Specialties

Dr. Douglas D Notman has the following 2 specialties

  • Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism

    An endocrinologist is a physician with extensive training in understanding, diagnosing and treating conditions related to the endocrine system. The endocrine system regulates the balance of hormones.
    Conditions of the endocrine system involve an over-abundance, or deficiency of a certain hormone. While there is a range when it comes to the amount of a hormone that is deemed normal in a human, these specialists determine whether a person's amount of hormone is indicative of a health concern. Two conditions this specialist might treat are diabetes and obesity.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Five Stars

Dr. Notman is a wonderful doctor. Unfortunately, he retired in Dec 2014. He spent a lot of time with me at the initial appointment, making sure he understood my issues. On subsequent visits, the appointments were timely and informative.

One Star

Patient communication skills are limited. If you want a doctor who tells you what to do, and you don't ask questions, this is the doctor for you. "Just do what I tell you." Knows his field, but does not like questions, will not consider individual patient metabolism or issues. Practices for "most of my patients" rather than the individual.

Arrogant, insensitive--and IGNORANT!

I saw him after testing by my primary revealed problems. Unfortunately, he doesn't listen, doesn't believe results of any tests he hasn't ordered personally, diagnoses without examining or talking to the patient (diagnosis, by the way, turned out to be completely incorrect), more interested in impressing the student doctor with him than in the patient. When I answered the couple questions he did ask me, he condescendingly blew off my answers because the facts didn't agree with his theories. THis guy should have retired years ago; given his pompous, god-complex, he probably should never have been in medicine at all. Maybe his attitude went down OK in the "olden days" or works with some elderly patients who still actually believe docs are infallible but today's patients are generally better educated about their health issues and treatments and won't tolerate this jerk. Get rid of him!
