Patient Comments (2)
in Chattanooga, TN |
He always wants you to listen to him and does not want to listen to you. He acts like he is listening, but he is not, and when he tells you you need to exercise and you try to as much as you can, he just keeps saying you need to do more. Dont't ask him how much exercise he just because he will fire you and tell you to get out of his office like he did me. He doesn't have privileges at Memorial, because he told me he would not work for Three Whores on the Mountain.
