He appears to be prim donna. Not very impressed. Definitely suffers from God syndrome.
My patients would not characterize me as a prima donna with a God syndrome. I tried looking for any Todd's" in the period before June 9th, and couldn't find any. If you have indeed been a patient of mine, I regret you have this impression of me.
in Brooklyn, NY |
Very poor attitude and rushed through my visit. All he was doing was yelling at his staff and projecting his anger about something to me and other people. He tried very hard to steer me to another pharmacy for my sensipar medication.
Sorry I projected a "very poor attitude and rushed through" your visit. "steering you to another pharmacy for your sensipar medication" also doesn't sound like something I do, because I have no allegiance to any particular pharmacy (there's no secondary gain on my part). Finally, "yelling at my staff" (I only have one front desk person, not multiple staff members) doesn't sound like me, either. You sure you have the right doc.
