Marginalized
As a 50+ women, I felt marginalized, and my health concerns discounted. His demeanor was cocky and condescending. He spent 10 minutes, and let me leave with a BP of 138/100 with no intervention. Didn’t ask for other history of elevated BPs (it’s been as high as 190’s/130’s); he cut me off frequently dismissing my responses. I have CYP450 polymorphisms and do not respond to many medications as expected and the dr told me I had too many allergies for him to prescribe something for my blood pressure, and referred me back to my PCP - who had told me to see a specialist. Without even taking a health history, the office staff performed an EKG which showed sinus tachycardia @ 104. I was told that at my age is when high blood pressure shows up. I feel like there was no interest in treating me because he wouldn’t be ordering expensive procedures so he refused to treat me. As a nurse, I had respected him. As a patient seeking answers, I was marginalized as a woman. #Hippocraticoath

Dr. Schlaifer has always been honest & up-front with me. He doesn't try to gloss over things. I don't want a fairy tale, I want the truth, good or bad. He's always taken his time, answered questions I've had & explained test results. I hope I never have to change cardiologists.

Dr. Schlaifer is very detail oriented, he wants to know what is going on in a concise way, no rambling around. When you're ill, you appreciate that he, like Joe Friday, wants just the facts, ma'am. He's been a blessing and a curse to me, but glad that he does his job very well. Saved my life!
