Hes always ready to bolt out the door. always has an opinion about everything you ask for. He thinks his way is the best way. You hardly get a chance to voice your concerns..never has lab work from last visit readily available..Always feels like a pointless visit.

I didn't approve of the way theDr. acted when he found out i wason pain meds. I didn't go there with pain, it was fenale problems & the Dr. acted like he was embarrassed to talk about female problems. I think the P.A i seen the first time was better.

Rushed. Assumptions. Didnt get to speak. Disregarded my symptoms without trying to analyze. Strange.

Most terrible appt. I have ever had at Communicaare. He was running late by an hour. Barely came in and it felt like he was in a hurry. He had not read my file and I have provided extensive records. Iwas asked.why I needed my walker an indication that my file had not been reviewed. Why was I on a PAP program . why was I prescribed particular meds. When asked why he did not refill my gabapentin prescription when the phamacopia clearly states one should be reduced gradually from this medication. I also keep detailed records for my blood sugars...nlood pressure...oximeter rates he was not interestef in looking at any of these. He said he was only interested in my A1c. I had to adk for a full blood panel.as.I am on a lchf diet and was interested in cholesteral levels as well as potasium levels. I felt treated like I was ignorant. I am a teacher of special needs children by trade. In the past.I have never felt rushed or discounted at all. This guy acted hurried and disinterested. I will never see him again and would suggest no one else see him. I probably should have seen a vet and would have been happier.

I felt like I was in a low income clinic. The wait was too long and I had to remind them to collect my co-pay.

What kind of doctor dismisses the patient's concerns and says they don't know about female issues? I have always had family doctors prescribe birth control pills for menstral cycle symptoms. This was a complete waste of time and money.

I understand that this is a low income clinic but that should not imply patients are going be treated as a low priority. The entire appointment was rushed. This has been the second time it has been this way. The physicianis already out the door before I could even complete my thought. This is why people end up in emergency rooms, lack of adequate preventative care.

He was very nice and went over everything and asked me if I had any other questions, which I appreciated. I think we all get nervous going over Lab work and that kind of stuff and he made me feel at ease.
