While the medication provided for my arthritis appears to be working, I was disappointed in the doctor's beside manner. She seemed to interrupt me alot when I was telling her about my overal medical history. Once I came in office and she had someone in training in the room with her. When I repeated something she had told me in a prior visit before telling her my reaction to what she had told me, she cut me off and said she had never said what I had quoted.
After seeing my primary for sudden onset symptoms and having my CRP test come back at level 63,i was eager to see a specialist to help me understand what is happening to my body. The Dr. Kheshgi's PA is impersonal and rude...more than once questioned my timelines with suspicion, interrupted, wouldn't allow me to speak unless spoken to. She made me feel very uncomfortable to be there at all. I was there for two hours and saw Dr. Kheshgi for 10 minutes. They never got the records from my primary and ignored my reported symptoms altogether and never even mentioned the CRP count. She prescribed me muscle relaxers and told me to take Tylenol. She also ordered every blood test on the sheet. My primary even gave me anti-inflammatories and hydrocodone for the pain. Needless to say, I was at my Primary's office the next day in tears. I finally get a call from someone named Brittany saying that Dr. K. says I'm anemic, which is what i reported to them myself. When i asked about the blood tests, she said, "that is all she told me to tell you." WHAT? I am more confused about what is going on than ever...this doctor is TERRIBLE and her PA needs to soften up. Neither one of them care about their patients - or maybe it was just me.There are many doctors in this group...pick any one of them but this one. I will continue my search for an answer.
