worthless dr who leaves misleading info in pt chart

went to him, as he was in the same office i had seen dr ford at. was looking for new primary as dr ford left think. took my list of meds with me and he wrote in my chart that i had a "drug seeking addiction. just had back surgery, so kinda doubt that i have a drug seeking problem. this guy needs to take a class on ethics, and yes do plan to report him to CHI as well of board of meds.. i was told by another dr i could go after him for slander for putting that in my report.. such a loser of a dr... like i said before would not take dog to see him

I have had 2 knee surgeries with Dr. Connolly in the last couple of years and would not consider going to anyone else. He is efficient as well as thorough and has an excellent attitude. He is open to questions as is his staff, to ensure that I felt fully informed. I have a third surgery scheduled with him this year and would recommend him to anyone needing orthopedic work.

Wow, a Dr. that will listen .

I have seen Dr. C.for rotator cuff surgery, knee scope, and cortisone shots these past few yrs. and I will keep going back as needed. The staff is excellent and pleasant and even though a patient, you're a person also. Remember, the Dr, and staff are also people..

Felt like I was an inconvenience

First appointment was made for right after he got back from an appointment. I do not recommend doing that, felt like he was still not completely back from his holiday. His exam was over rather quickly, They didn't even make a record of the injection he gave me in my knee. this led to a couple calls from the insurance company handling my claim insisting i go get this injection again. Three phone calls and two days later we had it figured out. I do have say on my 3rd or 4th visit I did receive a more in depth exam. This exam was not from Dr. Connolly but his assistant. He asked more questions and he actually listened to what i was saying and answered my questions in a way that when i left the office i didn't feel more helpless and confused than when i went in. I found this site by accident today while looking for another doctor. Had to leave a comment, i don't normally, Maybe it will help him if he cares at all. 2 stars, i gave an extra star for the support staff at this office, they were nice.
