Patient Comments (1)
in Bettendorf, IA |
I am glad this doctor retired. I never developed a relationship with him. How could I? He was in and out so fast. He dismissed the opinions of other doctors. I never felt he listened to me. He was impatient with the staff. Just not a very nice guy - or doctor.
