Extremely arrogant and became defensive when questions were asked. He gave me a prognosis after a surgical procedure with extreme lack of sensitivity. Even though I had extreme side effects from the medicine which was prescribed, he continued to insist if I wanted to prolong my life I should continue to take it. When I refused, he indicated that if I did not trust his judgement another physician might better fit my needs. I got 2 other opinions. Both other cardiologists disagreed with his assessment and my medicine was switched. I feel I was treated very much like a number with dollar signs rather than a person actively involved in my health care. Under the care of other cardiologists I am doing fine with a good quality of life.
