Horrible-doesn't care if you drop dead!

I went to see this doctor because I am experiencing the same type of cancer symptoms my siblings have had. I arrived 7 minutes late because I got stuck in traffic after my mom’s appointment, then got blocked in the Dr’s garage and went to the wrong side of the office because there was no sign and waited 5 minutes at the wrong window. None of her rude staff told me to arrive early or sent me new patient forms. Now, I have to go to the ER because I use my time off work for my mom’s appointments.

Agressively defensive and unapologetically late.

I had talked to Dr. Kelly previously on the phone where she declined to prescribe antibiotics for a tick bite and insisted that I come into the office. At the time my first available day was 5 days out but I was able to rearrange my schedule to come in the next day. I was 15 min. early for my appointment and show to an exam room on time only to wait for over 30min for Dr. Kelly who made no mention of the 30 min. wait let alone apologize. She then proceeded to give me two reason for not prescribing antibiotic over the phone for my tick bite: 1) I might have been bitten by another insect, not a tick, and 2) she also wanted to have a Lyme titer test done. I pulled the tick off myself and not only was it a tick, but it was a dangerous blacklegged tick. The Lyme titer test is notoriously inaccurate for Lyme disease within 1-2 weeks of being bitten. And given that antibiotics are most effective within 72 hours of a tick bite I felt she was dangerously uninformed. At this point I left the exam room as I was dissatisfied with her professionalism and service and on the way out I told the front desk I was not happy and why.
