I was left with the impression that he seems to prefer only those who know nothing about health or conditions they have, and do not wish to discuss treatment plan and/or testing options. I did not feel as though being an advocate for my health, discussing accurate info about my health, or getting clarification for things was an option with him. The visit seemed to go okay at first, but he came off a little disinterested and a bit unwilling to truly discuss things in a way that considered my preferences for my care. He did not seem comfortable with the level of knowledge I have of existing conditions I'm already aware of, or of what options may be available for symptoms I experience that I would like to discuss and look into. He tried to blame his mistakes on "policy" that apparently doesn't even exist, and didn't show much competence in areas that would matter most to me (topmost being pre-existing nerve damage causing a chronic pain issue he acknowledged knowing about, but set off during the exam by touching the affected area directly rather than avoiding it.. I spent the entire rest of my afternoon in pain because of it). By the end, I felt he was untrustworthy, manipulative, and dishonest. Frankly, I left completely disgusted that I'd even let him examine me at all, and honestly humiliated that I'd discussed very personal health concerns with someone that very obviously didn't deserve the trust I put in him. Had I known he would act the way he did by the end of it, I wouldn't have.

Dr. Ernst actually explains and takes the time to answer my questions. My last doctor in daleville was horrible and acted like they were too busy and I should just take the medicine. I'm so happy to see Dr. Ernst again. He's the best.

I love Dr. Ernst's approach. He took the time to explain why the medicine he was recommending was the best for me when I didn't really agree at first. After his explanations, I understood why and am a much happier person. I do not like taking medicines and had he not explained what he did I probably wouldn't have taken them. Thanks Dr. Ernst. I can't imagine having a better doctor!
