When we saw Dr. Fern, he was very disinterested and unwilling to listen to our concerns, didn't explain anything to us, just wanted us to agree to the procedure immediately. Very bad bedside manner.

Dr Fern seems rather disinterested in listening and helping. There was no follow through with promised treatment.
