Rather pawn off a patient rather than keeping his Hippocratic Oath: "I will remember that I do not treat a fever chart, a cancerous growth, but a sick human being, whose illness may affect the person's family and economic stability. My responsibility includes these related problems, if I am to care adequately for the sick. I will prevent disease whenever I can, for prevention is preferable to cure." If you are a patient you are a number, and if you require any effort he doesn't want you.

Had the worst experience with DR. "Bud" Robertson. My friend was admitted to hospital with pneumonia due to cancer.He left for vacation to return the following tuesday to see her.He did not.Our experience began really in first visit with him not believing she needed a pet scan,saying she would live to be an old lady.He thought scan was an unnecessary test.Later in the hospital she had pet scan the cancer had spread.She is now at Emory.They could not believe she not had pet scan
