The guy is a pervert and habitually sexually harasses nurses and medical staff. The only reason he hasn't been sanctioned is because for years he was the only person who did vascular surgery in our small rural community.

Wonderful surgeon, horrible office staff. The office staff is incredibly rude, gives false information then denies it, and makes the overall trip a nightmare. I wish I could rate the office staff (especially Kristy, the front desk receptionist) as less than 1 star.
