FALLS SHORT

Dr. Adelaar falls short in the area of communication and explanation with his patients. He is insensitive to concerns and needs, as well as pessimistic towards extremely realistic goals. My experience was that he did not seem interested in listening to my concerns or discussing possible treatment options for my previous injury, whether surgical or non, to improve my quality of life. Rather, he did not seem at all empathetic in telling me my current status of recovery was as good as it was going to get and I should be grateful for that, which is absolutely not true at my age and I have not nearly exhausted all my options. His bedside manner was the worst I have experienced. While I appreciate a Physician who is realistic, no one benefits throughout their care from one who is disconnected, not understanding of and uninterested in your orthopedic issues, possible solutions and goals. I felt completely brushed off consulting this Doctor and could have skipped wasting my time with this referral. I came in optimistic, yet I left his office almost in tears. I will not be visiting Dr. Adelaar again as well as I will be disputing this visit with my insurance and visiting another more friendlier, interactive Orthopedic Doctor in the area, seeing as this visit was absolutely not helpful or pleasant in any way.
