Dr. Fairchild was recommended to us for the specific parathyroid procedure we were having. He did not disappoint!! He was VERY knowlegable , everything took place exactly how he said it would - he took the time to explain EVERYTHING - we didn't feel rushed with him. Awesome bedside manner and a GREAT sense of humor during a tense time!!
Dr Fairchild introduced himself and listened to my symptoms. He did a quick physical exam and an equally quick, yet accurate, diagnosis. He then discussed why he did not recommend surgery, what I should monitor, what the next step would be, and when I should return for a follow up appointment. I thought he was very professional, competent, and efficient, while taking the time needed to adequately explain his care. I feel very satisfied with the care I received.
Let me set the stage. I was sent to the ER by my family physician for the ringing in my ears, since he wanted to ensure all tests were run. The ER in turn sent me to see a doctor in this office. I was unfortunately assigned to Dr. Fairchild. I entered the room, gave him the quickest example of the issues I was having, almost couldn't tell him the symptoms before he was interrupting me with a his opinion. He then proceeded to look at my throat, ears and nose. Now we are 4 minutes into the visit...I was trying to ask questions in relation to what I was taking, and he immediately said that had nothing to do with it, go set up an appointment with the balance team. Came back to see him again, since it was booked out 2 weeks to discuss my medication I was currently taking and if that could potentially be the cause. He basically stated that I was a hypochondriac and he was not going to prescribe me any medication, which was fine, since I wasn't asking to be prescribed anything...I was asking if the medication that the hospital and my personal doctor put me on could be a contributor to the ringing. He is the most unprofessional doctor I have ever gone to see. I was rushed in and out, treated like I had a problem, unrelated to why I came and made to feel like an idiot and that I was wasting his time.
