Arrogant, Insensitive, Inattentive to patient and family

He was arrogant, dismissive and disrespectful even to the other doctors involved in the case. I would never go to him again if I had a choice.

Did not work as a team with other doctors involved with the patient. Did what he wanted to do in spite of differing recommendations from other doctors. In my experience with this doctor, he was Arrogant and dismissive and, worst of all, did not think about the patient's problems.
