He doesn’t listen. Waited 1.5 hours after scheduled appt. he came in picking food from his teeth. Ordered meds I have had bad reactions to and insists I take an injectible statin med when I have had bad reactions to every statin on the market and red yeast rice. After appt he appeared more interested in joking with staff.
