Former Patient

I too, had an awful experience with Dr. Wilbert, MD. She is technically proficient and was able to isolate the issue I was having with my immune system. However, she was very condescending to both patients and her staff. She also was insensitive in her consultation and delivering some medical news that was unexpected. She can be very congenial and then turn on you in a split second.

Dr. Catherine Wilbert, M.D.

One of the main things that I really liked about Dr. Wilbert is that if there's anyting going on with you, Dr. Wilbert will NOT let you go until she and you both are fully aware of EVERYTHING THAT YOU MAY NEED TO KNOW. DR. WILBERT IS ON TARGET AND MAKES YOU FEEL AS IF YOU AND YOUR BABY MATTERS. DR. WILBERT KNOWS HOW TO BREAK THINGS DOWN TO YOU SO THAT YOU MAY UNDERSTAND WHAT SHE'S SAYING AND MAKES YOU FEEL AS IF YOU'RE NOT A PT., BUT FAMILY.

HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE/ NEVER AGAIN

The staff at the front desk always seem cranky and in a hurry to get you away from them, and now after my last visit I understand why they are so bitter. I didn't have the copayment, because I didn't realize they didn't accept credit cards, they said as long as I get the money before my name is called I can still be seen. TWO hours pass and my name is never called, and my money never showed. I asked if they would still allow me to be seen, and I will run to the ATM/Bank and bring back the money. Dr. Wilbert didn't realize I was standing right there when her office staff went to go ask. The doctor began to yell and talk down to her staff member, and proceeded to call, me, the patient stupid and irresponsible in all kinds of forms. She said I was irresponsible for coming late, and every time her office staff told her I was early, the doctor called (me) the patient stupid. She wouldn't allow her office staff to say much of anything without cutting her off and speaking down to her more, so every time her staff tried to say I was standing right there, she was cut off, and the Dr. Wilbert never realized the patient she was calling stupid and irresponsible was standing right there. I am not upset that she didn't see me I understand a policy is a policy, but no one on this earth deserves to be treated the way her staff was by her, and no patient should ever be talked about in that manner. The way she handled everything was wrong!! Of all the people in this world that you are suppose to trust besides your spouse, is your OBGYN. HER I DO NOT TRUST, AND WILL NEVER GO BACK TO!!

Doctor's Response

I am sorry that was your experience. I have NEVER called a patient stupid. I know what type of individual I am and have always felt "to err is human." What I was probably referring to was that I thought it was stupid and irresponsible for the staff to allow a patient to check in and let them sit there two hours without acknowledging the wait and addressing the issue of the copay. I agree, another word besides stupid should have been used.
