Have you seen Dr. Margaret Reiker?
Uncaring, uninterested and unknowledgeable
Posted on June 27th, 2017
I have seen Dr. Reiker for more than eight years and have coped with her shyness and general lack of knowledge about my health and me, in general -- for example, she consistently calls me by the wrong first name. It just seemed easier to stick with her since I haven't had any real issues and changing doctors is always a challenge. Whenever something has developed over the years, she seems vague in her response and how to proceed. Today I needed to speak with her re: lab results which she had ordered. When she finally called, she was very short with me and frustrated and unsure of the results or why I had even had the lab work done. She was extremely impatient when I asked questions and I finally asked if she had to go - to which she replied, "yes!" Ultimately she suggested I see a specialist and basically re-iterated what I diagnosed (which I'm not sure is even the right diagnosis). She was abrupt when I asked for a referral and told me to call the secretary (that's another story as the phone system in her office made me wait 40 minutes to get through and call-backs can take 48 hours). She spent a little over 5 minutes with me on the phone and I have a bleeding issue that at first she said was "a lot" and then "a little." I do not recommend Dr. Reiker. My friend, who referred her to me in the first place, has had similar experiences with her and is definitely finished with her.

Finding a caring and knowledgeable physician is difficult. I've found both with Dr. Reiker. She takes her time and explains things which I appreciate. It can be a bit difficult to get in to see her but when I've had issues needing immediate attention she makes the time. I also appreciate the fact that my longest wait has never been more than 5 or 10 minutes. I'm sticking with Dr. Reiker!
