Dr. A is obviously a brilliant physician. However, he's abrupt and has no bedside manner. When dealing with head and neck cancers, a physician who is kind and who listens is critical.

Abrupt, rude, no follow-up, uncaring. Arrogant and narcissistic. Obviously knows his field, but terrible bedside manner. Highly not recommended.
