Patient Comments (1)
Goodlettsville, TN |
When entering the room he has his plan in mind and does not listen to the patient and their desires. He talks very fast and will ask 4 questions in a row and does not give you the time to answer the question. When we did try to explain he commented "Quit your whining", "I told you that the last time you were here" (there were 4 of us in the room and no one heard the information). When we ask if we could ask a question he commented, "Oh hell I am already 3 patients behind what is your question
