Literally Zero Time Interacting with Me

I was referred to Dr. Smith by a friend and went to see him for a possible back surgery. I was first examined by a med-student or junior physician (not sure which) who gave me a diagnosis of his own, then left to get Dr. Smith. A few moments later, and without Dr. Smith ever having touched me, checking my reflexes, or asking me questions about my situation, he immediately provided me a diagnosis. (Yes, it was the same opinion as the med student.) He's probably an excellent physician but there was so little effort to get to understand my situation from me - the patient - I couldn't recommend him.
