Absolutely no bedside manor. Told my mother that she had a year to live. I said she is getting radiation, doesn't that kill it? He said, yes but it will just move other places, about a year and no more, in a rude bothered manor. My mother hadn't even asked how long she had to live. Thanks to him, playing God, like he apparently thinks he is, she died in her heart that day. She was physically dead six weeks later. I thought the doctors were supposed to "first, do no harm"!
