, how he would behave,” one reporter said.When a recording on the doctor’s outburst was played to other medical personnel at the same hospital, they were in no way surprised.“We always get complaints about our doctors but when you have these doctors working under someone, who himself, does not know how to speak to people,Wholesale Jerseys
, then it is no surprise,” the doctor said.Another related, “He is the Head of Professional Services. At least he could have behaved in a more respectable manner.
