Discharged for no reason

I first saw Dr. Darsham Gonzalez at Interecoastal Medical over a year ago and was very impressed with his bedside manner and his intellect. However, this past winter was a nightmare for me. During one visit the doctor looked at me and said, "If you are expecting 1970's doctoring I am not the doctor for you, I'm too busy for that." I wasn't clear why he said that to me but was clear in his meaning. I also felt like he resented the fact that I did research before visiting him and came prepared with questions. I left Sarasota for the summer in May and received a priority mail letter informing me that he was discharging me from his practice, with no explanation suggesting I call the medical society or telephone book for a new doctor. Dr. Gonzalez didn't even suggest I switch to another doctor in their very large practice. Well, I am so angry right now. I feel I did absolutely nothing to be discharged from this practice. I had to call the the office and leave two messages a week a part just to get the office manager to return my call. I just spoke with her and she told me she had avoided returning my call as she knew I wanted to discuss the matter. She told me the doctor was within his rights to discharge me and owed me no further explanation and she had no intention of discussing the matter with me. I asked her why he didn't just suggest I try another doctor in their very large practice and she told me it wasn't his responsiblity to help me find another doctor. As a former business owner, I feel this is very bad customer service. There appears to be an acceptance of rudeness on their part while no allowance for a patient who is ill or worried. In all my years of seeking medical assistance I have never experienced this type of treatment. It is both embarrassing and emotionally painful. I want to prevent any of my Sarasota friends from the same humiliation and pray you don't have to ever deal with this office manager, when I asked her for her name she hung up on me. I called the office back and her name is Sheila Eagan. I also asked the front desk if I could switch to another doctor in the office and she said she didn't believe so but it would up to the office manager and I don't think I want another round with her. I found another yelp review for a different Intercoastal Medical office and they were discharged as a patient as well, so this doesn't appear to be an isolated case. The Potter office was very convenient for me and being a type 1 diabetic I was relieved to have a doctor where I spend half of my year but this marriage ended in an ugly divorce. I really didn't want to take this route as I don't enjoy saying unkind things but I believe knowledge is a powerful tool and I don't want to see another person humiliated this way.

great doctor - took time to understand my needs!

I had gone without a doctor for many years and a bout with the flu caused me to see Dr. Gonzalez. My first visit put all my "doctor fears" to rest, as he spent time to get to know me and helped me understand my ailment. His bedside manner surpassed any other doctors i had gone to in the past. His encourangement for me to make some changs in my lifestyle has improved my health dramatically. I referred a friend and they were equally impressed. Dr. Gonzalez is not the average doctor - he is an exceptional one!
