.

I scheduled an appointment with Dr Alderman based on a recommendation from my sister, who had seen her. Though I had to wait a month after making the appointment (and had to call twice to get the new patient info to fill out, after being told it would be sent to me), I got in quickly once there (and was pleased that I didn??t have to wait behind any pregnant women, like I did at my previous gynecologist??they were always seen first, no matter what).
My well woman exam got under way, and I spoke to her about some concerns, and while she listened, she did not ask many questions, or say much about my remarks, in general.
I ended up being sent for a test, and, she later called me with the results. She gave me the diagnosis, and told me she was referring me to a surgeon (conveniently located in her building) for a consult about a laparoscopy.
I, having no idea what that was??and, feeling a bit rushed by her, on the phone??only asked, ??Is it invasive?? She answered no, without bothering to further explain the procedure. I??in a bit of panic??didn??t press her for details.
When I got to the consult, I was told there would be a pelvic exam. I refused (there is no way I??ll ever be comfortable with a strange man sticking his hand inside me), and the nurse brought in Dr Alderman.
I discussed with her things that I guess I should have made more clear the first or second time I spoke to her??that my symptoms were in no way troublesome to me, and since the condition is not life-threatening, I would rather take a ??wait and see? approach, rather than jump right into a surgery.
I will not go back to her, even for a simple well-woman exam. I don??t feel that she really takes time to explain things to or ask questions of patients. I plan to seek treatment elsewhere??even if I have to go back to my old OB-GYN, which is a nightmare of scheduling and waiting-room limbo.
I would advise anyone who does go to her to be EXTREMELY specific when discussing your symptoms and what you expect from her, as your caregiver??especially what you are and are NOT comfortable with. She doesn??t ask many questions about your symptoms, nor will she give much explanation--during my initial visit, I had to ask her many times, in different ways, about what she expected to find in sending me for a test , before she would give me any kind of answer.
I realize that a doctor/patient relationship should be about equal give and take on both sides??but, I just didn??t feel that there was much of either, on her part.
