We left with a lot of questions, he was in a hurry and ready to leave the room. very quick to make a decision that we felt should have been explained in more detail and we should have talked about it. we will be seeking a 2nd opinion

I waited for a LONG time before finally seeing the doctor and when he finally came into the room the exam was over quickly.
