DID NOT FOLLOW UP ON SYMPTOMS

Posted on May 31st, 2017

My friend died because this guy kept telling her for months if she would loose weight her back would not hurt. Several times he accused her of coming in just for pain medication. By the time she could not stand the pain anymore and went to the ER this veteran had cancer everywhere and her spine was almost eaten through by the cancer. She was sent to Indy. She died 11 weeks later. Had he ordered a simple x-ray instead of using his ultra-sound, they would have found this cancer months earlier. You could not pay me enough money to go to this man.

upset

Posted on July 8th, 2011

Have gone to this office for 30 yrs. +; however, last 5-8 yrs. only seen by nurse practioners. Wait time is always over 45 min. to l hr. or more. Do like Dr. but never able to get appointment with him. Office now has new "drug agreement" that must be signed an kept in records... you agree to not see any other practioner or get meds from more than listed pharmacy or you will be dropped from the practice. Pain meds for chronic conditions that have documented history are increasingly harder to obtain. Patients are viewed as drug seekers automatically. Is something new happening out there? It is certainly affecting the way this office does business.

Office Help Destroyers Doctor Pt relations.

Posted on April 30th, 2011

Office manager decides who and when you see as well as YOUR MEDS and FOLLOW up if she likes you that is ( she has NO medical Degree) . She happens to be the Doctors wife. My experiencee included a VERY high turn over rate in Nurse practitionerss and partner MDs. VERY BAD OFFICE help and records.
