Patient Comments (2)
Pass Christian, MS |
He may be a descent physician, but he is either insensitive or oblivious to his patients as persons or LGBTQ. I had a colonoscopy for preventive screening, and during his consult with my husband following the procedure, he deliberately misgendered me in spite of being corrected by his nurse and my husband several times. He did the procedure and it was obvious I am a cis male. I am in a same-sex marriage, and it was offensive being repeatedly being referred to as "she" or "her."
