a ticking time bomb and needed to get surgery right away. Got a 2nd opinion and I did not even need to get surgery! I strongly advise do not see him.
