 |  The staff at this office is very lazy and rude!!!!  |  show details
by Tammy Thomas (870)270-9765 on Mar 12th, 2013

Dr.B seems like a fairly decent guy he's a little hard to understand.. But his Staff are terrible!!!the nurses never return calls are so lazy they won't send a fax (1 min to fax)!!! They are about as cooperative as a rabid dog... They don't give a Care about what a patient needs.. When my dad is seen he pays a copayment and always has to come back to do his lab so they get that second copayment ($75.00-$150.00) he never knows what he has to pay or why!! I honestly think that the staff are ruining Dr.B's practice more than anything

I appreciate the feedback. There have been changes made in staffing at the office. Also recent Electronic records add another layer of difficulty to run a clinic. I and my staff are always trying to improve a patients experience. As far as copays, its inevitable since those are the rules by the insurance companies. If you want to get consistent results, they have to be fasting blood work. I suggest next time you make a morning appointment so your dad can have his lab work at the same appointment. Many patients do and I have absolutely no objection to that. Thank you

This dr has my sister on 16 different medications. Every time she goes he wants to add another medication. All her lab & conditions are out of control & he doesn't have a clue what to do!

I am sorry you feel that way. Your sister must have complicated medical conditions. To treat all of them appropriately, sometimes it takes several medications. You mentioned her lab and condition is out of control, so all the more reason there have to be frequent changes. I guarantee that given more time you will appreciate what I am doing and will get to the most optimal goal to improve your sisters health.
