Bedside manner stinks

Dr. Placer is the most unprofessional doctors I have come across. His office will cancel appointments a couple of days before and just has no cares regarding people's health. He is rude and all he would like to do is pass out injections with out really trying to find out the problem. His wait times are long. I have sat in a room for over 15 minutes and he was talking to a woman that was not a patient.

Spent no time with me

He never did a physical exam, never spent more than 3 minutes in the room with me, just wanted to do injections and give prescriptions. Not helpful.

Two Stars

Doesn't take vitals, I'm on several medications including a narcotic. Spends less then 8 minutes with me on average. Shows little care and first tried a medication that had interactions with every other med I was on. It caused burns on my body (Butrans pain patch). Never felt my muscles to see how badly the muscles were contracted.

Disappointed

This doctor is in a rush. Tells you what he thinks and that's that. I was referred to his office by a doctor whose experience I valued. After arriving at the surgery center I waited almost 2 hours. Dr Placer was late. After my procedure he disappeared. I wanted to know which steroid and the dosage he used in my facet joint injections but there was no record found. I requested the info from the nurse who called me from the surgery center the next day but she called me back and referred me to Dr Placer's office. All I was able to do was leave a message and I did, detailing exactly what I wanted to know. I've not received a call. A doctor who has not a moment to return calls will NOT have my money.
