I know I am not a doctor, and he is the "specialist". However, I am not going to immediately begin putting chemicals/nuclear medication in my body just because he recommended it. What happened to trying other treatment recommendations first before going so extreme. By his tone and his response, he was not too happy when told him that his recommendation to take medication is not option until all other treatment options (non chemical) have explored. Even if I have to start see another doctor.
I have been going to Dr, B, for a year because there is no one else around to go to, Maybe I will be able to find someone else now that I have changed insurance plans. He does not like me to talk at all. He wants to do all the talking. He doesn't ask anything. He TELLS me what the blood tests show. He TELLS me what to do with no explanation as to why. This last time that I saw him was the first time that he let ME talk because I pushed through in order to tell him that I was going to have an operation and I wanted to know if there was anything I should do differently with my medications. He told me what needed to be done but when I asked for clarification, he looked at me as if I were a dunce and did not clarify anything. Now I am going to have to ask him again for the surgeon doing the surgery - maybe I will ask the surgeon's office to do the asking. I just can't imagine why he became a doctor. Maybe he was nicer when he first started his practice because if he was the way he is now, bitter and completely unfeeling and uncaring, no one would ever have gone back to him for a second visit. Also, it has rubbed off to his staff or maybe they just don't like working with him, but they are not very compassionate either.
I was referred to Dr Biesbroeck for my son. One of his billing staff accused me of "insurance fraud" because I told her we did not use his AHCCCS medical benefits. Then she said "he shouldn't qualify" for them if we don't use them. What kind of people talk to patients and parents like this? Since I work full time, he is covered by my insurance through my work and by Medicare. Until I quit or retire, that's the way it will be. I have also had the same problems I read about regarding difficulty making appointments, actaully talking to the nurse to get prescriptions renewed, and phone calls not returned. I am definitely looking for a new endocrinologist just because of his staff..
I CAN NOT GET THIS OFFICE TO DO MY MAIL ORDER RX CORRECTLY NOR CAN I EVER TALK TO A PERSON! HIS NURSE IS NICE BUT NEVER RETURNS CALLS REGARDING MEDS. DR. B. USED TO BE NICE, NEVER REALLY TOO CONCERNED, GIVES YOU THE LAB RESULTS, DON'T TAKE TIME TO LISTEN AND THIS LAST VISIT HE CHEWED ME OUT BECAUSE MY HUSBAND COULDN'T REMEMBER WHAT MEDS NEEDED FILLED AND TOLD HIM TO ASK ME (SAME DAY, SAME APPT TIME) WHEN I COULDN'T REMEMBER FAST ENOUGH TO SUIT HIM HE WAS RUDE AND CONDESENDING. ALSO DUE TO MEDICARE AND INSURANCE RULES PHARMACIES HAVE TO HAVE ALL RX'S CALLED OR FAXED IN AT THE SAME TIME FOR DIABETES MEDS SO THAT THEY CAN BE COVERED UNDER ONE COPAY, HE REFUSES, HE WILL EMAIL IN THE INSULIN ONLY AND HIS NURSE HAS TO DO THE OTHERS SO THEREFORE MAIL ORDER PHARMACY CONSIDERS THEM TO BE SEPARATE. I SPECIFICALLY ASK HIM TO CALL IN VIALS OF MY INSULINE AND NOT THE PIN NEEDLES THIS TIME, HE IGNORED ME AND SENT THE RX IN WITH JUST THE NAME AND AMOUNT OF MEDS AND INSURE SENT WHAT THEY NORMALLY HAD SENT. I'D LOVE TO FIND A NEW ENDO BUT WHERE!!! I MAY HAVE TO TRAVEL TO PHOENIX.
