I know this practitioner as a clinical Supervisor. I have seen him Interact with patients as well and he is extremely arrogant and patronizing. Part of the problem may be his rather shocking low level of intelligence and failure to grasp abstract and higher level concepts. I could be wrong, but Iit did appear he was threatened by me or else simply took a dislike to me for no apparent reason and without justification. I, on the other hand, have ample evidence for my assertions. Stay away.
