What People Say About Dr. Erin Drenkhahn Stephens, MD

I wasted 2 days this week seeing Dr. Drenkhahn-Stephens as a new patient. I was organized in things I felt I needed to ask her and had medical and life issues I thought she needed to know. She showed no interest, just looked at me with a blank face, showed no empathy, wouldn't listen to me or explain to me concerns I had. I finally said I thought this was not going to work out. I told her I didn't think she cared and seemed to be in a hurry. She said she was "treatment focused". She agreed that we were not a good fit and said she didn't take offense as it happens all the time. I could go on and on, but will leave the personal details off of here. I won't be going back to her and would never reccomend her.

Zips in, zips out. If u have no real health issues & rarely need to see a Dr., she may be fine. Yet if u have multiple health issues, take many Rxs & need a good listener....Dr. Erin D. Stephens is definitely NOT for you.

Dr. Stephens seems very dismissive. Does not try to alleviate fears of patient. Just adds to anxiety of situation. In my situation I told her I googled everything and always imagined the worse. I was seeing her for something not at all life threatening but she made the comment “well you could have cancer” after I told her jokingly that I always imagine the worse even over the most minor illness. I will now look for an older more experienced more empathetic doctor. Will not see her again.

Suppossed to be a new pt visit. Prior to visit the appt needed to be changed. The office mgr was lovely& said to call her directly w/ problems. I was called back to exam rm quickly. Dr DrenkhahnStephens spent time reviewing my history, medications & concerns I had, asked appropriate questions & obviously listened well. Though Dr DS introduced herself & cleaned her hands, the asst't (?) never offered her name or title. I felt very comfortable at the visit. I have already recommended her.

Dr. Drenkhahn seems to have limited knowledge in her field, yet disregards patients knowledge of their own bodies and knowledge of treatments that have worked for them in the past. I visited her several times for tiredness. She said I was ok. After several visits, I asked to see someone else. Turns out I have a Vitamin B deficiency - she never even tested me for it.

Drenkhahn seems to have limited knowledge. Appears disrespectful. Shows no empathy. Makes assumptions without taking time to read patient history (I have been a patient for 10 years) Extremely rude - her lack of knowledge & lack of professional judgement has caused me 10 weeks of excruciating pain every single day. I never use pain meds - It took 6 calls in 3 weeks to her to get a referral to see a QUALIFIED physician. I have spinal surgery in three weeks. I wish her the pain I suffered.
