BEDSIDE MANNER NEEDS IMPROVEMENT

I was recently injured on the job incurring injuries to my back, neck and knee. Dr. Suarez was recommende to me by a friend that previously used him. The incident was very devasting to me as I did not understand the extent of my injuries and the excruciating pain I was in. I do not like the fact that Dr. Suarez does not face me when talking to me, his back is to me. I had to literally ask him to please look at me when I am talking to him. I was also upset with the fact that I requested written reports of the MRI results, which were sent to me in the mail. Dr. Suarez did not initiate a consultation to explain the report in "laymen terms" as I did not understand the medical terminology. I had to call to request that consultation and he took 1 week to get back to me by phone. However, he seems to have a good reputation as an Orthopedic Specialist.
