Five Stars

It's been awhile; as matter of fact, it was in the 90's. To this day, I haven't found a physician who was as thorough as he is.

Great Docto, Nasty Receptionist

Dr. Valentine is a great Doctor and is the only Doctor I truly trust, but after today I am completely heart broken. He has been working with me for my endometriosis. He has been building my case to see a surgeon for a Laparoscopy and told me he was going to have one of the nurses call me by the end of the week, that was 3 weeks ago. I ended up calling him today because my pain has gotten worse and I am now getting pain on my lower back that is shooting up my spine and is causing pain down to my knees and it's causing me to limp. I called to make an appointment to ask about why they haven't called and to add the recent pain I am now having to put with my notes. The front desk receptionist Amanda told me the surgeons information has been on my file for awhile and that we can make an appointment today to see Dr. Valentine today. I then call the surgeon to make an appointment. I get a phone call from Dr.Valentines office 10 minutes later from Amanda who then tells me I can't come in now because I am under the surgeons care so I will never be able to see Dr. Valentine. I then start to cry because I'm so confused as to why he can not be my Doctor anymore. Dr. Valentine stated before that he is my main Gynocolgist and the surgeon is only there just to do the Laparoscopy so if anything comes back then Doctor Valentine and I can discuss different options. But now it sounds like he won't be. I then tell Amanda I don't know what to do now because I'm in so much pain and I refuse to go to the E.R and she responds back with "Call the surgeon back or go to the E.R." she showed zero compassion and has always been nasty ever since I first started seeing Dr. Valentine 3 months ago. She is horrible at returning phone calls, She never relays messages to the Dr, always acts so miserable whenever I see her at the office and even put my address wrong in the system which I had told her I was never getting my bills and gave my address to her again and she responded with "its ok, it will be fine." Thank god another nurse realized it and told me she never fixed it. I now just hope I will be able to trust this surgeon I will be going to but I am kind of nervous because I saw her ratings online and it is showing she only has a 2 star rating out of 5 from 50+ patients.
