Year of the Rooster? This Doctor is Cocky!!

The most memorable thing about this doctor is that he is condescending. He is so sure of his own opinion, that he has no problem telling the patient that the pain they are feeling is not typical and that it must be in their head. And this is without doing any other tests, but an x-ray, then proceeded to bend the patient's thumb in a painful way because he is already convinced that his opinion is above the patient's pain. It's no wonder the last review said this doctor is a low class Chinese doctor. Perhaps, he's Chinese, but that's not what makes him a negative doctor. His conceited, bedside is terrible.
