His communication was abrupt at times, did not listen well to patient or family needs and concerns when asking detailed questions about my care he seemed defensive in his responses and at times uncaring. I believe these problems with communication did effect my overall care and outcomes, as a result I decided to change physicians. Since changing, my clinical presentation has improved as well as my confidence about my care. There's a difference when a physician talks at you vs with you.
