.

He was recommended to me by a friend of the family and I was in need of a well-trained, good doctor. I gave him a shot. He is intelligent, he sounds like he knows his field very well. But he has zero people skills, horrible bedside manner, not very caring and does not listen well... Here is my story.

I had the D&C with him - horrible choice of doctors... Left the surgery center in a lot of pain that led me to the ER shortly thereafter. The ultrasound technician said that "it didn't look good" and that it appears that there was tissue or blood left in the uterus. Dr. Augustino was called at 5:10pm but he directed the tech to call the on-call doctor because the office was closed. The on-call doctor (from another medical practice) immediately got on the phone with me and said I needed to admit myself into the E.R. for an emergency repeat D&C because it appears that material was left in the uterus that would be what was causing my pain, and if left could cause an infection.

I opted to wait for Dr. Augustino on Monday as I was unsure about the emergency procedure. The doctor on call told me to prepare for surgery Monday morning just in case, because it is inevitable, and to not eat or drink anything after midnight. I did as directed. Meanwhile, the pain and bleeding intensified, cramping prevented me from sleeping a solid night, sleeping with a heating pad every night and taking tons of pain killers to help dull the pain unsuccessfully.

Monday comes around and no phone call from the doctor. I called the office and was told that the doctor wanted me to come in. I was upset that he knew I was preparing for surgery but did not have anyone call me to have me come in. I went to his office, and with no explanation he ordered another bloodtest and examination. I immediately wanted some answers.

Dr. Augustino proceeded to say that he is very experienced and knows he did the procedure well and did not leave anything in my uterus, said that he does not know why the doctor and radiologist said what they said, and that he doesn't believe I am in serious pain, and that the pain was in my head. He said he doesn't agree that I was in that serious of pain, and brushed me off. He said he would not do another D&C on me no matter what.

At this point, my pride was bruised. I am very upset that my own doctor would brush me off and discredit my opinion on how I MYSELF feel. He was very uncaring, unkind, cold, and arrogant. He acted like he did not need me as a patient, and I was just a # in his very busy practice. He said if I had a problem with that I could go to another doctor (which I immediately did).

I further tried seeing the on-call doctor that had originally wanted to do my repeat surgery Friday, but according to her secretary, Dr. Augustino had called her and informed her of the situation and she refused to see me because it was a "conflict of interest".

I was left with no doctor, horrible pain and cramping, intense bleeding, after just a week after the D&C he did. I had to scramble to find another doctor, and have obviously not gotten a follow up call from his office to see how I am.

I will give credit when credit is due, and say that Dr. Augustino is a smart doctor.. But I had too much faith in him and was left with what I believe (along with an ultrasound technician, a radiologist and an on-call doctor MD) to be a bad D&C procedure, horrific pains and cramping, and a lot of bleeding with zero concern or medical care. I honestly say that Dr. Augustino was arrogant, and extremely uncaring. He does not need your business, he has enough already, and he makes it known the second you have a problem. When you need a good, caring doctor to render an opinion, help guide you and treat you, he prides himself on his experience and that's about it.

Please make your choice to see him wisely. As a woman looking for a thorough, caring doctor to help me through my life and pregnancy, I needed someone who listened to me and my concerns, was thorough in treating me and who had good bedside manners. He did none of the above and I would not recommend him to any of my loved ones.
