Patient | May 1, 2016

We had discussed surgery in the past. When I brought it up visit before last he acted like I was mistaken. On our last visit he brought it up again. When I asked what surgery would entail he was short and just said we would talk about it next visit.

He was a little dry & not very patient. Made me feel dumb.

We drive 2 1/2 hrs. every time we have an appointment and will continue to do so just to see Dr. Werkhaven.
