Cavalier attitude bordered on being unprofessional

Did not explain issues or interpret results. Took all of 5 minutes and told me what I already knew

Bedside Manner Fail

He may be a good surgeon, but his "people" approach leaves much to be desired. He needs to be able to read people better. His demeanor was one of a comedian, flippant and I'd almost have to say absurd. He came off as too casual, indifferent and a bit condescending.
