He's in a rush. Seemingly with every patient, as I can hear what's going on when he's in the room with other patients.

he didn't have a good bedside manner. he insinuated I didn't do the exercises he gave me (incorrect) he wouldn't let me have any PT and wouldn't refill a Rx, but wanted to see me again. I had seen his partner Dr Mayer (who was much better), but was told he didn't handle my new problem.
