Obviously this physician had a problem with me. He would not sit during the appointment. He was condescending and rude. Did not want to deal with me. Preferred I deal with my primary care. Waited over an hour in the exams room. The physician never examined me or asked me any of the questions referenced in his notes and summary of visit. Totally not what I expected from a clinic person.
