Although I had confirmed appointments, I had to wait, wait, and wait for several hours. This happened on many occasions. When I finally got to see him, he was rushed and rude. One time we were going over something in my records and come to find out he was talking about another patient and not me. He also ordered all sorts of blood tests and other testing for which I think were not even needed. It has been 6 years since I last saw him. My new endro is great and much better than Trippe.
in Birmingham, AL |
This doctor does not prescribe generic medications, as he is firm in his belief that they are inferior to name brands. He shows no regard for for families he wants to pay in medication costs what they would pay for rent and utilities every month. He also showed blatant disregard for my other medical issues during our visits, and was uncomfortably obsessed with my having children, which he expressed in the creepiest of baby voices.
