Appointment to discuss knee surgery.

Was very rude, acted like he was God. At one point he told me to do my knee surgery since I knew so much. Kept telling me we have to follow protocol even while we were looking at xrays of my knee that shows there is no cartilage there. He walked out on me. Very unprofessional.

Dr Doom

In my 65 years of life, I have never experienced a more insensitive, non-compassionate, impatient Dr!! I had hip surgery and when I asked for pain medication he said he doesn't GIVE OUT narcotics. He prescribed a medication that did nothing but make me tired. I told him once that I had a few questions and he said he only has time for one! The worst experience I've ever had with a Dr who should a least ACT like he cares. The worst bedside manner ever!!
