Specialties

Dr. Don M Endress has the following 1 specialty

  • General Practice

    A general practitioner is similar to a family practitioner in that they treat patients of all ages with a variety of health concerns. These doctors treat everyday ailments, some acute and chronic diseases, and also provid health checkups, physicals, inoculations and preventative care.
    General practitioners differ from family practitioners because they are not required to complete an additional residency in family medicine after completing their medical school residency. Like family practitioners, general practitioners will also provide referrals to patients who are in need of a specialist.

Stay away from this doctor!

I had a couple of routine visits & he seemed to be just another arrogant doctor until.... I had a severe vehicle accident driving off a cliff & crashing 30 feet below. The truck flipped end over end and was totaled. I was unconscious and taken to a hospital 50 miles away. I had a broken back and was required to go to my primary.... this guy. He minimized my injury, said the neck and back brace I had on was useless, and said he ordered my records, CT & Xray from the emerg. room. After a week, I called the hospital and they didn't get a call from the staff here. I had to have the records department call him and THEN he had the records. Same day he called me back to say he wasn't going to refer to the spine specialist the hospital recommended and it was the same type thing little old lady's get! I'm sure he didn't know what he was looking at and have since seen other reviews on Endress and talked to people in the community who all have stories of him giving the wrong diagnosis or the wrong medication! STAY AWAY! Hes dangerous!

Incompetent and lazy

The one-star rating is too generous for Dr. Endress, he deserves a negative one-star. He needs to retire or enter a different profession because he is truly the worst doctor I have ever encountered. His arrogance and unprofessional behavior are detrimental to his patients who literally have no other options besides him for primary care. He is too lazy to write preauthorizations or even to send a fax for a record release. Save yourself the headache of dealing with this imbecile and drive to Modesto or literally anywhere else if you want proper care.

One Star

Went for a referral last week. Refused to give a referral to specialist but willing to medicate symptoms...No need to understand what is really going on...Instead of listening to me, the patient, about what I was looking for, my concerns for my health and why, he had to give me details on his experience. He and some of the staff are on the defense instead of listening... Looking for a new primary.

Two Stars

Was involved in a dirt bike accident and was mediflighted to a hospital where I was admitted. The nurse practitioner had the nerve to tell me that they didn't give out norcos for road rash. Well they don't admit you for road rash either. I fell off a dirt bike going 40 mph and I'm 300 pounds, you can only imagine how sore I am. Trust me and find another doctor, you don't want to get stuck in pain with no meds. Keep in mind I only asked for a weeks worth of meds.
