I made an appointment with Dr. Smith over a month ago and received a confirmation of my appointment 3 days ago. Today I got a phone call that she won't see me because I was a patient in the past (with another gynecologist at the practice) and she does not accept patients who have left to see other doctors. My appointment was to be in 3 days from today and I am in pain. I explained that I had never seen Dr. Smith before and it did not matter. "Dr. Smith does not see patients who have left to see other doctors...it is her steadfast rule." Dr. Smith does not care who I am, why I left the practice (another doctor) in the past, what's wrong with me now, or that I have been waiting to see her for over a month. Her behavior is unethical and unprofessional. I am extremely offended and hurt.
I don't understand the Dr's review. I've been to many doctors over the years since I am in my mid 50's and she is by far the most gentle, caring doctor I've been to. Her office also does bone density tests and mammograms giving your one-time visit an opportunity to cover several tests in one visit. The staff is very nice and eager to help with any questions you may have. I entered one day with a high blood pressure reading and a nurse pulled me aside upon leaving to take it again to be sure it had dropped. I have no complaints whatsoever about this office and would recommend them highly.
