Somewhat talented but off putting

I believe this guy has developed a real skill for cortisone spine injections. However, he is not informative and is absolutely humorless. He does;t want to explain anything, like going over an MRI. It's all get them and get them out. He is about as compassionate as a pickle. If none of these things matter to you, he's your guy.
