Getting results after the procedure

As far as doing the procedure he is ok. But don't expect this doctor to get back with you on biopsy results. He promised to get back with me in 8 days. After a several calls and 5 weeks later I finally got it from a nurse verbally. I would look for a much more caring doctor and staff, and pass on this jerk.

Condescending

He is abrupt, arrogant, and condescending. He and his staff can be rude to deal with at times. I have waited an hour lying on an operating table waiting for this doctor to show up. I have also waited up to 55 minutes for office visits. I think he just doesn't care.
