Not impressed and still have no answer.

Easy to make an appointment...long wait to see Doctor. Almost 3 hrs late. 5 minute visit and he has yet to call my doctor regarding report that was sent. Drive through burger takes longer than my appointment did.

Jumped To Conclusions

I found Dr. Cartwright to be unprofessional, rushed and quick to assume the cause of my problem with very little examination. I have a 40 year history of back and abdominal muscle problems that he had no interest in hearing about, and wouldn't discuss or even acknowledge my questions . He spent less than 2 minutes with me before he told me I had a pinched nerve and would need surgery. After an MRI, he left a 30 second voice message with no detail other than my spine was abnormal, I probably don't need surgery, I might want a steroid shot and his nurse would know what to do. I still don't have the slightest idea what's abnormal, what the ramifications may be and how a steroid shot would change anything. A nurse later told me he only works on spines, and maybe he's okay if YOU already know that's your problem, but I want a doctor who doesn't work backwards from the solution he wants.

I am very pleased with Dr. Cartwright, have seen him many times. He is so pleasant and friendly and will take time to discuss whatever I need to. For some unknown reason, the wait time has become very long (3 hours in lobby and then 1 hour in the exam room). I went to one of the other doctors there on a different date and had to wait about 2 1/2 hours in the lobby.
