The doctor is all business and keeps the visit time to a minimum. If you are looking for any nurturing time and tolerance for lay questions, they were not available for me. Small talk of any kind was a non-starter as well. Surgeons need to assuage anxiety levels of patients. They are not foot doctors. They are going to cut you open.
