No bed side manner, rude and dismissive

The doctor did not allow me to ask questions and was dismissive, he has a cut and dry manner and while I was in waiting area I heard him inquire multiple times if a patient had paid their co-payment or had insurance. He spoke to the office staff like they were ignorant and kept talking over the receptionist while they were on the phone while they were scheduling appointments. He also interrupted the staff several times while they were helping patients in the waiting area as if they were invisible. He talked over them and the office staff. I called him several times for my results and was forced to schedule a follow up to discuss them. I had my primary request the results and will not be going back to this rude man. I would not recommend this doctor.
