He will not renew prescriptions unless you see him, which can be so inconvenient at times. I had made an appointment to renew prescriptions but it was on a Monday and I got to work on Monday and it totally slipped my mind. I called to reschedule and when I showed up for that appt. he was still at the hospital and would not be in for another hour, which I understand but they should have called me. So I had to reschedule again and when I showed up for that appt. they wanted my $15.00 copay and $25.00 no show charge. I paid the copay but told them at the desk that I would like to talk to Dr. Rigby about the no show charge since he was a no show for me too and I had driven there to the office. I went to wait in the waiting area and they called me up to the front desk after ten minutes of sitting in waiting area to say they had to reschedule my appt because there was not enough time and that he would not take off the $25.00 no show charge. I told her I did not feel good and I needed to see the doctor and they kept telling me I had to reschedule until I mentioned that I would pay the no show fee. Well I did see him just because I was not feeling well and was given an antibiotic but I will not be back.
My husband and I have seen Dr. Rigby for about 5 years and are now switching to a different doctor. We have been going to the Kent office and have had several bad experiences at that location. The women who handle the front desk are often rude on the phone when you call to make an appointment. There are several times that I've waited 45 minutes to an hour past my scheduled appointment before seeing the doctor. Last time I went, I had to take a simple urine sample and was told to wait in the waiting room for the results. 70 minutes later I went to the desk to see where the heck the results were and she said, "Oh I didn't think you were still here! Let me check on that." Dr. Rigby is very knowledgeable and provides accurate information. He just doesn't get to know his patients- I've seen him at least 8 times for the same problem and everytime he acts as though it's my first visit. I have to remind him of my history each time. The breaking point for us was when my husband needed his blood pressure medication refilled, and Dr. Rigby said that he would not refill it until he was able to see him in person. My husband had just started a new job and was unable to get an appointment for 3 weeks- he explained this to the woman on the phone who said she would double check with the doctor. She called my husband back and confirmed that he would not provide a refill- not even for 3 weeks until he was able to get in to see him. Does that sound like good patient care to you? My husband had terrible headaches everyday that he didn't have his medication, and said he was done with that doctor.
