One Star

Worst doctor I have ever dealt with. Extremely rude, egotistical and not the least bit helpful. Save your money.

Inept

Mom had a stroke in her frontal lobe. Prior to stroke, she was taking oxybutinen. One night she got dressed , packed up her things and walked away from the hospital. She walked 1 block to catch the bus home. The stroke impacted her ability to think and reason. Within 2 days at the hospital, she started hallucinating, seeing bugs on the floor and walls. Her family determined she may be having an allergic reaction to oxybutinen and had it discontinued. Within hours the hallucinations went away. The next morning, Dr Shiener with his residents and arrogance in tow, came in and spoke to my mom in a condescending manner and spoke to us in a dismissive manner without even reading her medical charts insisting we commit her the psyche ward. The stroke alone impacted her ability to think logically. Yes her walking away from hospital was not safe or logical, but we were confused as to why a person who had a stroke would need to be committed. Had he taken the time to review her charts prior, he would have known that oxybutinen caused her hallucinations and she was no longer seeing bugs. There is are some other concerns with Mr. Shiener as well. He should not have privileges at any facility .

HORRIBLE DOCTOR!!!!!

This doctor is a dangerous quack! Avoid him at all costs! He does not tell the truth about time spent with patient, about diagnoses and prognoses. I would have given him ZERO stars for his performance, but that was not an option. He does not deserve even ONE star in any area!
