Not collaborative and seems to have difficulty keeping patients

I saw Dr Simms a few time but decided he was not for me. I wanted a Dr with a more collaborative model. As a former ER Dr, he seems used to telling a patient what to do without respecting their opinion well. I tried a year later to get an appointment with a different Dr in the office and they refused. I called back 4 or 5 times over a week and they said the note asking permission from Dr Simms for me to see a different Dr was still on his desk. I never received a call back and finally gave up and decided I did not want to support a practice where the politics and economics of the Dr's appears to be more important than taking care of patients.

Four Stars

He is attentive and good at drawing one out when one is hesitant. He follows up and inquires how one is doing. My one complaint is he tends to be rather 'woo woo' (ie New Age leanings, which make me uncomfortable as that is not my forte)Eager to recommend other doctos that one might be more comfortable with. Rather pushes treatments, prodedures. I guess he wants to cover all the bases and one just has to let him know what one is willing to do and not to do.Overall he is genuine in his concern.
