He comes off as very condescending and arrogant. He might know what he’s doing, but he doesn’t have basic manners or concern for patients.

This doctor is really experienced. He understands the complications of COPD and ventilators. In an emergency you want him there with you but for follow-up..... I like knowing my doctor is competent. His bidside manner is the worse know to man kind. He treat nurses on the floor like crap. During procedures he is a different person. Boy he can be patronizing and insulting.
