I was Dr. Cordes patient from 1992 to 2005. First I had trouble when his nurse did not admit me immediately to get antibiotic treatment for urinary tract infection, and I had to take antibiotics for a month because resistance developed. Then doc misdiagnosed my shingles as allergic reaction and erroneously prescribed immune suppressor instead of antiviral medication. Two friends whom I described the symptoms on the phone told me that this must be shingles. The medication was changed, but I still have some residual nerve damage. After I stopped seeing Dr. Cordes and went to another doc recommended by friends and told him the story of erroneous diagnosis, he told me that his nurse would diagnose shingles. This makes me believe that this was an intentional malpractice.
