Patient Comments (1)
Dr. Clawson seemed too impersonal. His questions seemed like an interrogation. During my appointment he left me to go exam/speak with another patient. He left me for an inordinate amount of time, approximately 25 minutes. As he returned, I over heard the Dr. refer to me as, "the other guy". I took this as disrespectful. I was expecting more options for diagnostics, i.e., an MRI, it felt like he was writing me off. His demeanor, poor. His manner, cold.
