My scheduled appointment wait time every month was 4 to 7 hours. Being sick and having to wait so long to see him was horrible. Dr. Doug and my neurologist could not agree and gave me conflicting medication which made my condition worse. He caters to people he can lock in on narocotic pain meds. I was told by his staff many times, when I ask why the long wait,he was home taking care of his cattle,while his office was full of waiting patients. I was ask to travel between 3 offices for appointments in different communities I counties due to patient overload.

My First Time Meeting

I have always been uncomfortable complaining about anything out loud. I wasn't looking forward to have to going over my condition, but to get better I knew I would have to. Well to my worst night mare I had to do more than just explain. I had to plead and was forced to get x-rays without insurance . Although I had already had recent x-rays and all I had to do was bring them with me to my next appointment. Well the costly x-rays showed exactly what I had said they would. I had never been so out of my comfort level with a Doctor. I have another appointment but I am hesitant to go. He changed my medications the first time he met me with no questions or information about what I was being prescribed. I hope I just caught him on a bad day, I know we all have them. But having good manners, and consideration is not something that should be an issue. I am a low maintenance person, and it doesn't take much to impress me. Just a smile, and a friendly tone would have gone a long way with me. I will gladly retract my review if my next experience is much better. Otherwise I am thinking about dealing with my condition organically.
