Patient Comments (1)
Decatur, GA |
He never listened to what I was saying. He was simply sitting there looking through me listening for "buzz" words instead of the complete story. My situation has now persisted for weeks and would be eradicated by now had he simply listened in the beginning. I don't think he has a clear grasp of the effects that certain prescriptions have on patients, his approach is nearly robotic and quite frankly I'd be surprised if he's remembered any of his patients' name! This man is void of empathy.
