I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Shannon to have an EGD procedure performed for an upcoming surgery with another surgeon. However, when I arrived for my appointment I was told that I had been given the wrong time and date, Dr. Shannon was in surgery. Therefore, I was asked and given a time to return later that day, when his surgery clinic had ended. When I returned, I waited over 30 minutes before I was called into an exam room. Once I finally was put into an exam room, his nurse had updated my history etc. I received a date and time for my EDG procedure, and was told by his nurse that I didn’t need to see Dr. Shannon and could leave. I explained to her that I had no knowledge of the how to prepare for the EDG procedure etc. So, I would like to speak with Dr. Shannon (Plus, they had taken my $50.00 co-pay). Once, Dr. Greggory, entered my room, he didn’t bother to say hello, how are you? etc. He did say “Okay, we got you all fixed up. Your scheduled for the EDG procedure. I’ll see you then. I’ve got to get back to the patients that have appointments.” At this point, I reached out to shake his hand and said “Hello, it’s good to see you, as well.” He hesitated, then reached to shake my hand, then said “Okay! Great!! I’ll see you in a couple of weeks, my nurse got you ready to go!” Even though, I was shocked, I turned gabbed my things and walked out of the room thinking, Wow!! He didn’t bother to ask whether I understood the reason for procedure etc. I immediately went to the front desk and requested a form to transfer my records. The Hispanic lady that had previously called to confirm my appointment the day before, asked me to wait. Once she returned she asked whether I would like to speak with the office manager. I said “I’m too upset to speak with anyone!! I just want a copy of the form or you can fax it to my home. I never got the form. However, his office manager called me before I reached the parking lot and asked “What can I could do to the fix things? Or whether I would like to speak with Dr. Shannon regarding the mix-up.” I said “YES!” I would very much like to discuss with Dr. Shannon what occurred today.” I never received a return phone call.
This was one of the most personable docs I have seen in a long time. He listened very attentively and helped me with a problem that I had suffered with for years. Me and my husband moved here from L.A. and we're referred to Dr. Shannon. Within a week we had a diagnosis and treatment has gone exceedingly well! After seeing several docs in California who had diagnosed me wrong I am so happy now to be with Dr. Shannon!
Dr. Shannon is a great doctor. However, his scheduling staff and front desk administration are professional yet incompetent. As an existing patient, when I suffer from symptons of an illness doctor is treating me for I should not have to wait 1 month to see him. This has happended to me several times this year. Moving on to a new doctor.
