Specialties

Dr. William Davidson III has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Good in some ways; lacking in others

After upper GI he instructed me to keep taking OTC Ranitdine. But a script is lower cost for Medicare part D patient. So had to call back for a script. A Dr who pays attention to his patients status in life knows this and asks if patient needs a script. While in the office he spent ample time and when asked he would look up questions he couldn't answer on his phone because, he said, he subscribes to an organization that gives him credits toward his medical ongoing education when he uses it. He responded to my letters a couple times by reviewing my file and filling in the blanks and once his nurse called back with his response to my questions point by point. But when you call up with a problem it's doubtful that his nurse writes everything down so when you get a response from the Dr. Via the nurse you don't get an acceptable response. Plus when calling in with a question Dr Davidson doesn't seem to refer back to your file to see what you have already tried which in my case resulted in the same thing he said before which didn't work. When the nurse calls with the results of your radiology report she doesn't tell you everything. Remember on "mygenesis.com" you can read your own radiology reports. He tries...but doesn't always cover everything. And when I compare his care plan of my health issue it doesn't always agree with what I read on pubmed and other medical or .org sites. Like a lot of physicians these days..It seems...you have to do your own research. They ask a ton if questions on all that paperwork you have to fill out but they don't even look at half of it.

RUDE

A bunch of uptight rude people, especially the staff, in person or on the phone. Davidson was even rude to the hospital staff during a procedure I had.

Don't waste your time with this place - Go to University of Iowa (or any where they care)

When we arrived at the Center for Digestive Health in Bettendorf are 2 doors you come to after you walk through the front door. Neither is clearly marked where a new patient would go for their initial consultation appointment. No one was stationed at the front desk when we arrived so we ended up waiting for more than several minutes in the wrong waiting room. To make a long story short, Dr Davidson gave us the impression he didn’t have time to sit with us to listen to symptoms – or spent much time reviewing our records - and as a matter of fact he left the room – we thought to check with his staff about a fax we were expecting, yet he did not return and several times and the nurse had to leave to find him because we still had questions. My husband had already – unintentionally lost over 25 pounds because of his problems swallowing. We asked Dr Davidson if it could be a particular disease, called Acalasia and his response was “I have been doing this for 20 years and I’ve only seen 4 cases of that and it’s only in older people” Maybe had he reviewed the disk with the barium swallow images we brought he would have had a better idea on a diagnosis and we wouldn’t have had to spend more time waiting while my husband got more dehydrated and malnourished. In trying to get Dr Davidson’s office to expedite an appointment with the University of Iowa City I left messages with the nurse at Dr Davidsons office that did not get returned for more than a couple days, the scheduling person, Kelly was just RUDE and snotty. After University of Iowa reviewed my husband records and realized the severity of the situation he was given a pressure test that day to confirm he does in fact have type II achalasia. I wouldn’t recommend this Dr or any Dr that can’t take the time to listen to his patients or care enough to review the information they provide.
