Very rude and errogant Doctor.

Dr. Uhl was always in a rush. We waited for about 40mins beyond our scheduled time, to see him for about 5min. He may know his stuff well. But he was very impatient when we asked questions.

He was incredibly kind, listened respectfully with full attention. He took time to explain his thoughts and asked me if I had further questions. I felt very well cared for.

Dr. Ugly may know his stuff but he is very rude. His secretaries take forever to send scripts to other hospitals. He seems like a doctor who is only concerned about how much money he makes and not the well-being of his patients which really should be his first priority.
