Incompetent

My actual problem was a bile duct tear. His diagnosis was constipation. Even though the tests he ordered came back normal, he didn't bother to listen to me or assess me very well and order different tests. He was indifferent, nonchalant, noncaring, and didn't bother to listen. In other words, incompetent. He is a liability to the hospital. I will never use Baptist East emergency room again because of him.

Worst Bedside Manner EVER!

I went to the emergency room with numbness on my left side. I have a history of strokes so per instructions from neurologist I always go to the emergency room whenever I have any symptoms. This man, Harold Kim, didn't listen to anything I said. He continued to question me like I didn't know what I was talking about. THEN, he prescribed pain medication which I can not take since I am already on seizure medication as well as other medication. I gave a complete list of all medication when I checked in but obviously he didn't bother to read any of my history. When the nurse brought the medications I explained that I could not take them. However, I was charged $10.80 for each pill which I refuse to pay for. If you ever go to Baptist Hospital and Harold Kim comes in, RUN!
