This doctor couldnt possibly be worse. RUN. After being diagnosed with RA, I had a million questions for him about lifestyle changes and he literally told me to google it. Thanks Doc, I thought I was paying you so i didnt have to google it.

It took me 2.5 years until my insurance finally let me change rheumatologists. Dr. Head's bed-side manners are absolutely horrible. He never once looked directly at me when I talked with him. I HAD TO MAKE suggestions about treatment and now I found out that I have another autoimmune disease that he overlooked and probably will end my life sooner than if it had been diagnosed earlier. Do NOT chose this doctor if you have other choices.

I arrived for my third appt. 10 min. early. I was quickly taken back to an exam room and seen by a nurse. Then I waited for 45 min. as I listened to Dr. Head in the room next to mine. It almost sounded like a job interview. I heard him talk about the hours he would like to have and his desired rotation schedule. He talked about getting paid on salary as is done in other facilities. They complained about the Medicare system and the man gave Dr. Head his personal cell number. Highly unprofessional
