I love doctor Stokol, because he is a very thoughtful, genuinely caring Physian with great listening skills. However, despite seeing him for over a decade, his front staff are not that nice. They tend to respond with impatience and at times pure rudeness with an eagerness to slam the call off before one is finished talking. The front reception also has a communication disconnect between each other, because each time I ran a question by a different person, they each gave me a different answer.

Never got back his secretary. Sheryl (sp?) was nasty and unhelpful. I needed an emergency consult and she couldn't have been more unhelpful. Although I never saw the doctor, something is really wrong if the front office staff is so bad.

Although we haven't yet found a diagnosis for my condition, Dr. Stokol's attentiveness and sense of urgency put me at ease. After seeing five doctors for my condition, Dr. Stokol seemed to actually listen to my symptoms. Instead of ruling anything out, he suggested I get a blood test and MRIs, brought up things I hadn't even thought of, and even asked my friend if I had missed anything. He assured me we would figure this out and I trusted him because he seemed so thorough.
