      Our son needed circumcision revision, was referred to this hospital having him as the Doctor to carry out the procedure. first meeting with him, we brushed it off as maybe he might be having a bad day, but we were wrong, all our meeting with him after, had been emotionally draining. He treat us like a "bullet had been put to his head" to attend to us, showing body language like we were banch of idiots he had to deal with. Very uncomfortable expirence we will do anything to avoid in the future
