Pagosa springs, co |
The most horrible experience at a doctor's office I've ever had. I had a 15 minute argument w the person at the front desk, to explain a Medicare set aside account. Another 15 while she talked to someone in the back. Then she wanted me to sign a form allowing thier collection agency access to my credit scores. I hadn't even seen the doctor yet! I was now an hour past my appt and was told " because of all this trouble, u have to wait till these other patients go ahead of u". I walked out.

I have nothing but praise for Dr. Wilner herself, though her office was not well run when we saw her. My husband went to Dr. Willner because in a matter of a few months he went from walking normally to needing a wheelchair. She diagnosed him with CIDP, which is very rare and difficult to diagnose. She fought hard for him to receive the very expensive infusion treatments he needed, which resulted in him being able to walk again. She advocated with SSI so he could receive medical disability.

Dr. Willnar seems competent but not her staff, very bad. May 2016 After I was diagnosed by Dr. Willnar, that that I had normal aging memory issue and nothing to be alarmed but she would provide a list of supplements to take. With four follow-up phone calls, one personal stop-by at the office, the office never produced/mailed me anything in 2016. Recently I asked them to transfer my records and the same list of supplements, three weeks after the request, they finally told me they couldn't.

They have the absolute rudest voice mail message I have ever heard!!! I have absolutely no confidence that my husband would get decent care from this doctor! Absolutely incredibly rude and obnoxious!! Here we are in severe trauma and this is how she talks to her potential patients -- with a rude, almost mean sounding voice mail message!!! AGGGGHHH!!!!
