Extremely Disappointed!

I just had the most bizarre doctor visit experience I have EVER had! Not that I have not had my share of disappointments, but this was something else altogether! The first words out of her mouth were…I see that you have a lot of questions (based on questionnaire they had mailed asking for patient history, conditions, and questions), but I have limited time and can only respond to some of them, so decide what is most important!! She went on to say that she has already taken 15 minutes to review my record and will need 15 minutes to write up our visit and that leaves about 15 minutes (out of the allotted 45 minutes for new patients) for our time! As if this was not bad enough, seeing that I was an educated patient (about my condition), she also added that she will not debate anything and will only answer questions her way and that she will have to cut me off when our time runs out! The visit felt nothing short of being on an assembly line. It seemed she cared more about her time than providing patient care. She repeated herself about the time allotment at least 5 times (during our rushed and very short time) and in the most elaborate ways each and every time…so much so, that I had to say, you are taking more time repeating this point than actually helping me and offering advise! I walked away not learning anything more about my condition than what I already knew or couldn’t Google myself…and with no treatment plan, or any measurable help/advise! I also found her not so well informed on all the latest approaches to treatment (that don’t involve pushing pharmaceuticals), nor that concerned about the widely known and hotly debated extreme and dangerous side effects of the drugs used to treat this disease.

Dr. Kurland not knowledgable

This Dr. is this very unprofessional I was cancelled on 3 times. When I did see her she knew very little and did not try to be helpful, she instead was condescending and dismissive. I really think she does not know her stuff and is trying to hide that fact by putting off her patient. DO NOT WAIST YOUR TIME OR MONEY on this Dr.

One Star

Dr. Kurland was unable to electronically retrieve my files. Was not willing to answer any of my questions and concerns. She said "I'm too annoyed right now to answer any questions".

dedicated, thorough and caring

Dr. Etah Kurland is an excellent and extremely knowledgeable doctor who accurately diagnosed an issue that I had which 3 other doctors misdiagnosed over a span of 2 years. She spent a lot of time during my consultation and follow-ups and made it very evident that she truly cared about me. She is very experienced, smart and methodical in her approach and leaves no stones unturned before reaching a diagnosis.

OUTSTANDING

Dr Kurland is not only brilliant but direct, assertive and beyond attentive. I have a complex hyperparathyroid condition and she has made me feel very safe and secure in her exploration methods, her communication with my potential surgeon and her willingness to go beyond the confines of an office visit to ensure all variables or potential problems are addressed. I feel extremely blessed to have Dr. Kurland in charge of my health at this time, which, since I have been diagnosed my emotional state has been extremely trying and quite unsettling
