Horrible Doctor

Worst experience I have ever had with a doctor. She would not listen to my problems, and tried to dismiss every symptom I had as not being anything serious. Me and my wife stormed out of the doctors office furiously because of her rudeness. I do not recommend.

Very Effective

After reading some of the other reviews, I can surely understand where trhe negative comments come from, because Dr. Harstine does have a quirky personality. I have been under her care as a diabetic for almost ten years, and have gotten to know her a bit better. I have noticed that those who disrespect her to her face get a rather withering response. Just saying. I have found her to be very knowledgeable and effective as far as I let her, because I am a poor patient when it comes to diet and exercise. She lets me know that she is unhappy with me for that, and I appreciate the honesty. Some have said they think she doesn't care about them or their needs. I believe she does, but she does not show it in the extravagant manner some seem to require. Just as an example, Dr. Harstine put me on an injectable hormone called Symlin. It comes in pen form and is expensive. I normally inject from bottles, so I have plenty of needles available. The pens always waste a small amount of the fluid at the end - they do not finish pumping it out. The Symlin pen is no different. She warned me not to pull out that last little amount and use it because the dosage was far different than the unit calibrations on the needles and I'd be taking way too much. She knew I was a cheap so and so, and that I was willing to tinker, and that was just the sort of thing I'd try to save a buck. So she put a stop to that right away. I'd say she knew me fairly well to be able to forsee that, and that she cared. She no longer works for Galichia and has opened her own practice at 3223 N Webb Rd Ste 3 Wichita, KS 67226 (316) 609-3030 So take what you will from what I wrote. I trust her, my other doctors trust her, my famlly likes her, and I appreciate having her around.

One Star

If you have parathyroid problems, I would definitely suggest you find a different doctor. I had already developed osteoporosis because of my hyperparathyroidism. My calcium and parathyroid blood counts were high, but a sonogram was negative. Because the sonogram was negative, she wanted me to just come back in six months. (I had read online that it is common for sonograms to be negative.) I went home, called my family doctor and asked to be referred elsewhere. My family doctor got me in to see a different endocrinologist. This doctor sent me to consult with a surgeon the day of my appointment. I had surgery and feel so much better. One of my parathyroid glands was 4 times the normal size and was not where it should have been located (surgeon had to hunt for it). Had I stayed with Dr. Harstine I don't know what would have happened.

Great depth of knowledge....if you stay under her care as a diabetic she will help you prevent many of the renal/neuropathy issues the many long term pts. have.
