This doctor is crazy. He is abusive, rushed and worst of all, can't diagnose. When you bring in severe symptoms which clearly need testing, he diagnoses based on OLD films and doesn't want to hear about symptoms you've developed that prompted you to make an appt. Very dismissive and disrespectful of a frightened patient who is in pain.
