Patient Reviews ?
I have to agree that his staff is lacking in knowledge and experience when it comes to running Dr Davis' office. When I first started he had a very competent staff. You never can get a hold of anyone. I have been seeing him for three years. I have had to pay for missed appts because of emergencies with my aged parents. My father passed Nov 2012 and appts. I missed were for him. I do not understand patients being penalized for emergencies. I have always called the office when appts were missed. Not easy to reason with. Always a problem with my meds.
I like Dr Davis. He's very kind and concerned about his patients. Admittedly, the wait is some times longer than I like. But overall I have no complaints about him as a physician.
This doctor has wonderful credentials but does not live up to them. You will wait 2-3 hours and he doesn't listen to you. He will prescribe a lot of medications that do nothing to help your problem.
I worked with a therapist that referred clients to Dr. Davis for med. Management. Dr. Davis over prescribes medications and I have even heard of him writing prescriptions for his clients family members without ever meeting them. He randomly closed down his office and disappeared for a few months with NO NOTICE to his clients. The therapist I worked for refused to refer clients after finding out what kind of "Dr." Sturart Davis is. USE EXTREME CAUTION WHEN DEALING WITH THIS PHYSICIAN.
I've been reading reviews and i feel total opposite. Dr.Davis is a great Dr..i have tried looking for psychiatrist to accurately diagnosed my depression and other issues..HE HAS DONE THAT. As fair as the wait time, it's lengthy but well worth it BC he takes his time with his patients. His staff was professional and courteous to Me and my husband. Can't wait for my followup
Although Dr. Davis is good as a doctor, the office practices are extremely poor. His assistants fail to schedule appointments accurately. He is very difficult to contact when needed. They charge when you need a refill and request over the phone. They charge exorbitant fees if you miss an appointment and don't care if it is legitimate or if you called ahead. They are extremely poor at returning calls.
If you are looking to solve your underlying issues, look elsewhere. He takes a meds-only philosophy.
He is the first doctor to help me realize that my illness does not define me. I am so glad I took a chance and went to see him. He does care about me and wants me to get better. He will care about you too!
Do Not bother to make an appointment you will be wasting your momey and money seems to be the main concern. When I first started seeing him he had a competent staff. The good ones left. The staff now is very incompetent. Miss an appointment and you will pay the $110.00 and for Gods sake do not try to get a refill. The refill will cost you an additional $25.00. you think you have problems when you go to Dr.Davis.....just wait you will indeed have more problems dealing with him and his office.
My medical physician sent me to him to make sure I was on the correct med. I had been laid off and divorced in three months prior and apparently, to Davis, I was overly anxious. Anyway, I expressed concern about his suggestion that I TRIPLE my meds starting that day. I didn't understand why you would go 3x it before even trying 2x it - or hey, giving the situation a little more time. Plus, having worked for medical pharm company in the IP area and getting a degree in psychology AND THE FACT THAT I READ THE PAPER ONCE IN A WHILE :) - I also expressed a common concern about taking any medications at all and that tripling them off the bat seemed extreme. He quickly threw it back at me that, "Well, I would expect that from an anxious person." Huh? And I'm sitting there thinking of the Martin Short SNL character, "Is it me or is it him?" The idea that a patient giving the situation some independent thought was unacceptable -- WAS UNACCPETABLE. Oh, and he's the RX "spokesman" he told me - like that would make it oookkkaaayyyyy. That would actually be one of those red flags any normal person might consider Doc.
I should have known what I was in for when I saw the staff wearing t-shirts and jeans... and with lackadaisical attitudes to match... and when the laptop information form made me read advertisements for drugs I don't need or want.The doctor saw another patient during my timeslot, and I was rescheduled to a different time (which I couldn't make) without my knowledge or consent.This place is a joke... DO NOT GO!
I arrived for my evaluation appointment a half hour early. When my appointment time came, Dr. Davis saw another patient in my slot instead. I had to get back to work, so I had to leave.I will not be returning. The other reviewers are right... steer clear! This is not a professionally run office.
I have been seeing Dr. Davis for nearly a year and every time I tell myself I am going to find a new doctor. His office is apparently run by high school drop-outs with no job training. Almost every time I have had to call his office I am told I will called back later. No one ever calls. It takes about three days worth of multiple phone calls to get anything done. Going to the office in person is no better. They keep you waiting over a hour and then tell you they can`t help you. The wait time for appointments is unacceptable- I was once kept waiting for four hours. Dr. Davis himself seems competent until you try to get your prescriptions. He does not know how to properly write a prescription so a pharmacy will fill it. Every time he gives me a paper prescription I cringe because I know the pharmacy won`t accept it and calls to his office to try and get a corrected prescription will go unanswered. On several occasions his office has charged me for doing paperwork that never gets done.
We had missed an appointment and when we needed a refil for our childs medication, the office wanted $110 for the missed visit before they called in the refil. Dr. Davis had the nerve to take the phone from his secretary while my wife was on the phone with her, and commense to insult my wife then tell her we should not be out of our son's medication yet. He did not know how much meds he gave us. Also the medication our child takes says that the user can experience withdraw if they suddenly stop using. Dr. Davis was more concerned with his $110 than the welfare of our child. Some peope might say he is a great doctor because the meds he perscribed helped them. Sure he will get some diagosis correct, but from what I saw he lacks the patience to really understand the patient and see where they need help. Thats what we all want right? It just takes someone who will go the extra mile. On our follow up visit, he took literally about 5 minutes with us. This was after we waited 35 minutes past our appointment time. I reccomend looking for another doctor.
I was a first time patient. I waited 2 hours to see him. He saw me for 10 minutes in those 10 minutes he was rude, insulted me, made derogatory comments about my doctor who happens to be outstanding amoung her peers and patients alike. Wanted to change my medications ( I take 2) that have worked great for 15 years, to several medications that I do not need. Actually tried to provoke me in front of his staff,my family and other patients in the waiting area.I did not give him the satisfaction he would have derived from that.I have never encountered such unprofessional behavior in the medical field.
I found Dr. Davis to be arrogant know-it-all. He was interested in making quick diagnoses and giving me lots of medications (3 prescriptions, one of which I was already taking and he wanted to increase the dosage from 50mg to 250mg. Do Dr.'s get a kick-back from pharmacuetical companies??) I felt as though he loved to hear himself talk and gets his "high" from being condescending to his patients. He even talked badly about his ex-wife to me and told me her psychological short-comings! I would not recommend him to anyone. Additionally I had a noon appointment. Didn't get called back until 1.40 and didn't see the Dr. til after 2!
Very unprofessional with large turn-over in office staff which causes problems with insurance and calls being returned. Waits of 2 hours or more are not uncommon. The last straw came when Dr. Davis confronted me about an unpaid visit and demanded payment. What doctor involves himself in insurance payments when he has a full office staff My insurance company has provided proof of payment for that visit, and the check was even cashed. I am still awaiting my refund from Dr. Davis` office. Time for a new doctor...
Thanks to Dr. Davis, my anxiety and stress level is under control. I have stopped overeating and cut the number of cigarettes smoked per day tremendously. I couldnt have done it without his help!
i felt disrespected by him. he would ask questions and then he cut me off before i could finish. if i tried to share my opinion on different treatment options, he would make some snide remark basically saying that he is the doctor and knows everything, and i know nothing. i am not a phd, but i have studied psychology in higher education, and know a good bit about it. but regardless of that, i think i have a right to have opinions about that drugs he tries to put me on. i shared my opinions respectfully, and only received rudeness in response. he is one of those doctors that is on a huge ego trip. if you ask me, he doesnt care about his patients, he just wants to put them on anti depressants that cause dependency, so that he is guaranteed our continued business. he has no interest in actually helping people. it was disappointing and frustrating. i left with more anxiety then i showed up with. i am also pretty sure he was making things up. he said such ridiculous things that only a moron would believe he contradicted himself so many times. not to mention the 2 hour wait.
Wait wait wait! always 2 or 3 appointments behind and then when you see him all he does is talk and push pills .. likes to hear self talk.
Dr. Davis has helped me tremendously. I highly recommend him. He's a incredibly personable and a very intelligent guy.
I have seen Dr. Davis several times. He has helped me tremendously. He`s very knowledgeable about eating disosers as well as ADHD treatments. There is usually a wait about 30 mins to see him. But he is worth the wait and won`t rush you inout of his office like most physicians.
