Patient Reviews ?
I have a two boy which I have had to go see Dr Jordan for I have never been in such a uncomfortable position as a parent to special-needs child I have one with Autisum and one with ADHD I was told that if I could not handle my child I should give him up for adoption or lock I'm in a room so that he could not get out! When my son with Autisum began to cry the Dr called him a liar and a cry baby no Dr should ever taunt a child. He also informed in that I was in the wrong as a parent because when my children fight I separate them he said I should just let them hit each other and who cares if they hurt each other because it's not my place to stop them as I will not be around as when they are adults, I believe that why I should teach them not to hit well they are little then this crazy man goes on to say my son walks on his toes because he is flat foot and he don't eat solids because he spoild and at 7 wears a diaper because that's normal in AZ!! I normally don't do this but I don't want any other mother to go through what I've had to endure he is by far one of the rudest Dr ever I would not ever refer any of my enemies let alone my friends to this place I am taking us to the medical board I believe his license should be took him he's very unprofessional no one should ever have to suffer the way I have after this appointment.
I am surprised by the overwhelming negativity of the reviews I read here as I didn't have that experience with him at all. He is abrupt and to the point, but he did stop and listen every time I wanted to say something. There is nothing about what he said or observed about my child that seemed off----on the contrary it was perceptive and accurate. He was polite to me, to my child and helpful making sure I had contact numbers, handouts on my stated concerns.....
I cant.even begin to.say.how bad I.feel for anyone who even.has.to.taken their child to.this piece of work. Doesn't care to spend anytime or.let the parent talk its his way or no.way now.wonder why hes not married.. he told us.to.stick our son in.a room.where he.couldnt move.for a half hour hes 3 and if.he.cries so.hard he passes out than owell dont help him or acknowledge.him.when my.son.was crazy in his office I was trying to.control him to.help and.dr jordan.didnt like it one bit. He told me its okay fory.son.to.hit every one older than him but not me his.mom.or younge than.him.. umm wtf teally u idiot. He needs to be evaluated. End of story
I usually do not complain and I never write anything in Dr reviews, but this doctor was something else. Now I know why there is a 2-3 year wait to see a developmental pediatrician at a well known place in the valley and one l month wait for Dr. Tim Jordan. Have you ever heard of the phrase, âyou get what you pay forâ This doctor is a QUACK! When I left the office, I was totally speechless . OK, starting from the beginning. My son got diagnosed with Autism and ADHD from a company in the east valley. Finally, my son got DDD long term services. So I had to switch to a place in Phoenix. I am having trouble with billing with that place so I decided to find a new dr and get away from them. I decided to try Dr. Jordan office, even though my friend warned me that he does not have bedside manners. I took a gamble and to see for my self. What a UNDER statement. First of all, It is hard to reach any one in the office . I had to call about 5-7 times that day before any one answered the phone. And they never made a courtesy call to remind my son about the appointment. First experience I had with them. I made an appointment with them in June. A week later, they called and told me that Dr. Jordan decided to take that day off, so we made another appointment. A week later, it happen to me again. They called and I had to change appointments. It happen 3 times. When we went into the office to see Dr. Jordan, he asked me what was wrong with my son. I said that he has Autism, ADHD, and 3-4 other diagnosis. He asked me what do you want from me? I was puzzled with that question. I I told him that I wanted to switch to another Dr because of billing problems with his present Dr's office . He said again, what do you want me to do? The day before I spent Â½ a day to get all the evaluations and all the reports together from all the other doctors, schools, and state, When I gave him the paperwork, he skimmed through one set of papers from a doctor in Scottsdale, and he asked me if I knew that they diagnosed my son with Autism. I was shocked, I just told him 4 minutes ago about that. OMG. Then he gave me most of the papers back to me and only made copies of couple of documents, and said he did not want to rest. He asked me several questions about my son. When I tried to answer them, he cut me off and wouldn't let me answer. Sometimes he said, â I know, I know, I knowâ. How does he know If I haven't told him what my answer is. After 3-4 questions and âanswersâ, he told me when my son did not behave, to LOCK him up in a room by himself for 30 minutes or more. In my book, that is child abuse. He then tested my son using pictures from this dilapidated book (5 minutes total). He knew my son couldn't talk. He started to ask my son questions which he would have had to verbally answer. My mother was with me with this appointment. She told my son, to sign for the doctor. Dr. Jordan jumped on my mom and told her to be quiet. My mom told him that my son can't talk. Dr. Jordan said if he can't talk, and then the answer will be wrong. 1 minute later, Dr. Jordan told my son that he can sign (3-4 minutes total). He asked me to fill out a questionnaire, and he never looked at it after I completed it. He was not thorough, and never asked questions about my sons milestones or all his problems. After 8 minutes of asking him IQ questions and a "balloon" test, he told me that my son does not have Autism. I asked why he Is not talking. DR told me that there is nothing matter with him but, he needs practice talking. He also told me that I need to practice talking. I had a lot of other concerns, but I could not get a word in, he kept on cutting me off and did not want to hear what I what I had to say. This time I was a little bit more aggressive and told him 1-2 things before he cut me off, and he said that his nutritionist will handle those problems. My son was making some noises while the dr was talking to me, so he got frustrated and kicked my mom and my son out of the office. . He told me that no follow up appointment is needed. I could not believe my ears, my son previous doctors always had us come back every 3-4 months to check things and also with the previous doctors, they asked hundreds of questions about my son, and did 2-3 hours test on my son for several days. This Doctor is a quack!!! As much I hate fighting with the other place over billing problems, I guess I have to stay with them. At least they have good customer service, and thorough with my son and was caring and want to best for my son and gave us some hints and suggestions. Dr. Jordan never gave me a suggestion or anything that made sense. All he did was snap at us and bad, bad service. I suggest never going to see this man.
We saw "doctor" Jordan because our 6 year old son was showing delays in several areas such as fine and gross motor skills, speech, and reading. Our son also has very low muscle tone and sloughs his feet while walking to the point that he wears off the bottoms of his shoes after only a few months. He is very uncoordinated and tires easily. His arms and hands tire easily while writing and his speech is often very slurred. "Doctor" Jordan's diagnosis: "He needs orthotics for his shoes. There is nothing else wrong." This guys is crazy!!! A few weeks later I received a second bill from his office for "Extensive Developmental Testing". The only "test" that he did with our son was asking him to take off his shoes and walk from one corner of the room to the other. This "doctor" is a complete waste of time and money!!! Back to square one...
my daugther was diagnosed with ADHD by a psquiatric and probably dislexya she has alot of problems with reading because she does backwards and same with numbers and the doctor only told me she has problems with lenguage because her first lenguage is spanish that was his diagnosis he even said she doesn't have ADHD even she was diagnosed by two different psquiatrics
I am a child and family therapist specializing in Autism and developmental delays . I took my daughter for an official evaluation for autism . I provided a current IEP that qualifies my daughter for special education under autism and speech and language delay. Our appointment was scheduled for 4pm and we did not see the Dr. Until 5:20pm. Dr Jordan asked me why we were seeking a Eval. When I began to express my concerns he would reply "and this is relevant because?" Dr Jordan concluded that my daughter doesn't want to be bothered with people and she and I have very different personalities and that why she has problems. He did not use any type of normative testing. The testing I provided clearly stated she has high functioning autism. He stated that she has an exceptionally high IQ. real professionals we know that an IQ of 86 is not exceptionally high but in the low average range. This Dr needs to have his license reviewed. I am angry I paid $350 cash for an un ethical evaluation. What is sad is he is one of the only developmental pediatrician that accept AHCCCS and Arizona's most vunrable children are forced to seek his sub standard services. The dr.'s and therapist in my clinic have all heard horror stories about DR Jordan. They were interested to see if I would corroborate our patients horror stories about there experiences at Dr. Jordan's office. This place is a disaster. Dr Jordan is rude, un professional and ill informed in the area of autism. Unless your child is nonverbal and rocking on the floor covering his ears this doctor is not skilled enough to diagnosis autism.
Today we had an appointment with Dr. Timothy Jordan for our two kids with autism. I was scared to death after reading all the awful online reviews and comments from the people in our autism support group. Maybe people are to UPTIGHT these days. He was a good doctor, he cared about our kids. He did an evaluation for our kids, and did his job well. I read so many bad reports that I thought I would see doctor Frankenstein. But I saw a man that cared about people. Dr Jordan accepted our State insurance. AHCCS. He was the only DR that would accept AHCCS, Do you know why he was the only DR who accepts AHCCS? Because he cares more about people that MONEY. I called around for other doctors....they were nice and welcoming until the found out we had AHCCS, they would then become cold and say we can't help you. The reason other doctors will not accept AHCCS insurance is because they pay a lot less than the can bill for non state insurance. I don't like being treated like white trash just because I am low income. DR Jordan has respect for us! Dr Jordan office was full of kids when we were their today. Most looked like us.....many were low income. I think many people had a problem with the directness of him. Dr Jordan is a man that speaks directly and honestly....I like that! Don't be afraid to go to DR Jordan he is a treasure. He diagnosed my son and I in about 5 minutes....he is an expert with autism spectrum. I respect this Doctor for helping low income families when other doctor will not! There are more important thing in this life than money. 5 Stars for doctor Jordan!
Total disgrace to the hippocratic oath, took 10 minutes to diagnose my son with a stupid "look he's not paying attention to the balloon test". Yet my son has a longer attention span than this quack, the guy can't go one second without rudely interrupting with his psycho babble. Coming from a family of physicians (my father is a Pediatrician, my mother is a OBGYN, every single one of my cousins are surgeons) I can honestly say that I've never seen such an unprofessional medical professional. Because of his neglect we have to go to a REAL developmental pediatrician (sadly my father is not a developmental pediatrician) to get a real diagnosis. If you want to throw your money down the drain and enjoy having to literally restrain yourself from maiming him then by all means, please, subject yourself to Tim W. Jordan.
This "doctor" is very rude and needs to retire or die. Absolutely no manners and he apparently forgot what it means to be cordial. I would not recommend him unless you like to be treated like a turd and shown the exit door.
He was a smug son of a B*T@H! He was a rude, arrogant, ignorant so called physician for children, who would not let me talk, says my daughter is on autism spectrum but will not give her a diagnosis, but rather says she has selective mutism. He took a freakin 10 minute test of my daughter and determined that she doesn't have autism but has been treated for autism for over 2 years and all the forms of therapy and other forms of treatment has helped. He did not ask my husband and I about her symptoms, her treatments, did not review our answers to his questionnaire, but based his diagnosis off a stupid ten minute questionnaire that he did with my daughter. DO NOT GO TO THIS MAN!!!! I left angry that he is wanting to affect my child's future by eliminating her services through the state and the school system. HE NEEDS TO BE REPORTED, but the funny thing is that he is the only doctor who takes AHCCCS leading me to believe that he is wanting to remove the caseload for AHCCCS since they are having financial difficulties. MY DAUGHTER NEEDS HELP, and this A@@HOLE wants to prevent that. I will not let that happen. I am my daughter's advocate and she will always be taken care of.
My experience was very similar to many listed here. Dr. Jordan spent approximately 20 minutes with my son before telling me he was just like his dad (pointing at my boyfriend who is not his father BTW) He went on further to say that my son is lazy and unmotivated and we should just take him out of special ed (he's in middle school and has been in SE since preschool) and let him fail. My son has some sort of problem I'm not sure what it is but we needed a diagnosis from a doctor as the school psychologist suspected autism or ADD. He would listen to nothing I said. I left his office in tears. When I got the report (2 months later after calling the office twice to request it) I had to laugh because he had said that I brought him because he was in special ed but the school wanted to place him in mainstream classes(completely untrue, he didn't listen to what I was telling him obviously) and that I wanted him kept in special ed because he can't remember to turn in his homework. He also recommended that I take a less active role in helping with his schoolwork. ( I found that hilarious because as a single mom with a full time job and six kids you can imagine how much time and inclination I have to do my son's homework with him to a point that could be considered excessive. If anything the opposite is true). (By the way when I mentioned to his caseworker at school what the recommendation was, she said she can't agree with putting him in mainsteam classes. I still need to take him to get a diagnosis but now look at all the time that has been wasted. It's frustrating because my insurance covers very little of anything like this and we far from any providers) The other issue is that when I got my EOB from my insurance there was a charge on there for a neurological exam not covered by my co-payment for the office appointment and that I am responsible for. My son does have a seizure disorder (documented by EEG exams) and is on meds but at no time during the appointment was a neuro exam performed. There are many rude adjectives that I would love to use to describe this doctor but I think it's more important to warn others. In my opinion he needs to be investigated by the state board. In fact that is my next step. As a doctor he took an oath to first do no harm...I think he has forgotten that and he should not be passing himself off as a specialist in a field where the consequences of a wrong diagnosis can have very far reaching effects. It is hard enough when you have a child with problems, you should not be subjected to the disrepect that was displayed by this man. When I read of other people leaving his office in tears that makes me angry and I feel that something needs to be done about this person.
before you go to this guy. My experience was similar to the majority of the reviews. AND, I work at a school where many of the children have been taken to him because they were able to get in quickly. Our resource teacher said she has never seen so many cases of "autism" in preschool before. And recently, a first grader came back from him with some crazy stories as well. With NO help for his obvious lack of attentiveness and ability to concentrate for the smallest amount of time. When I took my daughter to see him, she was in high school and was a little freaked out by him. We just needed an update to her evaluation. At the end of all his "tests" (that he pulled out of his drawers one by one, some of them falling apart,) he didn't make a diagnosis on the form I brought from the school. I looked at it and told him he needed to make a diagnosis. He threw his hands in the air and said "what do you want me to write?!" I couldn't believe what I was seeing, but told him, "ADD" and so he wrote it. I knew at that point, our time and money had been wasted and it was a big joke. He seems to avoid ADHD cases like the plague. PEOPLE, do you know WHY he is so easy to get an appointment with and other places have such a long wait??? Because the story is getting out about him. I too wish there was a way to get this man out of practice, but I don't know what to do. It is a crime that he takes money from people who think he is a professional. PLEASE, save your child and yourselves. Go somewhere else. I know it's difficult to find somewhere to go for help, but it's worth researching and waiting. TRUST ME.
My son has a learning disabilty and when he speaks it is very hard to understand 90% of what he is saying. He has stuggled with this problem for over 12yrs, so our primary doctor wanted him to have a developmental evaluation to identfy and diagnosis what the problem was. I brought in documentation from our prior doctors, teachers and therapists... MD Jordan didnt bother to review the document nor asked what were stated in the documents. Instead, he used a simple algorithm tool and concluded that my son had a learning disabilty, but he was not able to diagnosis. WHAT A COMPLETE WASTE of my and my son's time, patience and hope because we were left with the same questions and problems that were hoping to find answers to.
No diagnosis, although my son clearly has social issues. gave the stupid picture test, had him stuff blocks into the correct shapes, looks at my wife and I as if we were stupid and told us flat out he is the way he is. Deal with it. he even went so far as to tell us "One of you two was the same way when you were little, thats where he gets it." My son is adopted. This guy is a moron.
He was so rude! He wouldn't let me talk and kept cutting me off by saying I don't want to hear it! He laughed everytime my son made a mistake or couldn't do something. He had my son take off his shoes and put them back on, when my son couldn't do it he yelled at him twice saying just stop just stop I'm even getting tired of watching you! I pretty much ran out of his office and cried all the way home! I can't believe someone that works with kids would act like that.
MY EXPERIENCE WITH DOCTOR JORDAN WAS ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE! I WILL START BY SAYING THE REASON WHY OUR FAMILY CHOSE THIS DOCTOR FOR OUR TWO YEAR OLD SON WAS BECAUSE IT WAS THE SHORTEST ON THE WAITING LIST FOR A DEVELOPMENTAL PEDIATRICIAN. (ALL OTHERS WERE A YEAR TO A YEAR AND A HALF WAIT, HIS WAS 3 MONTHS, NOW I SEE WHY!) WHEN WE ARRIVED TO THE OFFICE I CANT SAY I HAD A BAD EXPERIENCE WITH THE STAFF OTHER THAN THEY SEEMED TO BE SOMEWHAT UNPROFESSIONAL. WHEN MEETING DOC JORDAN,HE WAS VERY SHORT WITH US AND HAD AN EXTREMELY RUDE ATTITUDE. HE PROCEEDED TO DO A COUPLE OF "TESTS" WITH MY SON WHICH ALL LASTED ABOUT 30 SEC EACH. THEN AFTER SPENDING TEN, YES TEN MINUTES WITH HIM, HE SAID HE HAD AUTISM. I THEN ASKED, "WELL WHAT TYPE OF AUTISM? IVE READ THAT THERE IS A SPECTRUM WITH MANY TYPES OF AUTISM" (NOT TO MENTION THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME I GOT A COMPLETE SENTENCE OUT IN FRONT OF THIS MAN, HE INTERRUPTED ME EVERY TIME I SPOKE AND DEMANDED I ONLY ANSWER HIM WITH YES OR NO.. NO ELABORATIONS) HE THEN LAUGHED AND SAID TO ME, "WELL ARE YOU A DOCTOR?! THERE ISNT ANY (AND IN A MOCKING VOICE) TYPE OF AUTISM. NOW IF YOU WOULD LIKE YOU CAN PLAY DOCTOR AND FEEL FREE TO CREATE A DIAGNOSIS FOR YOUR SON AND ILL HEAR YOU OUT." I WAS COMPLETELY STUNNED AND SAID "NO... IM NOT.." BEFORE I WAS INTERRUPTED ONCE AGAIN AND TOLD: "YOURE SON JUST ISNT LIKE OTHER KIDS AND AUTISM FITS HIM... NOW, HE MAY OR MAY NOT BE AUTISTIC.. BUT THATS WHAT IM GOING TO WRITE DOWN." I KEPT TRYING TO TALK AND HE KEPT RAMBLING WITH NONSENSE UNTIL MY HUSBAND (WHO HAD BEEN BITING HIS TONGUE THE WHOLE TIME DUE TO MY DIRTY LOOKS TOWARDS HIM MIND YOU) SAID "CAN YOU JUST LISTEN TO HER?!?!" HE THEN APOLOGIZED SARCASTICALLY AND TOLD ME TO GO AHEAD... WHILE WRITING THE ENTIRE TIME I WAS TALKING. I ASKED WHAT TO DO WHEN HES THROWING TANTRUMS... I FEEL HELPLESS... HE THEN SAID "YOU NEED TO LOCK HIM IN THE ROOM WITH PILLOWS AND BLANKETS SO HE CANT HURT HIMSELF (MY SON BANGS HIS HEAD NONSTOP WHEN UPSET) FOR AS LONG AS IT TAKES... 30 MINUTES TO FIVE HOURS IF THATS WHAT IT TAKES..AND LET HIM CRY IT OUT. OTHERWISE YOU WILL HAVE NO PEACE IN YOUR HOME AND YOU WILL LOSE IT TOO" WHEN THE VISIT WAS OVER, I HAD LEFT IN TEARS AND HE SAID HE WOULD SEE US IN SIX MONTHS AND WE TOLD HIM NO WAY! THIS IS THE MOST ARROGANT, INCONSIDERATE, UNETHICAL, AND UNPROFESSIONAL MAN I HAVE EVER MET IN MY LIFE!!! EVERY PARENT, AND THERAPIST I HAVE TALKED TO, AND I DO MEAN EVERY SINGLE ONE HAS EITHER TOLD ME THE SAME THING OR HEARD THE SAME THING! HE SHOULD NOT HAVE A LICENSE TO WORK WITH CHILDREN, LET ALONE SPECIAL NEEDS! I AM LOOKING INTO EVERY WAY POSSIBLE TO GET HIS LICENSE REVOKED AND SEE TO IT HE CANT EVER DO THIS TO ANOTHER FAMILY! PLEASE TAKE MY WORD, AND READ OTHER REVIEWS ON HIM FOR YOURSELF, AND NEVER EVER TAKE YOUR CHILD TO THIS POOR EXCUSE FOR A DOCTOR!!!!!!!!
Diagonsed my son with Autism and a year later removed the diagonsis cause of eye contact. Uncaring, rude and I was in tears both during the appointment and a good hour after due to the lack of proffesionalism
Do not go to this man for any developmental concerns with your child. His not certified as a developmental pediatrician in the state of Arizona. He is not a specialist. Has never done an internship or fellowship for developmental disability or behavioral children. It only shows he has an INTEREST in developmental behavioral. Hopefully you'll trust your child somebody that has more than just an interest. Attempted to diagnose my grandson, states in his reports Failure to thrive, but never mentions it to the mother (I know I was there). This Dr. will hang you out to dry 1st chance he gets. My grandson was in the hospital when we were informed that Dr. Jordan was considering dropping us because it was nothing more he could do. So my grandson a total 5 times and never did order my grandson stander. Don't believe me, please look at link 4 his medical license. http://www.azmd.gov/glsuiteweb/clients/azbom/Public/Profile.aspx?entID=1628167&licID=233681&licType=1
My son got diagnosed with PDD-NOS in May 2011. It was recommended for him to get further testing when he turned 5 1/2 years old. The pediatrician reffered me to DR Timothy Jordan. My appt was @ 3:00pm. My son did not see him until 3:30. He spent 10 mins asking my husband questions about my son. He was rude, inattentive and did not once read the pages of paperwork I brought from other board certified psychologists. He quickly flipped through a book with pictures asking my son to match the items. He gave my son less than 5 seconds to answer then turned he page. By 3:43pm he turned to my husband and said, "you son is not autistic nor does he have PDD-NOS. He scored high on my picture book test. I will send you my report. My son went to his first appt last year and the psychologist spent 4 hours with him doing tests and social interaction test settings with him. She diagnosed him with PDD-NOS. He spent less than 10 minutes and dismissed my son as "normal". DO NOT go to this "doctor". He is not reliable and all he is worried about is getting paid. He is not worried about helping children within the Autism spectrum get the help and attention they need.I filed a complaint with AZ Medical Board and several other agencies.
thisI took my son to see Dr.Jordan for developmental concerns.I was very unpleased with him an his services,he is VERY RUDE,UNPATIENT TO KIDS WHO REQUIRE TONS OF PATIENCE,DOES NOT CARE MUCH ABOUT his profession.I as the mother know my child best,and within a 20 min observation he thought he knew my child in and out! I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS UNPROFESSIONAL MAN TO ANY PARENT WHO IS SEDKING SERVICES AND HELP FOR A CHILD WHO HAS AUTISTIC OR DELAYER. I WILL NEVER AND DO NOT EVER CARE TO HEAR,SEE OR ACCEPT AN APOLOGY FROM HIM!!!
I am relieved to find this site. Today I took my 5 year old son in to see Dr. Jordan and found him useless! He told me that my childs actions were "normal of a 5 year old" and that the reasons for him being "Afraid" of things are to get my attention because he's "playing me" according to the dr. My pediatrician sent me there because she thinks he may have aspergers and dr. Jordan never once even said the word aspergers. He gave him a simple preschool level flip book test and then asked him to write his abc's on a line and then to copy a rectangle. he then tossed a ball at him to see his ocupational skills.I was asked to fill out a questionare that he marked with dashes on certain spots once I was done but NEVER reviewed or asked anything about any of it.He then told me my child was fine and gave me a RX for speech therapy and ocupational therapy and told me he does show signs of autism but that is only because he has an "nerological delay" I then asked what should I do about the intense anxiety? he then tells me he has anxiety because I am a push over and he knows he can get away with it and handed me a print out of a picture of a book I can order on line "the anxious child" a COMPLETE waste of time! it was a 62 mile drive from my home and that was a HUGE waste of gas. I left there wondering if my mother instinct was wrong, was I making it up? was I being "played" . I spoke to two friends for oppinons then started googling his reviews and found this page, which re-assured me its not ME it was the BAD DR. We will be getting a second oppinon.Dont waste the time!
I agree with every negitive comment about this man! He did a quick flip book test and asked my son to write his abc's of which he said my son did not do well on and then had him leave the room to write a paragraph. My son came backin the room with in a minute. He had only written 4 words. Then he sat us down and told me that there was nothing wong with him. He then asked "so what do you want me to do?" I told him we need help and I really didn't know and thats why we were here. He told me " He's your kid and your stuck with him". I have never felt so insulted by a doctor in all my life and he did this in front of my child. I made sure to explain to my son I have never been "stuck" with him or have ever felt that way. He then told me to lock my son in his room all day when he talked to much. Then when I asked about how to help my son with his morning routine before school...I was told to just take my child to school in his pajamas. This man is just seeing people to pay his rent or feed what ever habbit he has. He is sloppy looking and messy and he has a hand out for everthing known to man. I truly think he is suffering from his own mental issues and taking it out on his little patiences and their parents. STAY AWAY! One last comment the only reason why we went to him was because he was the only doctor that could see our son with out a six month waiting list...now I know why!!!
We waited almost 2 hours in the waiting room. Dr. Jordan was sloppy, smelly, and rude.I shared my concerns about our autistic son with him. He left the room for 15 minutes. He came back and handed me a pile of papers to read about autism. He offered no medical or profesisonal advice. He said I needed to go home and read those papers. He argued that he was the best doctor around and that I needed to follow his direction and that my son's autism won't get any better.I said we were using dietary efforts to help our son's autism as outline by Professor James Adams of the ASU autism research center. Dr. Jordan argued with me saying Dr. Adams was wrong, and that autistm isn't helped with diet changes. I told him that I have sat in Dr. Adam's office and found his research compelling and helpful. Dr. Jordan argued back saying diet can't help these kids and that he doesn't agree with research programs for autism.Please read other parent reviews online about Dr. Jordan. He was a very disturbing man to be around and we left within miutes of sitting in his dirty office. He kept looking over at my daughter and calling her princess (my daughter wasn't even the patient). I will never, never go back again. It was very upsetting and creepy. He doesn't he deserve 1 star. I would pay money just to stay away from him.
Worse bedside manner! He actually yelled at me and said my concerns are not his problem! Constantly interrupting me with his unprofessional tone. Please consider taking your child to a better facility...
I WISH I HAD READ THIS PRIOR TO TAKING MY 7 YEAR OLD SON HERE!!!!! THIS DR IS HORRIFIC! HE LOOKED SLOPPY, VERY UNPROFESSIONAL UNORGANIZED!!!!! HE WAS EXTREMELY EXTREMELY RUDE TO ME... I WAS IN COMPLETE SHOCK! I WOULD ASK A QUESTION AND HE WOULD COMPLETELY CUT ME OFF AND SNAP AN ANSWER AS IF I WAS WASTING HIS PRECIOUS TIME! HE GAVE MY SON A FLIP BOOK TEST AND THEN ASKED MY SON TO STEP OUT OF THE ROOM AND TOLD ME IN A NUTSHELL MY SONS DEVELOPMENTAL ISSUES ARE WHAT THEY ARE AND TO ACCEPT IT AND NOT STIR THE POT AND JUST BASICALLY GET OVER IT. HANDED ME A SHEET OF PAPER OF BOOKS TO READ AND SAID HE WOULD SEND A REPORT. DURING OUR APPOINTMENT HE TOOK A PHONE CALL, COULDN'T FIND HIS PAPER WORK, EVEN MADE THE COMMENT TO MY SON THAT HIS MOTHER WAS GONNA MAKE HIM ACTUALLY WORK TODAY SO HE WOULD HAVE TO CHARGE ME EXTRA... NOT FUNNY TO ME! I AM APPALLED THAT THIS MAN CAN EVEN CALL HIMSELF A DR. HIS STAFF WHILE THEY WERE COURTEOUS WERE WEARING SHORTS, TALKING ON THEIR CELL PHONES AND JUST PLAIN OUT UNPROFESSIONAL!!!! NONE OF MY QUESTIONS WERE ANSWERED, NOTHING WAS EXPLAINED, I LEFT CRYING WITH FRUSTRATION AND ANGER THAT I EVEN SUBJECTED MY SON TO THIS JOKE OF A DR WHEN ALL I AM TRYING TO DO AS A MOTHER IS HELP MY SON WHO IS IN NEED. I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THIS DR AND I WILL BE FILING A COMPLAINT AGAINST THIS DR AS WELL.
I read the reviews and thought he can't be that bad. No, he was worse than the reviews i read! He is very rude and evaluates the parents more than the child. He doesn't know what he is doing. And doesn't care. He is one of the dr that just like the money not the job. Take ur child to Dr. Perez at Villa Del Sol. Dr. Perez is GREAT!
I read all the horrible ratings on Dr. Jordan and was apprehensive taking my son in to see him..There was no unexpected wait..we were new patient and came in early to fill out paperwork as one should. Dr. was professional and courteous. I interjected once and was kindly corrected, which I understand because it was my child being tested and not myself. I think all of this negative hype may be coming from parents with children who have behavioral problems..Children are reflections of their parents and surroundings and if you are a monster, most likely, your child will be too. There are many children with true issues in life, who could use the help of a Dr. like this one, be responsible as you post messages and take responbility for your mistakes..
Oh how I wish I had read these reviews before I went to see Dr Jordan! I was referred to him by my pediatrician, but only after his original recommendation had a 4 month wait for an appointment. I absolutely agree with all of the bad reviews. This man has a horrible bedside manner and should never be allowed to practice on adults, let alone children! As he did with many of the other parents, he also cut me off and was rude to me, and completely ignored my son and demanded that I do the same. I also got the advice of locking my child in his room for 30 minutes at a time. His office staff is not professional either. I stopped in the office one afternoon after trying to call all day and not having them return my call. My son and I waited for close to 10 minutes in the waiting room without being acknowledged. (There was no one at the desk, but we could hear them just behind the wall) At one point my son ran to the back and when I went to get him, I saw a woman and informed her we had ben waiting. She told me that she didn't even work there. Then another woman (who looked about 14) came around the corner and asked if she could help me. She was dressed in shorts and a t-shirt. When I told her I had been waiting, she explained that Friday was a relaxed day, and that they don't answer the phones on Friday. Are you kidding me??? Then don't list the day as part of your office hours! I can't wait to let my pediatrician know about my experience with Dr Jordan so that he never, ever refers anyone to him again. Please trust me, there has got to be someone better out there to see your children. Don't bring them to this man!
The Dr. came in and began our appt. by complaining about the phone company!!! ?? He didn't introduce himself! He was sloppy and unorganized. He was rude to my child more than once. He would cut me off half sentence. Our appt. was about 20 minutes long! He brought out a little book and asked our child about 20 questions. He then quickly "added the test results" and told us a couple things. ???? He recommended a book and told us he would be sending a follow up report - that was over a month ago. He doesn't know how to properly communicate with others especially children!! I don't understand how this man could be in practice. I don't understand how this man could have satisfied parents/patients. DO NOT GO TO THIS MAN!!!! Rude, crude, and unprofessional!!!
He diagnosed my son with a very serious diagnosis with very little information. I have since heard from many people in the community that treat children that he has a reputation for this. Also, very little compassion.
I have never met a ruder doctor in my life. Very unprofessional. He was rude to me and my daughter and he was rude to his office staff in front of his patients. He did not read the report I brought, he didn't let me finish talking without rudly interrupting me everytime. I was only allowed to answer yes or no to his questions. The few minutes he spent testing my duaghter was an absolute joke!! He asked her about 4 questions, had her write her ABC's and then he gave me a score of her cognative abilites. I have a masters degree in special education and I've never seen someone slop through a test like that with a kid. It was a complete joke! He then said we would have to somewhere else to get another test done and then come back for him to give her a diagnoses. Seriouslly-- if I have to have someone else give a test he can't give I'll just let the other person give the diagnosis--why would I go back to this jerk. He used a sware word right in front of my daughter, he spilled his coffee twice and he had the smell of alcohol on his breath. I will be making formal complaints to my insurance company and to the state medical board.
This doctor evaluated my daughter in about 20 to 25 minutes and wanted to giver her a very serious diagnosis. All throughout the interview, he would not allow me to ellaborate on my answers pertaning to my daughter.He wanted yes or no answers.I felt he was to quick to diagnosed my daughter. He in fact wasn't sure at first of what her condition was and then all of a sudden he changed his mind and wanted to give a final diagnosis. Of course, I spoke up and said what i thought. Then he changed his mind and put her at risk instead. I agree with other patients that say he's not child friendly nor parent friendly. His office and reception is not child oriented either. His office was dark and messsy. He was very unorganized, unprepared, and yes very rude. I also came out of his crying. I will seek other opinions by other professionals because i was not satisfied with his opinion at all. He also blew a balloon for my daughter and then let her put her mouth on the balloon too. What if he had the flu or something. As a child professional, you don't do that . He also came into the office with cup of coffee and even took a cell phone call during our session and even walked out of the office. Overall, I do not recommed this Dr. at all. I regret not reserching him before going to this appointment. My fear is that he may be giving the wrong diagnosis to all these children when maybe the problem is something else...
My wife and I were pleasantly surprised after reading the reviews on this site. Dr. Jordan is a little rough around the edges, and his bedside manner could use some polishing, however he was attentive to our concerns, and he spent a long time with us. He gave us lots of resources to follow up with on our own. We saw him at the Flagstaff office, and there was no wait at all (in fact, he was waiting on US!) He is not "warm and fuzzy" like many pediatricians, so don't expect that kind of atmosphere. Overall we were very satisfied with him addressing our sons' needs.
Dr. Jordan has diagnosed both of my children and was very patient and explained everything so I could understand it. we have been seeing Dr. Jordan for 3 yrs now and have had nothing but positive experiences with him. I would definitely recommend him to friends, family etc.
He had horrible bedside manner. I left the initial consult in tears. I did not return to his office. I took my daughter to another dr office. Best decision I ever made. My child went from getting no help to getting on the fast track to getting the care and coverage she deserves.
Took my 20 month old son in for an evaluation with this Dr. and He was the rudest person I have ever met in my life. He wouldn't look at any reports I brought in from the MRI or Neurologist he told me "That doesn't matter to me" so I finally got him to read the findings from the Neurologist and he said "Well it says here that everything is normal" when the top of the report said abnormal results and delayed.He told me that my son has bad behavior problems and I should lock him in his room for at least 30 minutes at a time. Then he said if that doesn't work lock him in there all day, thats the only way you will keep yourself from not going insane. So I asked him what else I could do and he kept saying "Lock him in his room, and don't take him out in public" He kept yelling at my older son who was in the room and kept telling me "Can you please keep that kid away from his brother" I walked out of his office crying, I was so upset I didn't even wait to see the Nutritionist, I can only imagine how that would have went.I would never see this man again if my life depended on it, and I definately do not recommend anyone taking their child to his office.
A month after the visit and we still haven't seen a report. Waited in the waiting room (ick) for a good half hour, not because Dr. was with another patient, but Dr. was LATE to work. Really? Don't schedule appointments at 8:30 in the morning if he doesn't come in under 9. Period.
Dr Jordan was aweful and left me feeling even more insecure about my child's issues. He said to lock my child up for 30 minutes for his behavioral problems! He made mention of his nieces and nephew having no behavioral issues because they respect their parents, I am assuming by that comment that he has no children of his own. In addition his bedside manner is rude and when speaking to my son he didn't even attempt to talk to his level. He scoffed at what our attempts at discipline for our child were in a demeaning fashion. Do NOT recommend his to anyone, please get a referral for someone else.
I reviewed his stats before I went, lots of bad comments. I thought I would give him a chance to prove himself to me. After getting there early to fill out paper work (as they requested)a patient came in after me but went in first because they were a "follow-up and would be fast" It took 45 minutes. I already waited 70 minutes before he decided he was going to take a 2nd patient who came in for "a quick follow-up". Office staff told him I was there over an hour and he rudely said "Thanks for keeping me updated" and took the other person anyway. He didn't look at us, talk to us, say sorry, say I will be right with you....NOTHING, just turned and walked away...how rude. It was as if we were not there. He obviously does not trust his staff to make office/appt. decisions, he was rude to them too. From what I saw, he definetly cannot manage himself and has no repect for others so how can he be trusted to make decisions about my childs well being? After that, there was NO WAY I was going to let him see my child. Also, my time is just as important as his. He may think he is more important, but he is no better than anyone else. I should have trusted the reviews I read before I went to see him. This man has NO RESPECT for anyone. He must think he needs no patients, so do him a favor, DON'T GO SEE HIM.
The wait time was unacceptable. A patient who did not have an appointment and came in after we did was seen and left before us. Dr Jordan performed an intelligence test (as far as I could tell) and we needed a behavioral test. Overall, not a good experience.
He would not let me discuss my childs problem, he only let me answer yes or no or normal or not...no people skills at all! I almost walked out after my first 2 minutes of appt. Would never go back, ever!
I have 2 children that have seen Dr. Jordan. He is great everytime. Really takes the time to listen, and to check out everything before making a DX. His office staff is also so nice and helpful!
Dr Jordan was rude and overbilled for his services. He verbally made one diagnosis, then changed his mind and wrote a different one - causing a loss of services. Don't waste your time/money.
