I rated accurate diagnosis as poor because I had blood work and a paps mean exactly one month ago and still have not received the results. I called the office yesterday and was told a nurse would call me back. I never received a call back. I called today and was told that yesterday they were "Slammed" and that is why nobody returned my call yesterday. She said there is a note in my folder saying I called and a nurse will call me just as soon as she can but it will most likely be at the end of the day. I never received that call. This was my first visit to Dr. Behan. He seems like a good doctor. I am very upset and angry that his staff evidently does not feel that this patient is worthwhile enough to provide me with the results of my lab work from a month ago. Since his office staff does not follow up and he obviously does not follow up with his staff to find out if they have followed up with the patients I will not be returning as a patient.
Worst decision I've ever made. Dr. Behan has no sense of his patients time . I've have come and waited an hour and thirty minutes with no remorse from him. He doesn't listen to the patient. Everytime I talk to him it goes in one ear and out the other which allows him to state the exact same statement I've previously said. I have to constantly ask him about my lab results instead of him being forthcoming with the results. He is a very poor doctor treats his patients as a number and not a human being. I've seen Dr. Behan every two weeks since I was 26 weeks and now every week he still doesn't remember saying "He's measuring big". It's very frustrating when you feel like your doctor doesn't know what he is talking about. He gave me two different dates and went with a dates when I was eight weeks pregnant from results of another hospital. I tell him about the extreme pain I'm in to the point I can barely walk and he says that's normal. I'm so ready for this experience to be over I would never recommend anyone I know to go to him.
Dr. Behan is an NFP-only gynecologist. He spends as much time with each patient as needed, and he really listens. He was the only doctor who suggested a particular test that I needed, and this may very well have saved my life. NOTE: Dr. Behan, as a practicing Catholic, does not do contraception. There are women who travel far for his unique practice, so people who want contraception can go to the 99.9% of OB/GYN's who presribe it, but that's not what Dr. Behan does.
Good doctor and can tell he cares however it's unfortunate on how his staff could be so disorganized. took me 8 calls to make an appointment because no one would pick up or never heard back after i left a message. the reason i was persistent because he was the only pro life doctor known of at that time. however found out there are others now. furthermore, when i would leave messages for the nurse or assistant did not receive call backs until I bothered them so much. the staff as a whole could get some training on patient care and promptness or should should hire an operations manager to oversee everything.
