    DR. CHURGAY RESPONDS - (Dr. Churgay, edit your response)

    I'm sorry that some patients had such a negative experience with me and our office staff and will use this feedback to continuously improve a patient's experience in our practice.  Patients can directly call our office manager at 734 481-0111 extension 102 with any concerns or complaints so that we can immediately address them.  I am very sorry that the patients had to wait longer than they expected.  My office staff often schedules complicated patients with me because they know that I will spend whatever amount of time is needed with the patient in order to address their multiple problems and make sure that 1.  They understand what those problems are and 2. They understand how their treatment plan will try to solve those problems.  I've asked the schedulers to schedule extra time for these patients but have no influence on the schedulers because I am a volunteer.  Almost all of the people at the Hope Clinic are volunteers so that we can provide the best care possible regardless of the patient's ability to pay.  I'm grateful for the opportunity to give back to my community but admit to being frustrated by having no influence on my office staff so that I can improve patient experiences. I can only promise that I will do my best to improve whatever I can because I enjoy practicing medicine and don't want my patients to have a bad experience.  Please rest assured that I will spend whatever time with you that you need but please understand that you might have to wait at times because I've extended the same courtesy to someone else.  Unfortunately, sometimes conflict occurs between the physician and patient because of personality and other differences and while I do my best it sometimes can't be avoided.  I encourage those patients to seek care elsewhere in order to obtain a better "fit" so the patient can feel better and hopefully recover from whatever ails them.

    I had been in pain for a long time I had the T11 broken in my spine in which no one else pursued or tried to help me with the pain not. I had no job I had no resources but Dr. Catherine Churgay is the best doctor I have ever had. Now that I am back on my feet we always send money to the Hope Center knowing that there are other people out in the world that need help like we did and will find that help with the Hope Center and there doctors. Thank you so much God Bless you all Plus Dr. Churgay
