Knowledgeable but impossible to reach in an emergency

When I first met Dr. Harvey I found him to be bright and seemingly knowledgeable about my pulmonary issues. He is however, at best, neglectful and at worst, dangerously uninvolved with patients on going care. Calls to him in a potentially life and death medical situation remain unanswered. He simply chooses to ignore phone calls and when asked, face to face, why calls were not returned, insists he never received the message (even when four or more messages were left). With so many outstanding, responsive doctors in NY you would be best served in avoiding this physician.

STAY AWAY - YOU CAN FIND BETTER

DR. HARVEY PROVED TO BE A VERY UNRESPONSIVE AND IRRESPONSIBLE DR. I SAW HIM FOR A PULMONARY PROBLEM AND HE SEEMED CAPABLE IN READING MY CT AND COMING UP WITH A DIAGNOSIS. HOWEVER, HE SPOKE LITTLE AND SEEMED TO LACK A GOOD COMMAND OF THE LANGUAGE. HE WAS NOT EAGER TO TALK AND EXPLAIN. THEN HE PRESCRIBED A VERY EXPENSIVE RX. IT TOOK ME A WEEK OF CALLING HIM EVERY DAY BEFORE HE REACTED TO MY PLEAS TO GIVE ME ANOTHER RX THAT I COULD AFFORD. I HAD TO THREATEN HIM WITH LETTERS TO HIS SUPERIORS. FINALLY, HE RETURNED MY CALL, BUT WAS STILL UNABLE TO FIND ME AN ADEQUATE RX. I WILL MOST CERTAINLY SEND MY LETTER TO THE HEAD OF HIS DEPARTMENT. HE SEEMED COMPLETELY UNCONCERNED ABOUT MY PROBLEM. AVOID THIS MD!!
