Takes the Time To Properly Diagnose

Dr. Hoadley takes the time that is necessary to properly diagnose. I don't mind waiting when she has complicated patients ahead of me because I know she would take the time to give me the same level of care. Moreover, her treatment of Lyme and other tick borne diseases is exemplary. I recommend her to more patients with Lyme disease than anyone else because I know she is a compassionate diagnostician and healer. In fact, I believe she has saved my life!

Thorough historian and examiner and I as I am a physician I know. Discussions of diagnostic results and specialized testing revealed a vast breadth of knowledge. And treatment planning well crafted with an ear to all expectations and concerns I conveyed.

Very Strange Experience

So there are a number of weird things going on here. #1 Dr. Hoadley was at the desk when I walked in. She acted like a receptionist but did not introduce herself at all. She later asked if her assistant had taken my insurance information but I never saw anyone in the office other than her. Another patient told me that she has no office help but pretends to be a receptionist when she is on the phone. I experienced this when trying to schedule an appointment. I was handed paperwork and told to go to another room and never told that they were running behind . #2 The office is a mess! All patient records are stacked on the desk and in filing boxes on the floor. This does not seem HIPAA compliant. I can't stress how unsettling this was it looks like she is in the process of moving but others say it is always like this. I waited for 2 hours to be seen. 2 hours!!! She does seem to be very knowledgeable about Lyme Disease and the treatment. However, it bothered me a bit that she spent so much time talking about diet, supplements and mind/body and then followed it up with a sales pitch for nurtitional shake, bars and vitamins as well as reiki offered for additional fees in the office. I woould have liked her to recommend a protocol that worked over something she was selling and or affiliated with. I am hoping her treatment will be effective and it will be worth putting up with this weird environement. I highly suggest that she gets A) Filing cabinets B) An office manager C) A computer and D) Some alternate resources for patients other than those she is making a profit from.

A Godsend!

May take some time to see but well worth it if you have Lyme or other tick borne diseases. She doesn't see everything as Lyme disease either. If you have a different cause of illness/injury she will figure it out and send you to the right specialty.
