Never even made it through the rude office staff. I was called by them during the work week asking if I knew that my doctor had sent in a referral for me. I said yes but I hadn't had a chance to call... more to schedule an appointment. They asked if I'd like to schedule one now. Yes, I did. I was very busy as they had called me during my work day. I wrote down 8:15 on my work calendar. Then a few days before my appointment I was sent a reminder that my appointment was at 9:00. I thought I must have gotten the appointment time wrong. I went to my appointment at the scheduled time and found out I was supposed to be there 45 minutes early. I was extremely apologetic and explained that I had actually been sitting out in the parking lot waiting for my appointment time (I pride myself on being punctual). She snottily told me that I had confirmed this time with her (I guess this was when the appointment was initially made). No mention on the message left for me. She leaves and goes to speak to the doctor. Never comes back. Other front office comes back and says the doctor has no appointments available for the next two months!!!! There was not a soul in this office!!!!! I am a working professional who deals with pain daily and deals with it because I will not take narcotics. I will drive to Phoenix or Tucson to seek help. Will tell all of my professional friends to go elsewhere!!!!!!!
Can't even call this guy a Dr...He's more of a "Narcotic Dispensary"!!! For those of us who are seeking to actually "fix" the problem, I suggest you find a real Doctor. He was so concerned about whether... more or not I had an active Workmans Comp Claim, or why I questioned him on his "Case Notes", that he completely MISSED the fact that I was in need of immediate surgery, and was being poisoned every day! He THEN went on to write in my Case Notes, that I was refusing to take meds that he prescribed (narcotics-that WERENT helping the problem), because I dared "Question him"...This kid's great, so long as you pump his little ego problem, or only want him to just give you meds! Thank GOD for actual Doctors, (after firing this kid as my Pain Mgmt Specialist), the NEW Dr. figured out the pain was NOT from my back, it was from a severely blocked gallbladder, and I was rushed into Emergency Surgery (after several YEARS of POISONING. I would otherwise be dead right now. Take a stand on your health care, ASK questions, you have that right!!! He actually wrote in my Case notes "after an EXTENSIVE 18 minute conversation" (normally, I would go in, he would fill out prescriptions for more pain meds (2-4 mins), and he was DONE! When I questioned him, he became furious and defensive. Still not sure why lol. After the 3rd month of this, I began looking for another Dr. This kid is SO VINDICTIVE, he even wanted to know WHICH doctor I was going to, (so he could contact them) as part of that "18 minute Conversation". It's amazing what tape recording conversations can later help you recall!! I wish you well if you continue going to this kid, I wouldn't send an ill dog to him!
