Attitude without performance

I chose Dr. Planer a year ago based on the reviews here. I am sure years ago they were all those things, but that was then and now is a different story. It took me two months to get my first appointment. During that time I developed pheumonia.. Despite the X-ray and test from the walk-in clinic @ Millennium, she never looked at them, listened to my breathing and diagnosed me with COPD. She ordered inhalers costing me $435. out of pocket and sent me for a sperimeter. The sperimeter came back negative for COPD, she changed my records to Bronchitis but never told me, never discussed the sperimeter results or treat me for bronchitis ( which I don't have). Both Dr. Planer and her nurse Ms. Russell take no time to read tests results. They never call you and when you complain, you might as well be talking to a wall. My most recent MRI showed a serious problem in my lumbar region ( I had to call the radiologist for the results. I got my records and now see another primary care physician.

Bigger is not always better

If you had asked me last week this time, I would have given Dr. Planer 5 stars. On September 28, 2017 after 11 months in a satisfactory/ excellent physician/patient relationship, Dr. Planer terminated our relationship , not personally and without prior notice, discussion or anything. Millenium Physicians Group is a large multi doctor, multi-facility healthcare business. I have to say that for 11 months the corporation and Dr. Planer had you feel that it wasn't. But suddenly I found out just how disposable a patient can be. You all know what is is like dealing with a huge unaccountable consumer based corporation when something happens and you try and get someone who has a first and a last name, a title and a phone number to resolve your Customer/patient complaint. The past several days it has not only been impossible to get someone to tell you why the doctor terminated you, but even worse to get the doctor to talk to you personally. I have had more caring, non-judgemental and ethical responses from Amazon.com than from this mega health provider. So I am taking my self respect and heading for the next small primary care office. Good riddins.

Wonderful Doctor

Dr. Planer has been my physician for a number of years here in Florida. She's more like a friend. She listens and has always been right on with diagnosing any problems I've had. She's always so pleasant and always has a smile on her face when she comes in to greet you. I know I always have the best care when I have my yearly physical and at times when I need to see her for another problem. I highly recommend her.
