fast service (what I want for my fast food, not a doctor)

I took my daughter to see Dr. Silvers for the first time today. We didn't have much choice because the dermatologist I see doesn't take patients under 18, but he is terrific. Dr. Silvers was in & out with us within 5 minutes. My daughter is 12, she could have been kind. A smile or a 'nice to meet you' would have went a long way. She looked my daughter's face very quickly and said this is what I think it is, wrote down some stuff to buy & was gone. She did not explain what the condition is, do we have to use this stuff forever... nothing! I'm just going to hope she is right on her diagnosis & the stuff works. In the meantime, I will have to study online to find out more about this condition. Also, the girls in the office were talking loud enough that we could hear their discussion. It was about abortion & I really feel that is a subject that is very controversial & should not be spoken about in a business setting where people can hear. As far as wait time, we were in right on time, but it's no wonder if she only takes 5 minutes per person.

No Bedside Manners, No Manners Period

When Tangoren left Ithaca, I went to Silvers for dysplastic nevus syndrom, aka weird moles. She'd rather read in her office than show up for her first appointment on time. She schedules so much work that each appointment has to be handled faster than a pit stop in a motor race. Her surgery is very well done, her sutures tidy, but her office is disorganized and her continuity from previous procedures to current visit a drastic failure. When she left Ithaca for Horseheads, her office repeatedly failed to get my records forwarded. Wonder how her Horseheads patients like her?
