Goose Creek |
First good visit when referred bt my Dr., but at 22nd appt,, when I brought my husband, he was rude, insulting and complacent. I was trying not to cry. My husband wanted to tell him off. We just left.

A DR with no plan on my diagnosis of vasculitis.had no problem treating me with 40 mg of prednisone for 3 weeks , I stopped taking them on my own due to too many side effects.(2 weeks) Made an appt to see him..He wanted me to continue taking them and come back in a month. He didn't want to do blood work on this appointment either. I asked for it because I wasn't feeling right. Next day I received a call that my Liver levels were highly elevated. I'm very upset that he pushed prednisone on me!

Its been 3 years now and the ONLY time I ever have felt like he actually cared what was happening with me was when I was on a drug study he was heading. All other visits have made me leave feeling fair worse, emotionally! I feel like none of my concerns are taken into consideration. Dr. Brown recently took me off a drug in 3 days and sent me into severe panack attacks and deep depression. I then went to another doctor that said I should have, at least, 4 weeks of slowly reduced amounts to go off
