AHOLE, Late, Arrogant, Unorganzied, Talked not a Listener, Did not ask 1 question about my history, total waste of time

This guy is the worst MD I have ever seen. 1.5 hours late, no electronic medical records, talked over me the entire appointment, questioned why I was there, had not reviewed my records, stopped the appointment and refused to move on until he fixed his cellphone. He was a total AHOLE and I would not ever recommend him. He is arrogant and uninterested all the while with a smile on his face.

Hard to get in to see, but worth it

Dr. Kussman is held in very high regard by all of my other physicians and considered one of the top ID docs in Dallas. He has extensive knowledge of infectious diseases and a great interpersonal/bedside manner. I've never felt rushed when I've seen him, and he's very good at answering my questions at a level that I can understand.
