Dismissive and rude. It was my very first time meeting with this doctor, and it will certainly be my last. He asked me who sent me to his office, I told him I came on my own. He immediately said tome “Oh, so Dr. Google?” I came to him with legitimate concerns. Graves’ disease runs in my family, as well as thyroid cancer. I’d lost 20 pounds without trying in less than 3 months, and no matter what I do I cannot gain. I thought it was possible between that, and various other aligning symptoms, that it was a possibility that I could have it too. He was cutting me off as I was trying to explain my symptoms, which I think is extremely rude. Anyways, I’ve worked in healthcare for years. I am by no means uneducated on the topic. He goes on to explain what tests he will order, seemingly annoyed? It was very strange. Then he told me he’d have me set up a patient portal and I’d be able to see my results there, followed by a, “not that you’ll know what they mean, but you can see them.” I have 2 degrees around this and have worked in a hospital for years in various roles. Not only is that insulting to say that to me, it would be insulting to say to ANY patient. Also, any patient can see if the labs are abnormal. It will literally say on the sheet if it’s out of range, high or low. I don’t understand how a physician can be so condescending to someone that comes to him with legitimate concerns. I’m vulnerable in that situation, and he’s being condescending. I will not see this doctor again after my blood test results come in.

Doctor spent a lot of time with me but I didn’t feel like he truly listens or understands concerns. He is a bit pedantic utilizing an “expert” mentality without evaluating evidence brought by the patient. Overall, he is nice and friendly but he could learn to listen more.

I had a terrible experience. Abrasive from the get-go, did not seem to listen to what I was saying or care about my problems. Dismissed me without trying to come up with solutions. Probably the least pleasant bedside manner I have ever experienced

He seems insensitive to what I'm going through (several months of fertility treatments) and suggested that I consider adopting a child instead. I go to him for medication, not life advice. Also, I always wait at least 30 minutes to seehim and today the person drawing my blood didn't even close the door when doing so.

I enjoyed this experience. I was called before I even finished the initial paperwork. Once in the room, the doctor was there immediately after the nurse left. From start to finish (with blood work), it took all of 20 minutes. Ididn't feel rushed either. he took his time explaining everything to me. Highly recommended.
