I was prompted by the person who gives my son allergy shots that we should come in for a follow up on his allergies. I set up the appointment. That day we then waited over an hour, no acknowledgement or apology was made. I was told there wasn't enough time to re-test. I asked if we could at least start so one test was done. He had no reaction. I was told to return in a year. I was confused as I got very little information that wasn't rushed. I called the office to get a second opinion from another doctor. Dr. Anderson-Cowell's NP returned my call and suggesting I "look online if I want more information". The whole appointment took almost two hours & I was struck by the consistent patronizing attitude.
Dr. Cowell managed to make it to my appointment 1 hr and 10 minutes late (only after I tracked down a nurse in the hallway explaining I needed to get back to work). It was my first time meeting her (I previously saw a doctor in the same office who passed away). No apology on her tardiness whatsoever. She also had a scribe with her taking all of her notes, so I'm not sure why there would be such tardiness since she clearly isn't making the chart notes. I have been going to allergists for 20+ years and never did I feel so unimportant to a doctor. She did not go over the breathing tests the nurse had me do prior to her arrival. No mention of them. Also, she clearly did not review my chart before the appointment as she had no idea of prior history and said she'd request the records (which were already requested and in the file - done by my prior doctor at the same office). I specifically requested my inhaler (which I take daily) be filled in 3 month increments. When I arrived at the pharmacy, this had been sent over as a 1 month prescription. She said maybe my next appointment we could discuss things further when I had more time (time which was wasted WAITING on her). Prepare for a 3 hour slot in your schedule to get your 10 minutes with this "doctor". Even in prescriptions she didn't get it right. I would NEVER recommend her to anyone and do not trust her advice or judgement. Only plus to the appointment was the nice, knowledgeable nurse.
This was the worst experience I ever had with a doctor. If you want a doctor who will give you instructions, expect you to blindly follow and walk out of the room before you get a chance to ask anything, then she is the doctor for you. She spent probably less than 5 minutes in the room with me. Within 30 second she ordered a bunch of allergy tests for me (which they can bill nicely for...) but could not take 5 minutes to explain the results or even give them to me in person. This doctor did not give me enough information to make an informed decision about my health and after two visits I am more confused than when I came in.
