POOR COMMUNICATION AND FOLLOW UP
Self-verified patient of Dr. Neil P Phelan - Posted on April 10th, 2014
My first encounter with Dr Phelan was pleasant. He seemed to have my best interest at heart. He listened to what I had been experiencing in the past four years. It wasn't long before he recommended a so called Miracle Drug that would solve my problem He called the local pharmacy and put in an order for the drug. Instead of recommending a limited supply he prescribed the medication that cost over $100,00, It did not take long before I knew I could not tolerate this drug. It was actually making me sick and yet I had a great supply which would have taken me a month to finish. For sometime I have been involved with the Crones/Colitis Foundation. After calling them I found out the drug he had given me was not approved at all by the foundation. I immediately called the office to speak to the doctor but as usual I could not reach him so left a voice mail for his nurse telling her that I would no longer be taking the medication. Shortly afterwards the doctor(his first call) called and we had a discussion. I made it clear what the foundation had informed me and requested he prescribe another suitable,approved drug. He was not happy nor did he approve of another, Later that same afternoon I received a call from my pharmacy telling me that a prescription had been ordered but it was not yet available. I told them that I would NOT be in ever to pick up any medication. Once again there was no communication from the doctor as what the drug was nor the name of the drug. I am thorougly discusted with him and would never, ever recommend anyone to go to him.I not only spent time but money 0N THE drug that had to be discarded. I truly question his patient care and interest, Now I am searching for another gastrinerologist who has the best interest of the patient at heart, Would I recommend him to a friend or family member? ABSOLUTELY NOT
