Patient Comments (3)
His two young children were running in and out of the appointment room eating suckers and coughing while my 3 year was expected to concentrate and read images off the wall. It was insane. He was also an hour late because of car trouble.
My wife had a low tire and I tried to fix it before I left the house.She had her own doctor's appointment so I had to bring the kids; we do not have grandparents who can take care of the kids. I arrived at the office 35 minutes late. We were also having a sinkhole repaired in the parking lot so the contractor needed to talk to me intermittently. I don't expect a barely 3 year old to do a chart completely (usually due to attention span). It is usually done at 3.25 to 3.5 years.

Dr. Cockings is easily annoyed and condescending to his patients...Not a good quality for a PEDIATRIC doctor. The receptionist is rude and unfriendly. We continue to see Dr cockings because he's the only option in town, but my child and I both absolutely dread going the appointments. Go to anyone else of you can, if not, be prepared.
My receptionist is doing her job. She requires certain information from patients to do her job effectively If information has been requested and the patient arrives without it, it makes for delays, conflict at the front desk and more work This same situation can repeat multiple times with the same family. I don't feel that I get easily annoyed or condescending but we all have those days and sometimes there are personality conflicts. I would be happy to refer you somewhere else if desired.

I have not even gotten into the door. I called to check on why I hadn't gotten a call about scheduling an appointment for my daughter. I was informed by a receptionist that my daughters concers were not pressing. Who is she to tell me that? She does not have a medical degree!
We schedule most visits through the PCP. That way, we know why we are seeing the patient. The parent was informed of this and we requested her PCP to contact us. We don't take all insurances and we don't take vision plans so we want to make sure patients know if they pay out of pocket or not and we also get a better background on the history.
