As a doctor he was o.k. however, the older woman at the desk was just plain nasty to deal with. On one visit she put me in the room for close to four hours! I was in pain and when I asked her for some water she got mad & told me to "get back in the room" & "keep the door shut!" I told her I had another appointment with someone at M.G.H., she seemed to not care. The last time I was in the room over two hours, I never came back.
