I knew this Dr. once, he was my cardiologist at one point, but due to insurance limitations I lost him, so I though, had an horrible reencounter with him at JFK, where he scolded me, berated me and stormed out of my room saying “I am wasting my time”. Horrible bedside manners, unrecognizable from our first experience 8 years ago. Very disappointed, he was very unprofessional.

Offered only platitudes, no real information, suggested with no basis in fact that patient with recent bowel surgery had peritonitis. Visited said patient in hospital every day, so will be billable hours, and seemed to be going through the motions.

This dr came into the hospital for my father. I waited all day. He DID come in but he saw my dad in RECOVERY from a procedure. He spoke to an 88 year old man coming out of anesthesia, no hearing aids in a room where family were not allowed. Dad asked him to go out and talk to his daughter - Dr. Gare said NO- the nurse can tell her. Dad has no idea what was said and we got to ask NO questions - TERRIBLE DOCTOR

This is NOT a compassionate doctor. Hence, I will NEVER recommend a doctor like him who tends to dwell on his mood and irritable attitude while dealing with patients. It is already bad enough that you are dealing with health issues. The last thing anybody need is a doctor that blame patients, rather than provide the care and compassion we all need when in distress. I have never seen a doctor walk out of patient's room while uttering the word goodbye with a tone. Unacceptable!!!
