Dr. King spends a lot of time with you as the patient. He personally is the one who makes your treatment time with him very valuable and has the physical therapy as part of his visit NOT in addition to his visit with you. Fully paid by insurance not an additional physical therapy expense - because this is the kind of physician he is - physical a physiatrist. He takes time either initially with you going over all that matters in your personal care. Then as he directs, physical therapy and his visit is a combined time with the one doctor visit cost. For instance, I was seen by Dr Val King as part of the rheumatoid arthritis debilitating circumstances with the physical therapy for 30 minutes prior to seeing Dr. King. He is known for being the best physician in the western area for adjustments and rehabilitative care. Dr King does not work as a general care physician, but a very skilled Physiatrist who is a Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation specialist. He knows fellow physicians having worked with them for many years as he was head-lead doctor for the Hospital Rehabilitation center in contact with the best physicians. He is a good listener and is able to make sound decisions regarding the kind, type, amount, and what length of treatment or treatments may be the best in each person's health. He is also willing to personally write letters needed for other agencies/physicians and is very good at how much and how often you are to visit with him, the physical therapist, and so forth. He is NOT an emergency care physician. However, he has given emergency treatment in situations that warranted such immediate medical attention. Individualized medical care and treatment. No long wait times. Once arrive and check in at the office window seen immediately or once or twice had a 15 minuet wait. Dr King calls his own patients back to visit with him and the physical therapist working with you calls you to work with them. No office person telling you to sit in a room, close the door, and forget you are there for hours on end! Very personable and individual health care.
Sometimes I would have a short wait (10 min) but other times up to 40 min. He seemed like he had more important things to do and never spent more than a few minutes after all that time waiting to see him. He was never able to completely diagnose my problem, but then he never did anything but ask questions. Never any type of physical testing. I might as well have used Google or WebMD. It would have been a lot cheaper.
Dr. King seems skilled at chiropractic adjustments but has some significant shortcomings. One is that he seems to be rather poor at providing information on possible drug side effects â I ended up in a hospital due to an almost complete lack of information from him regarding a drug he had prescribed. Also, he seems to let his ego get in the way of patient care. I was his patient for multiple years and he occasionally commented that I was a great patient â I believe he said that as I was conscientious about strictly following his orders. Yet, when I suggested that I wanted to get a second opinion he suddenly and without explanation fired me as a patient. The second opinion I sought and received from another doctor (including tests that Dr. King had never run) showed some significant âmissesâ by Dr. Valton King.
