Patient Reviews (3)
Lansing, MI |
Cancelled an appt on me after months of waiting, and refused to see me 4 months later when I was 10 mins late in a snow storm, even though we still had 20 mins left. Couldn't get in with her for 6 more months. She should not be accepting new patients. In the meantime she over-prescribed a medication putting me at clinically toxic levels. DId not review prior tests. Treats patients terribly and is a terrible doctor. Avoid.

I've been going to Dr. Hoisington for several years. I'd been living with horrible thyroid problems since an RAI done by a terrible doctor years earlier. My primary care doctor wasn't any better at dealing with it but wouldn't refer me. Dr. Hoisington self-referred me when I was in the exam room with my mother (the patient). I'm finally starting to feel better. More energy, less brain fog, etc, She really listens and works on adjusting things to get best results. So glad I found her!

Dr. Hoisington conducts little discussion about your situation, and spends the bulk of her time with you sharing inane stories of other patients or things outside the office. I usually wait for about 50-60 minutes to be seen, and then have no discussion about my actual situation. Additionally, I have regularly had mistakes with my prescription dosage, and I have verified that it was not the pharmacy's fault. I thought things would get better in her new office, but they have only continued.
