Did not read history, or listen to symptoms described. Did not explain thought process or perspective on diagnostic tests or treatment options. Dismissive.

He knew I had blockage in my LAD. Put me on non-reversible blood thinners, started procedure to insert stent, then suddenly stopped, said nothing I can do - you need open heart surgery and walked out of the cath lab. Then he said that there was a malfunction and we couldn’t get a recording of the cath procedure. I personally think he knocked some plaque loose as I was much worse after the procedure. Worst doctor ever. Almost killed me.
