Traffic Cop - not a MD

Staff was increadably rude and not the least bit helpful. After a terrible accident and a 5 day instnsive care/hospital stay my husband was sent here for follow up. The records which the hospital faxed over three days before the appointment were sitting in an "In" basket - not in the chart. When he retreived them the DR barely glanced at them. He did not take any vitals nor look at sutures or X-rays. He simply handed out refereals, collected his copay and sent us on our way. He did not care about my husband's health and well being, he simpy directed us elsewhere and collected his fee.

I have seen him twice and the only thing he suggested was Tylenol. I could have saved my money and figured that my self.
