Husband with stage 4 cancer and rare muscle disease referred to rule out cancer spreading to throat, Dr asked numerous questions, ordered tests and then said ,as we were ready to leave ,oh I should take a look at your throat. Said no need to come back if results are negative for cancer. Based on muscle disease, it was believed swallowing issues were caused by that and not cancer. She was going on vacation and we could get the results over the phone from her office staff. Got results from hospital same day as tests, no cancer. Cancelled follow up appt. as instructed. Approximately two weeks later badgered by office staff calling constantly to come in to review test results, which they also stated about a month after that , they only had one test result and was waiting on the other . Each time being told there was no need to come back and unnecessary to make husband make that trip. They also sent a letter requesting follow up visit. Badgering finally stopped after call to office manager to file complaint, who conviently wasn't available to take my call. I would never reccommend this office due to numerous incompetancies and lack of compassion. Knowing how sick my husband was and after telling them more than once we were not coming back to constantly call and harass. Thank you for causing me added undue stress during our difficult time. Most offices have more than enough patients that they find it difficult to give appointments, apparently this office doesn't have enough to the point where they have to harass and try to badger people to come in.
