Felt Dr. Dafford's manner was a bit impersonal; my question about the mental used in repairing my patella was met with an indifferent answer. Being proactive is not always met with positive results. She may be a great surgeon but understanding and some compassion would go along way! Bedside manner seems to be overlooked by many medical professionals these days.
