Bedside manner

I saw Dr. wichman for a little over a year and never once got a smile out of him. In turn, I always felt uncomfortable and like I was a bother to be there. He did laugh once and it was at me for suggesting I wanted to be *tested* for cancer as my younger sister passed away from it. He laughed at th thought and I felt really dumb. I would not recommend him if you have the choice. To be fair, he was fast, in and out of the room in ten minutes as to keep in time with appointments. I was never left waiting in a room.
