Unnecessary Examinations/Costs

I went to Dr. Chamberlain with specific concerns and although he was a little poor on bedside manner, he explained to me that he would get to the bottom of the issue. Little did I know that it would be 20 (no joke) examinations with the lingering possibility of an invasive procedure. As a healthcare student, looking back, I do not know why all these examinations were ordered. In addition to all of this, I had to call LabCorp directly to get my test results as no one at the office gave me the lab results (which were originally promised). When I realized that the doctor's notes were not sent to my PCP, I discovered that Dr. Chamberlain was no longer at MCG. I found it very unprofessional and disrespectful that he and his office staff did not have the courtesy to let their patients know this information. I spent many phone calls to try and retrieve my information and find a new gastroenterologist. I eventually found a new specialist who was very against the "money making" tactic of ordering a bunch of tests and used his CLINICAL JUDGEMENT to come up with a diagnosis. Overall, I feel very disappointed. The only thing I left with is an empty pocket and disappointment in this service.

Excellent Physician

What he lacks in personality, he more than makes up for in intelligence. I could not have asked for better care after my colorectal cancer diagnosis.

Having big doubts, very disapointed

He seems in a hurry. My daughter has been quite sick and on first meeting we set up a colonoscopy as expected. Post colonoscopy in recovery he seemed not to remember how sick she has been and would not commit to treatment till the biopsies are back. We are now 8 days waiting for a call. He promised to call mid week.(which would be 5 days). We are trying to keep her in grad school but if she continues this sick it may not be possible. TheTrinity office just says they don't have results wait till Tuesday. That will be 12 days. The GRU number is to the endoscopy lab and they say he dosen't have a voice mail. So diagnosis and treatment yet to be learned. The first appointment to set up colonoscopy was a month ago-granted it was the holidays so harder to schedule the colonoscopy. But there is no sense of urgency on his part. It looks like we will have to try another doctor.

No comfrotable with

He doesn't look you in the eye, arrogant, no bedside manner. Found a new doctor. Dealilng with GRU is a pain. My daughter went to him and he acted the same way to her. He may have knowledge but I look for knowledge and bedside manner. I walk away from him feeling awful

Patient

Worst doctor I've ever gone to. Also, worst staffing. Doctor had be go to surgery costing thousands of dollars. Surgery didn't work. I then moved and saw another doctor. Doctor gave me some pills to take once a day and my stomach issue went away. No unnecessary surgery involved and cost ~100 dollars for the visit. Doctor from new location requested I get my patient records to have on hand. When calling MCG multiple times, they said they have never heard of me! When they finally do discover I was a patient that paid thousands of dollars....they say they will get my records. It's been a year and still no record! NOTE: I'm still paying may thousands of dollar medical bill off...the one that wasn't needed at all!
