Dr. Bernstein has been "treating me" for 5 months. With very little help. This week, out of the blue, she insinuated I have thyroid cancer and advised me to "not have a scan done". "I wouldn't want to know if I had cancer" is what she said to me. I found my own diagnosis online and she told me this week, after 5 months, that I was correct. This woman is a terrible dr. I am finding a new one after finding out I DON'T have a nodule even.

This woman is one of the most ARROGANT dr's I have ever met. BTW, the 5 stars given by the above review was NOT for her, it was for a different dr. in her practice. AND I have never waited less than 1 1/2 hours for an appt. The waiting room always has more than 70 people in it waiting to see dr.s. It's a Dr. factory over there. Very very disappointed with this dr's "care". I had to get angry and refuse to pay before she finally took me serious enough to actually ADMIT there was a problem. I kept getting told to decrease my meds and come back in 2 months. This was totally unacceptable care and glad I have found a new dr. NOT speaking for the rest of the dr's in this practice, except when I complained about her and wanted a new dr, I was told I would have to go back on the new patients waiting list and it would 3 months before I could see a new dr. in this same practice - even for a second opinion. They hold their patients hostage. I hate this place. HATE IT.

what dr. would tell her patient to NOT find out if she has cancer? I have the conversation recorded! Things got so bad I decided I needed to record the last visit on my droid. I needed proof of how badly I have been treated, I thought.

Both my husband and I are diabetics. We've had the pleasure of enjoying the services of Dr. James Speed and the staff of Asheville Endocrinology Associates for the past 4 years.
The staff there is always pleasant, easy to work with, knowledgeable, and helpful. They respond to your inquiries quickly and efficiently. Dr. Speed is ACES in his demeanor and "bedside manner" - always listening to what we have to say and encouraging in our efforts to control our diabetes. His suggestions make it easier for us to manage this disease. We highly recommend them for all your endocrinological needs!
