Very rude! Would not recommend if you want to be treated like a person should be treated.

He talks to you more like you on trial and he is the attorney telling you to answer only yes or no. Told me not to look at things on line if I had questions to ask him. Would like to know when it would have been safe to. I know the very first time I saw him I did not like him. When I did have a very important question in regards to finding out that with my condition I could go into a coma...As I went to ask he received a phone call, told me he had to leave and ask the question next time I see him. I really cannot even to explain to you just how rude he is. I can tell you that I left there so upset. I just don't get how someone like him can be working in the healthcare field. He may know his stuff, but needs some counseling on how to treat people. I think with his knowledge he should be sharing just what your condition is and you should not have to ask all the questions. I know I could not think with how rude he was of questions that I may have had. I was shocked to see the first several comments on here with 5 stars and compliments. What they were saying were far from the same person that I have seen. Did someone do those to help him or did they see him in a good mood? The lady that did the scheduling was nice. I commented to her on how rude he was because I needed to vent on how upset he made me and when doing so another lady in the office over heard me and she came over and attacked me telling me if that I was not happy that I could go else where. Must have been his Wife or something. I was so upset and frustrated when I left there I wanted to cry. Would not recommend if you want to be treated like a person should be treated.
