Patient Comments (1)
Poughkeepsie, NY |
He's unfairly (and in my case, inaccurately) judgemental and he has been very rude and short tempered with me several times. Usually he isn't there or there is a long wait to be seen. He acts like he would rather be anywhere else other than seeing patients with pain management needs, his behavior/demeanor always makes me feel like I'm wasting his time.
