What People Say About Dr. John Given, MD

When Affinity closed, Dr. Blumer highly recommended Dr. Given to me, and my son and I made arrangements to join his practice. The building is huge compared to what I am used to, and a bit of a maze, but the staff is so outgoing and friendly, you don't mind getting lost on the way to an exam room! Jolene in particular--the lovely lady that gives you your allergy shots--is one of the best that I've ever worked with in my medical history. Dr. Given has a very nice bedside manner, is very thorough and will work with other doctors to give a patient the best care. I'm glad to be a patient of his and have my family there with him. He even has a bathroom in the waiting area for patients' convenience! They accept allergy shot patients typically until 5. You MUST remain in the waiting room for 20 minutes before they will let you leave; Jolene checks for allergic reactions from the shots before she lets you leave to make sure all is well when you do leave.

In the last 8 years I have developed hives as part of seasonal allergies. I went to Dr. Given with a breakout on my hand and in between my figures. He said problems on the hands come from chronic hand washing, a compulsive behavior. He lectured me on hand washing. Insisted I watch him wash his hands at the sink in the room. He was closed minded & condescending. The appointment was useless & cost about $250. I never went back. His behavior was inappropriate. Can not recommend. Total thumbs down!!

I went to Dr. Givens last year for dizziness due to allergies affecting my inner ear. His only solution was a prescription for Omeprazole for GERD. He repeatedly said that he had dizziness one time and found that he had been affected by GERD that inflammed his eustachian tube. The Omeprazole did not help me at all after a thirty day trial. He actually had no other suggestions. He appears too old to be practicing. He was at a loss for any other diagnosis.

Now I understand why Dr. Givens is legendary when it comes to allergies. He's personable, informative and not too proud to get a second opinion. He solicits input from his patients to help in the care. Everyone at the office is friendly, patient and prompt.

I went to Doctor Givens today and actually found out that I don't have allergies. This is good to know. I found him and his staff very caring and knowledge able. If I had allergies I know I could trust him to help me as he takes his work very seriously. We discussed different options to deal with my frequent upper respiratory infections which was very helpful.

I have been seeing Dr. Given and his associates for about 3 years now. I never feel rushed and I feel like each of the people there truly care about how I'm feeling and what we can do to make me feel better.

After just one visit with Dr. Given it is clear that he cares deeply for all of his patients. I have been seeing him and Jen For 2 1/2 years. I came to them in bad shape and they immediatley educated me, came up with a plan of action, and closely monitored me to make sure I was doing my best to follow the plan and seen improvement. They always answer my questions without ever making me feel rushed. They make sure I know I can call them day or night if I'm having trouble with my asthma.

Dr. Givens is one of the most caring doctors you will find. He listens to his patients carefully, and is extremely knowledgeable in the fields that he practices. He has helped me over the past 12 years significantly, and I was very sad when I had to move out of state.
