  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 40 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.

Very thorough. Excellent.

This was one of the most rude physicians I have ever encountered. He made it quite clear that he had no interest in treating me, even though he found the problem, which was very clear on the x-ray and was treatable. His attitude was arrogant, he made comments that were insulting, and every time I think about it I get upset all over again. I am not going to give details because I would prefer that he have no idea who complained. If he treated me this way, I am sure he treats others similarly. I think this man is in the wrong line of work. No matter how knowledgeable he is, if he can't stand to be around his patients he should go into research and leave hands-on practice to physicians who actually want patient contact. The PA who was assisting him/learning from him was slightly more personable, and did make a couple of attempts to be nice, but it was obvious that she was taking her cues from him. The doctor seemed a bit condescending to her, as well.
