Patient Comments (1)
in Paxico, KS |
I took my mother who has progressive dementia to Dr. Sheafor. He did not attempt to break down terms into words my mother could understand. Both my mother's primary care doctor and a psychologist felt my mother would benefit from an antidepressent medication. My mother did not understand his line of questioning, and Dr. Sheafor clearly does not communicate well with those with dementia and was not able to dialogue in a manner in which he would have been able to discover her mental status.
