Not communicative. Did not review test results throughly, if at all. Relies on others to communicate for him. Literally, he just walked out on two appointments. Rude and unprofessional. After 4 appointments, wearing a heart monitors for a week on two occasions, EKG’s and ECHO studies, he’s accomplished almost nothing to alleviate what we’ve now been told is a potentially serious heart condition by KU Med Center Specialist. Extremely dissatisfied with this doctor.
