Patient Comments (2)
Washington, DC |
His attitude & demeanor shouted that he no longer wants to work and is burned out. There were 4 interruptions during my initial consultation. It's unusual for a doctor to give 30 minute appointments for new patients, but he does. There was a nine minute phone call in my presence from a hospital about one of his patients and a tech or someone came in 3 separate times to have the Dr. sign forms (not for me). My total interaction time without interruptions was 14 minutes. Bad bedside manners.
