regretfully Dr. Berglund displayed the worst bedside manners I've ever experienced in my 60 yrs of life bar none. Curt, impersonal, uncaring with zero empathy. the entire visit with him barely lasted 4 minutes after 50 minute wait. I'm easy to please and don't have high expectations so for me to say this takes a lot. And I'm a physician colleague. I really hope he just had a bad day and not his usual manners. happy to talk to someone if further information is needed
