Not conversational- explains everything with a quiet robotic voice - very little eye contact - thorough in patient history-

He was not at all kind, came in with an attitude. He was difficult to understand, did not explain anything or ask relevant questions. Did not seem interested in curing me, seemed to want me to take my oxygen, go home and die.
