Doctor was not patient and didn't spend enough time with me/my child. His partner Dr. Yee is the better doctor to see.

I was recommended to this doctor by my neighbor whose opinion I highly respect. My 11 year old son was starting school and we needed an appointment for a physical and to fill out a quick form required by his school. Upon entrance we were greeted by a young receptionist who did not know much of anything. From what my co-pay was to what copies of paperwork she needed to retain for my son's records. Dr.Eden had no bed side manner. His attitude toward my son was dismissive and plain old grumpy. He walked into the exam room and said "Take your clothes off!" as if he were in prison. The receptionist saw this from outside and had to close the door. All the doctor kept referring to was my son being overweight "not obese" as the dr. said. I explained it may be a side effect of the many medications my son takes for ADHD. I began to tell him about the medications and that I wanted to get blood work done to make sure his regulatory systems were in order being that he has gained the weight in the last year. He again did not care. I am not exaggerating when I say he did not want to do more than take his blood pressure, his weight and look down his throat. He did not listen to my concerns nor did he want to fill out the form "I don't have time for this form." he said and he was rushing us out. I told him the importance of the form and he relented and took us to his back office. He fired questions at us as if he were under interrogation to gain some sort of picture as to the state of my son's health. When I again approached the subject of wanting blood work done he was dismissive and stated it was unnecessary. This doctor has many fans and is admired for his books on pediatrics so I don't understand why he was the polar opposite of what we expected. Maybe his notoriety has made him so busy he doesn't need or has time for new patients. Our family will never return to his office. On a positive note the ONLY positive note we did not wait more than a couple of minutes before being seen.
