competent but rude

Dr. Wax is clearly an experienced doctor and diagnostician. However, he is impatient, impersonal, disinterested. One gets the feeling you could suffer signs of a heart attack and he wouldn't suggest you see a cardiologist. Just wants to treat your acne (or whatever) and get you out.

Dr. Wax is totaly obnoxious. He is very impatient and only sees each patient for 5 minutes and if you ahve any questions he insists that you make another appointment because he has an office full of patients. He books a patient every 5 minutes and that is the truth. Also, he gets very nasty at times and irritable. I would not recommend him to anybody.
