Patient

He was derogatory and rude. He needs to take some sort of classes in empathy and concern for his patients. In addition, his staff was impersonal and pre-occupied and rude. Regardless of age. However the elderly especially need to be treated with respect and kindness. Listening skills are absent in the Dr. and Staff.
