He spends literally only minutes with me. Didnt ask me any questions. When I began to share my symptoms, concerns, cut me off and told me not to worry about it. I brought my wife along to my second appt and when she asks only one question, which she did have more, he completely disregarded it. He is not giving me answers or explaining diagnosis or tests.
