Two Stars

My Aunt was taken into Chelsea ER. And from the very beginning she was treated POORLY. She was yanked from the vehicle she was transported in. Then while in the wheelchair the person from the hospital whom yanked her out of the vehicle ran her wheelchair into the curb. She was in the ER for about 7 hours and was never once asked if she wanted something to eat or drink. After they have finally determined what her injury was. They then couldn't figure out if she needed to be admitted. WHY????? So after determining to admit her she was treated RUDELY and they made her CRY. Aslo treated her like she was a nobody who didn't know anything. We are not all Doctors and when you go into an ER or anywhere you should be given Courtesy, respect and Dignity. And when asked questions you should be given answers that we as Individuals who again Didn't go to Medical School can understand. During her stay in her Room Upstairs Dr. Lee was VERY VERY Rude to her. Talking down to her. We have several nurses her heard all of this. There should never be a Doctor who treats anyone as Badly as he did my Aunt. If you can't have a good bedside manner than there is no reason for you to be a Doctor. I would not recommend him to anyone.

Gave contradictory causes for condition

Our son has a deformed foot (Tarsal Coalition). We were told that he was born with this - which explains a lot about his troubles running, his flat feet, etc. He is now 13, and has been active in many athletics since he was 5 years old. Dr. Lee told us that pain from this foot abnormality commonly occurs around this age/stage of life. He prescribed orthodics for my son's shoes. They take 3+ weeks to be custom made, so meanwhile my son was wearing a boot to give him relief. He is still experiencing pain with the boot and severely without the boot. It's not practical to think he is going to wear the boot or shoes (orthodics) during all waking hours. This treatment has been dragging out for over 6 weeks since diagnoses. Which has been tough on my son since he cannot play football. Dr. Lee now changes his explanation to- there was an incident that triggered this pain and if he puts a cast on the inflammation will go down and he could be pain free in 6 months - there goes basketball. Which is fine if we are ultimately fixing the situation, but if we are just putting a band-aid on it - then not fine. Dr. Lee is not a specific foot specialist, he was adamant about us getting a 2nd opinion; which is code for - I don't feel confident in doing this surgery that probably would fix your son's feet. Initially, he wanted to try orthodics first then consider surgery. Now, when I ask specific surgery questions -he refuses to give me the success rate of the surgery, or the possible repercussions of an unsuccessful surgery. He doesn't want to do the surgery and avoids discussing it now. From what I've learned it appears to NOT be a rare condition or rare surgery done on athletic, active, young people.
