 |  A NEGLECTFUL, UNCARING DOCTOR WITH ZERO CAPACITY OF EMPATHY!  |  show details
Jan 25th, 2012

I would never recommend this Dr. to anyone. The first few years I went to this Dr. I thought he was great, even wonderful. Unfortunately his bedside manner, level of care, unpredictable uncaring behavior, and disconnectedness from patients started to become noticable over the past year, and has not only become worse, it has become neglectful and dangerous to any patients with serious health conditions. If you are looking for a Dr. strictly for minor coughs, colds, the flu, sports physicals or a band-aide station Dr.- Then he would probably be okay. On the contrary of you have a serious or potentially serious health condition he is simply one of the worst possible candidates. He is an excellent example of a Dr. who now is in it only for money and prestige. He has far too many patients...appointments always come with a long wait time, sometimes exceeding an hour, that also includes a uncomfortable 'cold' environment with uncaring, rude and unfriendly staff from start to finish. Frequently ignores and dismisses serious medical symptoms, and tries to push antidepressants at most appointments when there is no basis for them..this is a common complaint amongst many other current and previous patients I know. His disregard for patients serious medical complants is not only neglectful and unethical but dangerous. He has a reputation of not only ignoring patients health complaints but also minimizing potentially serious health issues that should be referred on to a specialist. Additionally he is scheduled to see 2-3 patients at the same time every 15 minutes...I have witnessed this at every appointment, which always leads to long wait times and him being in and out of the room several times...which leads to most appointments taking an average of 1 1/2 to 2 hours from appointment time to checkout. Needless to say appointments are frustrating and often degrading.

Dr. House is wonderful! He goes above and beyond to help his patients. He will explore all options to make sure you are getting the care that is needed, and he will not just dismiss your concerns as some doctors will do.
