19/02/09 3 4 2 3 Dr. Shibuya doesn't like for patients to ask many questions. Gets very snippy when you question anything he says. Does not explain things clearly. He says things in a round about way, never seeming to commit to an idea. I came to him with a diagnosis from one doctor. He dismissed that diagnosis and said that I had something else. When the drugs he gave me didn't help he then said I had something else instead preceeding to give me some other medication that can cause cancer. What a quack!
