Like a poorly written Twilight Zone episode

I didn't care for The Surgeon. I thought the premise sounded very interesting, but the writing fell flat for me. It didn't seem natural or realistic, nor did it seem like the author was intentionally being over the top to create a particular mood. It was often unclear or confusing, though there is a "twist" in the end that may mean we're meant to forgive any unrealistic or over the top exchanges/descriptions? There were times when I couldn't tell if it's that the writing was truly that confusing or if the narrator just wasn't emphasizing things correctly or giving pause to let certain things land. I don't know- I just couldn't connect with it. Luckily, it was incredibly short.
