Self-verified patient of Dr. Mark E Allara - Posted on August 1st, 2012
I have been a patient for over 15 years...now that the practice has grown and the office has multiple doctors, I feel like just a number. Only see Dr. Allar one time a year, if I call with something he is never available...have to see the Nurse Practioner, if I want care. My yearly physical used to be about 20-30 minutes...consisted of a 5-10 minute conversation, 10-15 minute exam, he discussed his accessment and make recommendations. My last physical (2012) was all of about 10 minutes... lots of small talk...when I mentioned a few issues I didn't feel like he cared. I was sent to lab for the standard blook work up... Then I received a standard draft fill in the blanks letter about 7-10 days later with blood work test results. With regards to prescriptions - the electronic request always have an issue... after 3-4 times, I now leave the office with a hard copy of the prescription to save myself the time/aggravation of getting to the pharmacy and the pharmacist telling me they do not have a prescription.I am looking for a new primary care doctor!
