Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Some uncertainties about the best solutions for some medical issues. Ex.- I indicated a tremor problem in my hands; no definite advice or referral was given, it was sort of left open-ended.

He dismissed my concerns, told me not to worry and was a very bad listener. I had to explain several times and he really didn't seem to understand.

My appt was for 9:00 am. I was asked to be there 15 min prior. I did not see the doctor until around 10:10. I was ready to leave. I think that it is very inconsiderate to keep anyone waiting for that long of time! This was a visit just for prescription update and I was very put off by the inconvenience!

He does not do even minor surgery like lancing a finger nail infection...he sent me to the urgent care clinic. That is my only issue. I've never had a doctor that didn't do such minor procedures.

01/31/2016
I always feel that the physician is half hearing what I say and is in a hurry to make decisions and/or ask me what I want. What I want is some opinion on my ailment or problem and optional resolution. Not asking what I want or what I want to do.
