Absolutely disgusting. Would constantly interject and give his explanations without letting me finish. Then when I tried to get back on track he would get upset over the fact that I wasn't letting HIM finish. Can't believe someone like this is allowed to practice.

Lovely gentlemen. I felt he was able to explain well the process and course of action. Although he did say I would have an MRI within a couple of days, this did not happen. I suppose this is down to other hospital processes and not his incompetence.
