Besides the fact that I was asked to show up at 7:45 for an 8:00am appointment with a Dr. who was in ""our weekly staff meeting"" until 9:30am, by the time I was done with the place, that was the least obnoxious thing they'd done.
In a nutshell, everyone seemed to be put out that I was there, like I'd crashed a party or kept them from doing their job. Daniel K. Kim is a rude and extremely arrogant Dr. If you are (as I am) a womanwith a brain (I happen to be a Dr. myself) who points out to him, however politely, that you would prefer that he use real terminology to describe a procedure you're about to have, that you have had before, and that you know why you had it before and why you're having it again ... if you dare point out you would like to be addressed as an adult who may know a thing or two about one's own body, well, be prepared to watch his ego explode. When I try picturing him talking that way to a MALE adult, my brain just about explodes: it would never happen. He seemed to exert a lot of energy putting me in my ""place.""
The nurses wheeling me off to surgery told me ""it can be hard for us to do our job if the patient thinks they know too much."" That was not an apology; it meant I was supposed to shut up. I saw his face right before he put me under general anesthesia and I never saw him again. No post up check, no instructions, nothing. The nurse took my blood pressure, put a prescription in my hand, and sent me off.
Worst bedside manner I've ever encountered (and that is saying a LOT coming from me; I've been through the ringer). I think anesthesiologists pick their field because they have better people skills with patients who are unconscious.
Pros: They did the procedure I needed done
Cons: They were astonishingly rude and condescending
