Great Physician working in an organization that does not support him

Dr Rudolf is a caring and compassionate practitioner who spends time with his patients. he is a rare, extremely knowledgeable pain practitioner with a way of communicating complex pain mgmt treatments so they are understandable options to consider. However! His clinic, his staff and the processes involved in trying to get in touch with him for followup, are abysmal. Horrible. The Swedish group is business, reactively risk mgmt. oriented, profit focused, not patient centered or process improvement focused. Everytime I leave messages for the staff to relate to Dr. Rudolf, the request is misunderstood, miscommunicated to the doctor, and the resulting response has been at times, dangerously not accurate, putting both the doctor and myself at risk. This issue has undermined Dr. Rudolf's effectiveness I believe, sadly, as he is truly a quality provider in a very challenging field that requires effective communication outside of just the appointments. My experience with 4 different Swedish provider organizations has been the same. The Swedish group has real issues with their processes, and their culture is more like a government bureaucracy, with staff doing no more than is required, and avoiding any requests to do a little extra effort to help their patients.

Two Stars

First, Dr. Rudolf effectively helped me get off pain medication. Having said that, I must report complete neglect on his part re: follow-up and absolutely no communication. What I find particularly offensive is his saying he communicated with me when he did not. His staff is rude and unhelpful. I used him to get off the meds, but I would not recommend him to anyone.

great

I've been seeing Greg for 8yrs now. We both had a daughter born about the same time. He is always thoughtful , and considerate. I just saw a negative review of him,and I think that speaks more to the reviewer than it does to Dr Rudolph. His primary concern is always his patient.

Four Stars

I've been seeing Dr. Rudolf for several years now to manage chronic pain. He always spends a good 10 minutes talking and getting a thorough picture before talking about next steps in therapy. I respect his opinion and feel in good hands with him. He must be good because he is always VERY busy, running from patient to patient, but he does take enough time with me to feel cared for.
