What People Say About Dr. Clyde Southwell, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

This Dr was assigned to me when I was admitted to the hospital. He was ready to send me home while I was still in ICU barely able to breathe with a lung bacterial infection & double pneumonia. Thank God the primary physician overseeing my care did not agree & brought in a different pulmonologist for a 2nd opinion. I stayed in ICU for 2 more days & then in a regular room for 3 after that. I was deathly ill & he only talked to me like 5 minute, seemed aloof & unconcerned. I shudder to think what would have happened if he'd have been allowed to discharge me too soon.

My only problem was with the inordinate waits on my two visits. The first time was 1 hour and 15 minutes. The second time was over 2 hours...the office was closing and they asked what I was still doing there. I told them I was waiting for my appointment over 2 hours earlier. The office appears to be poorly managed, if managed at all. I was told if I waited more than "an hour," I should say something. On the other hand, my overnight sleep study was handled flawlessly by the two ladies on staff.

Doctor was very condescending. Anything I said was wrong and I was to listen and not talk or ask questions. Will never go to this doctor again. All I got nothing from my visit except a lighter wallet.

The incompetence in this office is amazing. The staff has no clue what they're doing and the doctor isn't much better. Was under his care for 5 months and I'm no better today than i was then but he wants to keep seeing me so i can pay him. NOPE, I'm finding another doctor who wants to help me not just take my money!

Sleep study was performed, received diagnosis and prescribed CPAP machine. It has dramatically improved my life. I thought I had dementia - turns out it was poor sleep causing memory and cognitive function problems. The staff was professional and courteous. I did not have a long wait in either scheduling or when at the office.

Always have to call to get the office to remind them to get approval from the insurance for scans. (That's not my job) I have been waiting for two weeks for test results that they were suppose to call me about....I called them this morning, the staff had not even given them to the doctor, and they have had the results since Dec. 28'th 2016. I have been seeing him for over a year and it's an ordeal with his staff EVERY time. I'm going to speak with my PCP about him taking over my case.

This office clearly over books and knows it. We sat there with my adult disabled son for 1 1/2 hours. He wears diapers, had wet, and was extremely irratated as anyone would be. Now I know the red carpet doesn't need to be rolled out for him, but when places aren't equipped to take care of such things, priority should be considered.We haven't had this problem in the past, the waiting and exam rooms were full, so it appears there's a cattle rustling attitude about their patients now.Not going back

I have seen Southwell on more than one occasion and each time I am told that a prescription will be called in to a pharmacy but never is.I have followed up with Southwells office and they inform that they will see to it that a prescription will be sent in but it never is.Save yourself some time and try to find another doctor.The U.S healthcare system is in a state of shambles as are the times in which we live.
