South Portland, ME |
My experience with Dr. Belden was very poor. He seemed impatient for me to leave, and when I asked him specific questions, his answers were often "I've been a doctor for thirty years, so whatever I say must be correct." I did not feel that my care was important to him and even though he gave me a possible diagnosis, he refused to order the confirmatory test because "people think they know what they want and then after wish they hadn't asked for it." I would highly recommend looking elsewhere.

Dr. Belden was dismissive, and seemed completely uninterested in the appointment, informing us that 2 episodes which were deemed TIAs were not in fact that, but caused by a tight neck muscle. So that apparently caused the slurred speech and slightly drooped face. A neck muscle. if you have seen him, GET A SECOND OPINION!!! This was one of the most terrible experiences I have ever had with a medical professional, and due to having brain surgery due to a brain tumor, I have had many.

Very helpful and professional, to the point a strait shooter.
