My husband and I both had Dr Livingstone as our Primary care physician for 7-8 years. He had us on the same dose of high blood pressure medicine, lisiniprol, and treated us for very little else besides sinus infections, for which he always prescribed us both Z - pak antibiotics. One year I went to Dr Livingstone for a physical, which did not include a pap smear or any type of gynecological exam. My insurance company was charged for a pap smear and contacted me as I had just went to my gynecologist for my yearly pap. I had to go in person to Dr Livingstones office to have this straightened out as it was not taken care of over the phone. The last visit I had with Dr Livingstone was in December 2009. I went in complaining of chest pain and shortness of breath. Dr Livingstone diagnosed me with indigestion and possible GERD. I was instructed to take milk of magnesia twice daily as well as zantec every morning for a couple of weeks. Before I could finish this treatment I was in the ER with the same chest pains and shortness of breath, this time I had triple bypass surgery. The surgeon told my family that I had severe heart damage and it looked as if I had a previous heart attack, which I know now was what was happening when I went to see Dr Livingstone. I was in the hospital for months, and currently I need a heart transplant that I pray about daily. I can't help but think Dr Livingstone may have spared me all of this if he had done any kind of test to detect a heart attack; an EKG, a chest x-ray, anything. I would not recommend him as a Dr to my worst enemy. He is nice and friendly as a person, in fact he has always reminded me of Mr Rogers (from Mr Rogers Neighborhood), but he is NOT a good Dr! They say hindsight is 20/20, I now see how inefficient he was. I also question his motives for prescribing me and my husband the same medications all those yrs, wondering if it was more for profit than our health. He needs to do all of his patients a favor and retire.
