Patient Comments (1)
in Seattle, wa |
Absolutely awful. I would not recommend him to any patient, friend, or family member. Not only is his bedside manner awful, I felt no empathy for my situation or comfort in what he stated was my diagnosis. The anecdotal jokes when asking for an eye patch, turned into "I can get you a mouth patch to prevent you from asking questions ,"was absurd. When people fall ill, the last thing they want to experience is sarcasim, and a "shut up, I'm the Doctor" attitude. Questions should be encouraged.
