He was the on call Dr that responded to what for me was a serious issue. He was a condescending arrogant jerk that talked down to me like I was a child. It was incredibly offensive and insulting. I don't know what they're teaching in med school these days, but the arrogance is ridiculous, I want a doctor, I don't need a parent. Because I called him on his condescending & disrespectful behavior towards me HE HUNG UP ON ME! What a jerk.
Horrible patient/doctor manners. Talks down to his patient. Does not listen to patients history of his own body and experiences. I took my wife with me on my second visit and she witnessed his condescending remarks. My illness got worst after my first visit because he would not prescribe antibiotics to ward off an impending infection. A week later my health and ability to do my job was put in jeopardy. Only cares about his own EGO.. Unless you want a doctor with a GOD complex, I would stay away!
If any of you are tired of going to the same ole Dr. that doesn't pay attention to detail or listen to you, I suggest scheduling an appointment Dr. Tim Swofford and give him a try. The reason I made the switch is because I was exhausted of not getting the answers I really needed from my previous Dr.'s and Dr. Swofford does what most Dr.'s don't......listen. Then he will hone in on what your symptoms are (and based on what you tell him) and act with a great deal of focus. It also doesn't hurt that he's easy to talk to no matter what you may be in to see him for. I would recommend Dr. Swafford's services to anyone seeking great health care with results.
