Patient Comments (1)
Berea, KY |
Because he assumed the care of the other surgeon's patientsin his office, who had just resigned, he felt that he must not show any compassion or care to me. He was very rude, did not care that I had not had any progression in healing g, and insisted that since he is leaving in March 2017, and going to Seattle, that I should find care outside the practice......even though 2 doctors still remain. Obviously he has personal conflict, and now must inflict his bad attitude in patients....JERK
