The following is my opinion: He seemed to be on a mission to create an atmosphere of fear in my daughter and us and to "sell" the therapy he provided at his center. It all seemed to be about this overweight physician with the Rolex on and his views, not the patient. He talked down to her. It seemed like they were annoyed to be help her. He stood up to leave while I was still asking questions. It was obvious that he wanted to be somewhere else. They didn't tell me very much about all of her condition and diagnosis until I had to drag it out of him or tell me about the gamut of total treatment possibilities, which he never did. I still felt like I had to do my own research. He was far to arrogant and had terrible "bedside manner". When discussing the appropriateness of Completion Lymph Node Dissection with him (reliable studies show and experts say there are no improved outcomes for patients undergoing this procedure) he stated that she didn't need those lymph nodes and had to undergo the surgery. I was hoping to see someone that considered my daughter's concerns more important than always having an answer. When I asked for more options going forward he tried to intimidate me by accused me of allowing my daughter to die if my hope for other options were considered (I have 3 witnesses).
