My gyn had retired, and I was referred to Dr Neumann. I won't go into the whole story, especially how unprofessional and mean the staff were to me. She absolutely brutalized me during the exam. She hurt me soo much I was sliding towards the other end of the table. She said there was an issue, but the sonogram machine was somewhere else, so if she was this concerned about what could be wrong, you'd think I could get a sonogram immediately. When I went to the waiting area to make an appointment for this, the staff were on the phone and I stood there 15 minutes. Until, I just walked out. I am feeling so uncomfortable due to her exam, I don't know what to do. She hurt me so much, I will never ever go to her and or recommend her
Dr. Neumann is a great doctor, she takes her time with patients and cares about them. My issue is with the staff - mainly a woman named Connie. Beware of this woman, she is the most irresponsible and uncaring person I've met at a doctor's office to date. I had to call the office and ask to speak to her on several occasions because she is the one in charge of scheduling surgery. If I didn't call, she could never be bothered to give me the dates of my surgery - and I say dates because Dr. Neumann broke her arm back in May and I've been on hold for my surgery ever since, and it's now December. The last time I spoke with Connie she told me not to worry, that she would call me back the next day. She never did. She had the nerve to tell me one time when I complained that she was very busy and didn't have time to call me. Informing patients about their surgery is part or her job - so she was so busy doing her job she couldn't do her job?! Horrible, horrible uncaring person. I hope Connie sees this so she knows how uncaring and unfit she is to work there. I'm switching doctors because while Dr. Neumann is wonderful, her staff (namely Connie) is far from it.
I have always liked this doctor and thought she was knowledgeable and informative as well as courteous and thorough. My recent experience has made me livid. I had a biopsy done over 3.5 weeks ago and I have been calling the office for 3 days now waiting for her to call me with the results. this is unacceptable for and doctor!
She is a fabulous doctor and I've trusted her for almost 20 years! Having said that though, I am now planning on getting pregnant in the near future and can not have a doctor whose staff is truly incompetent. The staff for as long as I can remember have been rude, unwilling to please and just discourteous. While planning a family I have no room in my life to tolerate such a staff. It's a shame that I had to leave this practice as the doctor is great!
I'm currently pregnant, and absolutely love Dr. Neuman. She is patient, kind, caring. I would recommend everyone to her! She always calls my husband into the room when doing the sonogram, and she always updates him, and ask if he has any questions. She is just truly an amazing doctor and person! I'm so lucky I found her!
