The first visit felt rushed. However follow-up has been amazing. I trust him & feel he has my best interest at heart.

Rather brusque. I felt he should have explained why the prescription cream I requested would perhaps do more harm than good.

I felt like he moved very quickly. I felt rushed, and that he didn't care about my questions or input. Given this is major surgery, this was a bit stressful. I was convinced he's a great surgeon, but not that he wanted to listen to my input on the procedure. I never had the opportunity (or trusted the doctor enough) to voice my concerns.

Very straight to the point, explained everything & answered all the questions I had.

Provider brushed off my concerns about surgical results, saying that "we've done thousands of these surgeries" and he'd "do whatever (I) wanted, but it'll look bad." Provider seemed very rushed.
