I had been diagnosed 9 years ago at the MS Center of Atlanta. It took me over three months to get my first appt. She had little to say to me. She ordered an MRI. On the next visit she walked in and said "well, you DO have MS". She had all of my records for the 9 years prior and had to confirm my diagnosis.?!? Her staff is beyond rude and I actually mentioned it to Dr Riser and she gave the impression that she didn't really care. On my last visit I was trying to tell her about some unusual episodes I'd been having. In the middle of my 30 second description, she was up and out the door without any interest in what I was trying to tell her. I cancelled my last scheduled appointment. I didn't want to waste her time and I certainly didn't want to waste mine. I'm presently looking for a Dr that might care. I've never felt like anyone in that practice cared. (I have only been a patient of hers for a little over a year.)
THE OFFICE STAFF ... (EXCLUDING THE LAB PERSON) ....HAS A VERY UGLY ATTITUDE. THE RETURN APPOINTMENT RECEPTIONIST NEVER HAS A SMILE ON HER FACE NEVER TRY TO UPLIFT YOUR DAY THE NURSE LOOKS AT YOU AS IF TO SAY SHE DONT WANT WHAT YOU GOT. NEVER FEEL AS THOUGH ANYONE IN THE OFFICE REALLY CARES. DR RISER IS SWEET BUT IN TO BIG OF A HURRY. SEE US AS PEOPLE WITH FEELINGS NOT JUST AN ILLNESS PLEASE ACT AS IF Y YOU ARE CONCERN.
I have been her patient for 9 years. Her staff is incredibly rude. You will never get a call back for anything, emergency or not. Emily herself already has in her mind what she wants to discuss in your appointment and refuses to listen to you. She will talk over you not answer questions and ignore what you are saying completely. This woman cares more about being the "best MS doctor" in Birmingham than the quality of life her patients endure under her care. Never met anyone who cares less.
