Won't See Her Again

I've tried to like this doctor and have visited her over the last few years for my annual physicals and a couple minor things. In fact, I gave her a positive review on this site a few years ago, but my opinion of her has changed drastically since that review and I agree with the majority of reviews on this site. I will now be switching doctors as I have finally tired of how this doctor seems to rush in & out of the exam room and how she doesn't seem to want to listen to what I have to say or to questions I want to ask her. She always seems to be in a rush to leave the room rather than actually listening and answering my questions. And when she does stay long enough to listen, she gives very brief, and often unhelpful, responses as though her focus is elsewhere. My last straw was during my last appointment - at this appointment, I told her my mother was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and so I am especially concerned about this since I am female. Rather than discussing my concerns with me, she basically brushed off my mother's diagnosis as though I have nothing to be concerned about. Then she rushed out of the room. I was extremely upset at this visit. I'm done with this doctor.

Good Doctor

Dr. Doorenbos has always been attentive and thoughtful in her approach to my visits. I feel like she ponders what I have to say and asks questions. Her bedside manner is excellent, in my opinion. I always feel like she has an interest in helping me and that's what we want in a doctor. She runs a little late, but I haven't met a doctor that doesn't. Follow ups are done online unless there is something she needs to address with bloodwork, etc., which also seems normal for this day and age.

Searching for a new doctor

We had an amazing P.A. at North Clinic until she took a position elsewhere. So, we decided to try Dr. Doorenbos. 4 simple words: we won't go back. Finding the right doctor is a personal accomplishment and one that only helps when it comes to an individual's well-being. Dr. Doorenbos was rude. Not only that, but I wished I had read these reviews before scheduling my appointment as it would have saved me time and frustrations.

Dr. that doesn't listen

I went to see Dr. Doorenbos for a routine physical. I feel that anything I told her went in one ear and straight out the other. She was rude and seemed very distracted. I will not be going back to see her and don't recommend her to anyone.

One Star

Was in for a physical, and had a terrible chest cough and asked her to listen to my lungs to make sure it wasn't anything serious as I had this cough for >3 weeks. Supposedly listened to my lungs, did not say anything in response to that. Next day decided to go to Park Nicollet Urgent Care, where I was diagnosed with a very severe case of pneumonia. I cannot believe that she missed diagnosing me, especially since my case was so progressive. I called her office to leave a message with her RN, never heard a word back. Definitely will not be seeing her again, and beyond her missing my diagnosis, she had no bedside manner or personality to speak of.
