    Dr Tradonsky was very rude and abrupt during the visit. When he examined my hip (injury location) he yanked my skirt up to my waist without telling me what he was going to do! A professional would have informed me of what was needed (adjusting clothing) or asked me to do it myself. He had the door to the exam room WIDE open with 3 people that walked down the hall during the time I was on the exam table with my undergarments on full display. He made NO attempt to protect my modesty or PRIVACY!
