I have been seeing Dr. Risser for three years and I liked her until I had an abnormal Pap smear. First it took 35 days for me to get my pap results. Then when it came back abnormal and was told I need to have a colposcopy and biopsy it took her 2 days to call me back. When I went for the biopsy my mom went with me and was going to come back with me to ask some questions. The nurse told my mom to wait because there wasn't a room ready yet. Well by the time the nurse was done taking my vitals there was a room ready. One would think that the nurse would have gone to get her but nope she didn't. I was left in the room alone and a nervous wreck for over a half hour while I heard Dr. Risser laughing in the hall. After the biopsy Dr. Risser told me nothing except she wanted to see me in 2 weeks to give me my results. I asked if I could get the results over the phone and she said no which was fine but she added "in case the results are really bad." What kind of doctor says that? A week later my results were back and she called to tell me that the results were bad and I needed to have leep or a cone biopsy. I was clearly upset but you offered no comfort or suggestion of which procedure to undergo and told me that she couldn't rule out that it isn't cancer. I had to guess what procedure I should have and she gave me little to information and when my pathology results were posted online I was even more confused and upset because I was left to research them on my own. We all know what comes of googling your medical condition. I am having the leep procedure tomorrow and am having so much anxiety because I don't trust her but I feel like I have to let her do the procedure because I don't want to put myself at a higher risk. I can't wait to find another doctor for the follow up. If you have a job forgot trying to make an appointment that works with your schedule because she is hardly in the office. She has no evening hours and is only in 1 Saturday a month.
I've been going to to Dr. Risser since I was 16 years old, I am currently 26. When I first went to her I liked her she explained what she was going to do and what was happening. She put me on the Pill and when I turned 18 I choice to stop taking them. I NEVER got my period back. I asked her every time I went is this okay, and she would tell me yes it will come back on it's own. Once In awhile she would give me provera. but never gave me my period back after that month. When I was bleeding after sex I told her about it and she did an biopsy on me said I am precancerous because of the lack of periods I have had and wants me to take the depo shot when I asked for something else she told me their is nothing else. She did not do a good job explaining to me why I could not have something else. She is always in a rush and has no time for her patients. I guess they updated their site to where your test results you can view them on the computer well there was a few things on there she never told me about! And my biopsy exam was never on it. makes me wonder if it was a lie just for money. Its nearly impossible to schedule an appointment with her. The staff their is rude! not all but most are. I am currently looking for a new doctor. I suggest all to stay away from this one.
She was super nice but always in a huge hurry. We scheduled a day for me to be induced with my first pregnancy and I told everyone the date and then she called saying she's actually be out of town that day, she forgot. Then when we saw her she was like we are rescheduling because I'll be out of town right I was like idk will you!? It was all very confusing and probably more stressful then it has to be. Then I put in a maternity leave for 12 weeks and she only did it for 6 weeks! Now I have to call her for an extension!
I was having grand mal seizures monthly. I documented them for months and determined it was when I ovulate. So I asked if she could do a hormone test or inspect why I have seizures 2 weeks before my cycle EVERY month. She simply said, "Youre too young for health problems, you'll be fine" and walked out. Grand mal seizures could've severely injured me (or worse)! She has NO concern for your health! Stay clear!!!!!!!
