Horrible Doctor. Horrible experience. I second what everyone has said about his arrogant, condescending, demeaning, attitude. He stated "I'm a surgeon" to me as well when I was asking to go over my MRI I thought maybe he wanted me to stand up and clap for him or something. He didn't even look at me...more
