Patient Comments (2)
in Kansas City, MO |
He is the most arrogant and rude individual I have had the misfortune to meet. He was more concerned about getting his dictation completed in the exam room than talking to me. He actually held his hand up like a crossing guard at me when I asked him a question. He finally said he guessed he could do surgery on me, but doubted it would help much. To which I asked why would I have surgery if he doubted it would help. His response was, "Because that's what I do. You came to me."
