This MD didn't listen to me when I had questions regarding my treatment. He cut me off and said that nothing would help me, leaving me thinking I was hopeless. Later, when I went on my own to get a counselor and they said they had greatly appreciated my openness and willingness to listen to them he changed his mind about me. But he left me feeling very poorly about myself and hopeless most of the time I was with him. It isn't good to leave patients in this field (any field but especially this field) feeling that they are hopeless. Later when I went to another MD in the Madison area they said that I had been given a lot more medications than I needed and that what had been given me could hurt my heart. They told me to go to a regular MD and have my heart checked out. I haven't done it yet, and I won't make a bid deal out of it if my heart has been influenced by the drugs because I don't want to be part of anything that will hurt this person but I really do wish this MD had been that caring about me and my health as I am being about him and his life. I get the impression that he makes up his mind about people based on a first Impression and doesn't take into account that people change and that he has to be aware of that to be fair to people.

This man didn't care nor take the the time to listen to my problems, and only cared about my history. Then he booted me out the door and didn't wanna see me again. I wanted to punch him in the face the way he spoke to me with so much disrespect for me. This man is only in it for the money.
