Doesn't Listen to Patient

The entire time I was describing my problem to Dr. Jacko, he stared at his laptop, typing furiously. He never looked up once, he never acknowledged anything I said, he never looked at me or asked any questions. For all I could tell, he was typing an email, instead of my comments. I had no idea how much he actually heard, or if he understood anything I was saying. When I had finished talking, he did a few very cursory tests, but never examined the area where the injury/pain was (and had never looked up from his laptop when I tried to show him where it was). Ultimately, his "diagnosis" had nothing to do with my problem, he ignored my attempt to redirect his attention to the location of my injury, and I decided not to go back.
