Not for everyone..

In my experience with Dr.Himmelreich.. He's not a warm and fuzzy people person. He's way too nervous and timid for my tastes. In my first encounter many years ago, his apparent knowledge or lack thereof, odd communication skills and wacky sense of humor made me nervous to the point of wanting to bolt for the door. Looking back, I wish I had ! Part way through the exam,he excused himself from the exam room. When a nurse walked in,through the open door, I saw him across the hall cramming through a book..for a SIMPLE procedure.. I swear he was in the next room reading a "Medical Procedures For Dummies" Book !When he returned, he attempted and botched the procedure, and caused me a great deal of unnecessary pain. To me, that is NOT a forgivable offense for a Doctor, he should have excused himself. His somewhat odd personality isn't for everyone, he comes across like the semi mad research scientist in a white lab coat. His personal style reminds me more of how Christopher Lloyd would play a Doctor in a movie than a real life professional physician. He's been there for years and years, but still seems as nervous as a first year Doctor.Not a confidence inspiring guy in my experience..Definitely not the first pick in this group were there are some bright stars..
