Provider would not discuss pros & cons of both types of surgery. He consistently repeated "what can I help you with today" or "what questions can I answer". Yet, I never felt my questions were answered.

Dr. O'Malley simply has no bedside manners at all. I had several questions that he answered while he back was to me and he was typing, however, he answered them as if I was asking the least important questions in the world and that they were an Inconvenience to him. I keep reminding myself that he is an excellent surgeon and hopefully I won't see him again after this.

Tried to ask him a question and he cut me off before I could get my thought out fully. Didn't even make eye contact with me as he entered the room or talked to me.[...] Feel very discouraged and he has to still perform the surgery.

This care provider is very confident in what he does but does not have any kind of bedside manner. Questions asked were answered by repeating what he already said as if we didn't understand the first time instead of listening to the question and explaining or giving more information. He seems to want to provide as little and perfunctory information as possible rather than help patient understand the situation or problem. I Think he does a good job at what he does but he does not seem to enjoy or have patience talking to his patients. I would recommend him for his skill but certainly not for any kind of bedside manner.
