Verified Patient Reviews
A true professional and wealth of knowledge. They don't make doctors like this anymore.
As I waited in the lobby, other patients were telling me that I shouldn't expect to see the doctor on time, which I didn't. During my wait, the doctor and one of the nurses had an argument, after which the nurse punched the wall and tore down a cabinet door. I asked another patient waiting with me if this was typical, he said, "yes, but don't worry; they will all be friends tomorrow." When I was finally seen by the doctor, he was very unprofessional and critical of my tattoos. I went for a simple diagnosis of a rash, not to be lectured by an old man. Also, he asked me where I taught, and after telling him, he responded, "oh, you must teach a lot of blacks," and continued to make reference to African Americans as "the blacks." This was one of the worst experiences I've ever had, in general, almost surreal, like a bad sitcom.
Worst doctor experience EVER. I had to wait over an hour to finally get into the room with the physicians' assistant. (She was very pleasant, but completely overwhelmed as she was the only one running the office.) Once I finally got in there they were both highly unprofessional. They were in and out of the room, answering phone calls in the exam room, and shouting my personal information throughout the office in ear shot of the other patients. I went to see him for a bad cough I had for over 3 weeks and he completely ignored my concerns. Instead he pretty much attacked me about my personal life. For example, he had the nerve to tell me my college degree was useless, and I was single because I am a bit overweight! (Please note, I did not ask for any of this advice.) Long story short: I left hysterically crying never to return again!!
I think that he is the best dr that I have seen thus far!!!!
