Dr Valentin immediately recognized the problem when he saw my symptoms of weak muscles
in Westfield, MA |
I don't recognize the Dr. Valentin referred to in many of these reviews. My experience with Dr. V has been positive, and his knowledge and professional competence has been invaluable in easing my pain. He has shown himself to be courteous and concerned which is what any patient wants. He is an in - trovert, and for that matter so am I, and I think that many of these reviews are reflective of this in portraying him as distant and uncaring, That is certainly not the doctor I know.
Hartford, CT |
For the record, I have never felt the need to write a reviw until now. Just an aweful experience. Every review written previously nailed his lack of empathy, personality, and professionalism. I'm 43 and I've had chronic pain for years and the best he did was order bloodwork and Naproxin. After a year of this scam, I finally asked for all my medical records and am now looking for a Dr. that may actually care about me!
in Lee, MA |
The best I can say is that Dr Valentin should consider a nonclinical research position. Interview & exam were superficial. Empathy: absent. Interest in disease progression: minimal. He rudely expressed disinterest in following a rare & disabling disorder that should be within his capabilities.
Manchester, CT |
I agree with the other reviews....the whole process is a bit like cattle being herded into holding pens...and when you are seen by the doctor the exam is cursory at best, the empathy/ bedside manner is non existent, you are rushed through the consult in a manner that hardly allows for questions the diagnoses were arbitrary and asinine...he is a giant NO!!!!!
in West Springfield, MA |
I had an initial visit with Dr. Valentin, with great help, interests, many questions, concerns, great physical inspection as well as complete questions! The staff seemed professional and kept my privacy respectfully. My second visit was informative, I was invited for a re~visit should i have any other flareups, I felt he did all he could do for me.
Terrible. No bed side manner. Just His whole attitude was negative. I am in pain and he didn't seem understanding. Just business as usual.
Chicopee, MA |
He's not a warm fuzzy. Lacking empathy and any warmth to say the least. There is a NEXT! feeling like you are just a number and there is no caring about how you are at all. No caring, no hearing about what you are telling him about your symptoms and your needs. He will not return phone calls ever. He leaves this to his nurse who is not mature enough to handle this task. She does not deliver messages clearly and it's like playing the game telephone from preschool so there is a huge gap.
I waited to see Dr. Vallentin and when I finally saw him he spent 5 minutes with me. Rushed the entire appointment, gave me some naproxen, & ordered some lab work. It was the worst experience with a doctor, he didn't care to hear about my symptoms which are still there. He doesn't call you directly with results and his nurse knew little. This place is so systematic like the the registry for motte or vehicles...take a number get in and get out. Aweful!
