Went through in detail about my current concerns, regarding an accident that I was involved in. The steps he specified matched up identically with my GP, that I by chance had an appointment with on the same day.

I am confident about Dr. Macken's medical knowledge, but he does not seem to care about the patients at all. He seemed rushed and like he wanted to leave, and did not really listen to me.
