Doctor is all business, usually will not do much to greet and acknowledge a human patient is in front of him or that a parent is present. This visit was considered an improvement simply because he showed some level of friendliness and took a few minutes to speak( way too rapidly) to us concerning my son's eyes. He does not present as a jerk or arrogant, he just doesn't take time or seem to be interested in any questions we might have. I believe cattle get more attention at a feed lot than we did.
