Won't Even Make Eye Contact!

Dr. Kizner really means well and seems to want to be a good doctor for his patients. However, I personally get the feeling that I am 'bothering' him even when I am there for an annual exam. He doesn't talk to me while he's doing any procedures. It may just be 'his way' and his personality, but I don't seem to mesh well with him. I am in peri-menopause and he hasn't really talked to me about options and has actually scared me by some of the things he's said...i.e., irregular bleeding could be uterine cancer, etc...instead of scaring me like that, why don't we do some testing first and then you can tell me instead of being so frank up front. I'm not looking for my doctor to be my buddy or my friend, but I do wish that I didn't feel like he was in a hurry to get to his next patient. I also wish that he would explain options to me so that I could make better, more informed decisions. I will be finding a different doctor...I've tried for several years to get into 'his groove', but I just think it's better that I find another doctor. On a positive note, I will say that his staff is friendly and have a good sense of humor.

I really enjoyed seeing Dr. Kizner for my pre-natal visits while pregnant with my son. I especially like his low C-section rate and the fact that he was always willing to listen and answer all my questions thoroughly.
