Very busy practice. Tried calling a couple of times to schedule but the robot said there were 13 callers on hold.Next time it was 16 callers ahead of me. So I scheduled online. Once at the office I observed that everybody was very rushed. When they called me from the waiting room, I had trouble getting up from my chair due to back pain and the snarky nurse said to take my time because she gets paid by the hour. She needs to be reminded that her pay comes from patients (customers) like me. Their efficiency is great, but it seems like the staff might be a bit overstretched.

Went to Dr. Rider initially to get tested for strep throat instead of paying more for an urgent care facility. I was able to get an appointment same day through Zoc Doc and I didn't have a PCP anyway yet so I thought why not. A few months later I went back for symptoms of fatigue, dry mouth, and GI issues. He sent me to a Gastro for a colonoscopy. He also ordered an ultra sound of my liver. I was grateful and in agreeance for both suggestions. He had some labs done on me two weeks apart. Both showed high platelet counts. He thought the first high platelet count was due to an infection I had the first time, but didn't know on the second test. Mentioned something about having me tested a third time and if they were still high he'd send me to a hematologist. Colonoscopy good. Ultrasound unremarkable fatty liver. Radiologist suggested MRI. Nurse said Dr. didn't see a need for MRI or more labs but still wanted to see me back. Asked did he want to see me back if no more labs and no MRI and what about checking platelets again? Asked for Rider to call me. He didn't. Always had his nurse call me. She said oh yeah he did want to check your platelets again. I'm frustrated. I guess I just don't really get what a PCP does other than a physical and order labs. I was disappointed that he wouldn't call me back himself about why he didn't think I should have the MRI, but I'm not surprised. I know the day I called he had open appointments after I called because I had to cancel mine that very day and they left a message to reschedule for several time slots later in the same day. I don't believe he was too busy, but of course I don't know for sure. His nurse Stephanie is outstanding!!!! She gets right back to you and is very helpful. I am also very impressed with the phlebotomist (don't know her name) and a lady named Lupe. I will not be going back to Dr. Rider. I don't feel he took the time to really assess all of my symptoms and try to figure things out. I felt he too easily passed me off to specialists.

He listened, didnt over prescribe, was candid about his opinion in effectiveness of various treatments. Will go back, and that is saying something as i haven't had a PCP in 5 yrs.

Rather abrupt with answers. Felt like he was rushing through my first time meeting with him. At conclusion of visit I mentioned that even though I'd been doing more regular exercising for a little over a month recently but actually gained 2#. His only reply to me was don't eat out in restaurants. Quite an assumption on his part & a rather rude reply. Certainly not a very helpful answer. He didn't ask me any questions about my eating habits, which are pretty healthy by the way; lots of fruits/veggies and homemade soups, etc. No fast food and my husband & I only eat out 2-3 times month. Thus. I've decided on a different Dr.
