Told him I hadn't eaten in 6 days because I couldn't swallow and he essentially told me it was no big deal. Completely ignored me when I told him my swallowing seemed to be connected to back pain. He seemed in a rush to get me out of their so he just had his assistant schedule some tests with another department of renown. Seemed like he couldn't get me out of his office fast enough. I would not recommend him.
