Very Disappointed in this Dr

Dr. Bass did not seemed concerned about my hearing issues at all. Very cold, indifferent Dr. Nurse had body odor really bad, receptionist had attitude - overall very bad experience.

He needs to retire.

He might be a good clinician and have 40+ years of experience, but has no bedside manner and only cares about teaching the student in the room, not caring for the patient's needs. I just hope he isn't doing surgeries on anyone...
