Terrible Docter

She was very aggrogent, I gave her a very detailed history and it all went in one ear and our the other. She treated me like I was crazy. She acted like paitents were stupid and a waste of time. Complaing that running test were a waste of time. Acting like I was stupid to even come to see her. My family doc had sent me because of a major attack that looked like ms. She takes one look at me and totally blows me off saying their is no way I could have ms and any testing would be a waste of time. When I told her my family doc wanted me to have a mri, she rolls her eyes and goes well your insurance probably won't pay it because I can't chart ms. Without a doubt one of the worst docs I have ever seen what so ever. She was 45 min late calling me back, her computers were down, the nurse tooked almost a hour to check me in, the doc took over a hour to do a neurological test. She treated me like a special needs child, spending most time asking my wife questions then me. She didn't believe anything I said, reasking the same question 2 or 3 times and giving me this look like I was a liar. Then she spends 30 min talking to me about my daughter, at my appointment. I told her 3 times she doesn't have anything neurological testing and she refused to believe me. She was one of the worst docters I have ever seen. Don't waste your time with her, avoid this doc at all cost. I am currently get a rerefferal.
