Rude and uncaring

I had seen this doctor for my back. My wife had a sore elbow and I went with her to see him. He barely even greeted her. She's overweight and we wondered if that was why he was so rude, because I had remembered being satisfied with him when I saw him for my back. He barely spoke and we had to force him to answer our questions. That being said, we love the staff there, and the PT department also. He gave her a cortisone shot, which was what we wanted, but it didn't work, and we don't know if it's because he didn't administer it properly or because it wasn't a good treatment option for the problem. He did mention that she has arthritis in that elbow. He literally spent less than 10 minutes in the room with us, including the time it took to review the X-rays and administer the shot.
