Not willing to spend time with patient

Scheduled an appointment with this doctor two weeks in advance and upon finally meeting with them I was rushed through the entire appointment. His aide was hasty, and didn't properly do a manual blood pressure for vitals as she finished getting a "proper" blood pressure reading in less than three seconds after pumping up the cuff. She literally let the cuff instantly deflate and threw out healthy BP readings. Generally, I'd love to have healthy BP readings but I usually run high, which was one of my reasons for the visit. Yacoub "reassured" me that wherever I get my blood pressure done probably doesn't know what they're doing. I was also denied a test and from what I was told it was due to a lack of clinical notes on behalf of the doctor to justify the exam. This doctor was amazing when I was younger but doesn't care for his patients anymore. Overall, after planning the appointment two weeks in advance they spent about 10-minutes with me starting from the moment they took my credit card at the entrance until the moment I left the building.The only thing he has going for him is excellent bedside manners but that isn't enough to treat your health concerns.
