A very frustrating experience

I have never reviewed a physician online before, but have found my experience with Dr. Paraiso to be so frustrating, I am writing this review in the hopes that I can help someone else from avoiding a similar experience. I have had to call the practice repeatedly seeking test results, and only received those results after nine days and three phone calls. The results were given to me in a very rushed phone call at the end of the day, and the next steps were poorly outlined for me. I had to call again and follow up with other staff members to make sense of my diagnosis and follow up testing protocol. I have been awaiting more test results for two tests, one conducted several weeks ago. I have already called once and have waited several days for a response. I have never had to call a doctor repeatedly to receive test results and discuss next steps. I am left wondering how much time would go by before I was contacted by Dr. Paraiso if I did not repeatedly call for my results. I do not feel as if my discomfort or health are of much concern to Dr. Paraiso.

The worst experience I ever had

I was a patient of Dr. Paraiso. I had a couple of appointments with him for a problem with my bladder. both times I waited over an hour to see him. I was still not feeling well and called asking if I could speak to him about maybe getting on some new medication or something. The assistant got on the phone and told me he said I would HAVE to be seen. So the staff gave me an appointment for the next morning. This time I waited about 2 hours to see him. My appointment was for 11. I saw him at about 1. He came in the room where I was sitting in a chair in the corner still wearing my coat. I started to tell him how I was just wanting to speak to him over the phone and he cut me off, telling me he did not know what was wrong with me and to go to a different doctor because I might need surgery. I said "For this I waited 2 hours? For you to tell me this?" He then got up and left the room without even examining me. A nurse did not examine me either. They didn't even do so much as take my temperature. He couldn't care less that I waited 2 hours for nothing and showed no compassion or concern at all for me. I got no apology for the long wait from him or his staff. I have transportation problems so I had to take a cab up and back, which cost me 40 dollars and then I also had the 25 dollar co pay. All for this doctor to spend a total of 30 seconds just talking to me. I also got the feeling he was trying to upset and frighten me because he didn't like the fact that I still had questions. I don't know about you, but if I was dying and this doctor had the only cure, I would not go back.
