This doctor does spend time with you and has a good bedside manner which apparently fools a lot of people, but I don't think that he really cares about his patients. During my second visit with him, he told me that in order to lose weight I should stop eating cereal for breakfast and eat a lot of eggs and sausage instead. Then he told me that I needed to lower my cholesterol level too. I'm not sure how both were going to happen with that approach. He also prescribed an appetite suppressant for me even after I told him that I had very little appetite and that might be part of the problem. He said people say it is addictive, but it's just those "anorexic girls who abuse it." I asked the pharmacy about it, and they said that they no longer fill prescriptions for it because it is highly addictive. So, now I check my prescriptions with the pharmacist first.

More recently, I have been to his office about 6 times in the last 3 weeks. Some of those visits may have been unnecessary if the nurse would have called me back as she promised. Her standard answer is "I'll ask the doctor and call you back," but she never calls back. If you can even get through on the phone, it's a miracle. Normally, the answering machine picks up and then hangs up on you. They lost test results (blood work and an x-ray) before I knew the results and the doctor shrugged it off--- could not remember the results and did not reorder them. That was about $250 wasted. I waited 2 weeks for their office to provide diagnosis codes to the hospital for a test that the doctor wanted right away-- to check for a pending stroke. The only reason it finally got sent in was because the internist did it. She and one recently hired administrative assistant are the only two bright spots to this office. Probably neither one of them will stay very long. My average wait is about an hour just to see the doctor. My last visit was a total of 2 1/2 hours. He's a nice guy, and maybe more knowledgeable than 6 years ago, but he is understaffed and that minimal staff is lead by one horrible nurse. I have a new doctor now who is very thorough and organized.
