Great doctor!!! The best!!
I have going to Dr Countryman since I moved to Iowa 23 years ago - She always takes time to listen to me or answer any questions I may have - I received a bad test result when I was 23 and she called me personally and had me come in so we could talk more about my next step of action . After I had my visit with specialist and surgery she called to see how I was doing . I usually only see her once a year for a physical unless I need to like the time I got bitten by a brown recluse spider while camping last summer yikes or when my father died and my neice died of cancer and she helped me with temporary anxiety/depression medication . I like that she doesn't prescribe pills so easily like other doctors are known to do . I have been nothing but happy with her all these years , Honestly don't know what I will do when she retires be hard to find someone as good as she is . Well she says I have ten more years before I have to worry about that :o) Thank You Dr Countryman for your kindness and patience all these years !
Dr. Countrymen HAS NO CLUE WHAT SHE IS DOING. She was giving me sample's of birth control and never EVER EVER once did the blood test for your liver to make sure the birth control is not hurting your liver and guess what??? Now I am on a liver transplant list and I had to have half of my liver removed because of the samples of the birth control that she was giving me. The birth control caused cyst on my liver and when I had part of my liver removed the doctor's told me I could have died at anytime, and I still can. I had been seeing her for over 15yrs so I trusted her. I thought she knew what she was doing. And I also found out that she has been sued before by people because of things like this. And she is also been kicked out of working at nursing homes I would not send my worst enemy to go and see her. Find another doctor. IF you don't listen to me you may be facing the same things as Iam and I really hope that no one else goes through something like this the pain I have every single day in un believeable I would do anything to turn back time and go see some one else and I would have paid for the birth control but she told me that she knew how my money was tight and I did not have any Insurance so I did not think that what she was giving me would hurt me. And she never EVER gave me the same kind of Birth control it always a different brand. And when I would ask her about doing a liver testing she always said " you are fine because you look healthy" WOW. I guess I was not healthy huh KIM????
