Poor bedside manner

Dr. Mc vicar was very condescending and rude. As a parent dealing with a sick child in the hospital, she is definitely not the doctor you would like to see. Fortunately she is not the only neurologist in this group of doctors and we will definitely see a different neurologist in the future. The younger doctors that were with Dr. Mc vicar were very courteous and made sure to answer all of my questions. I hope that Dr. Legge will not become jaded by working with her.
