Can not get appointment

With great deal of frustration, I write my words here. You see, I am a patient of Dr Torrens for the past 4 years. Recently and for the past three weeks, I have been trying to set up my yearly appointment without any success. I always get directed to office voice mail requesting to leave my name and a message stating that a staff member will get back to me. Well I am sure you guessed that no one did call. This is really a joke and should not be happening in the US. But after all our health system is in shamble and doctor are still the highest overpaid professionals in the nation.

Dr. Torrens is a micromanager and control freak. He doesn't trust patients (even long time, healthy, well educated patients) to care for themselves outside his office. His methods are unorthodox and sometimes ineffective, but he is too arrogant and stubborn to admit when something isn't working, even if it would be in the patient's best interest to do so.

Doctor's Response

Not sure what evidence there is for this given I follow evidence based medicine and I am clear with instructions -
