I will not score the doctor due to the unpleasant beginning of our meeting. He has impeccable scores from other patients so I would presume he is an excellent doctor. Update: your survey does not allow me to leave the score blank. I stand by my statements on this survey. I will score a 10 with the caveat that this is only because I must enter a number and I do believe he is a highly competent doctor due to the recommendation by Froedtert.

Dr. Wayne is very knowledgeable and highly skilled. That's why I would recommend him to others. However, he often leaves me with the feeling that he is in a rush and trying to get through his schedule. I've had Dr. Wayne for 8 years and 2 surgeries. While he is always pleasant and answers my questions, it is not often that he makes me feel like I am a patient with real human concerns and anxiety. Dr. Wayne is very efficient with our use of time and he never leaves me to only the resident to see. But since I have been with Dr. Wayne for so long I have also gone through A LOT of residents. I am not dissatisfied about the quality of care or his ability to address/treat the physical/biological aspect of my cancer. I just get the sense that I am never the priority for the 8-10 minutes I get with him and that instead he he has 100 other things he needs to get done that day.
