Myrtle Beach, SC |
A family doctor that doesn't feel the need to touch you. Everything is here is an antibiotic and a steroid shot. Sad part is the antibiotic she put me on is not a first line one but one when all else fails. She strongly suggested a steroid shot. Within 24 hours loss use of one arm. Find out that there is a red box warning not to mix the two drugs she gave me. After months of pt have use back but muscles still spasm.

Went to Dr Mahood because I was having severe abdominal pain. She ordered some diagnostic studies... wouldn't give me the results over the phone, (which really worried me) So when I went back for a follow up appointment, she wasn't sure why I was there. Figured out it was to discuss results, which I discovered were abnormal, but when I asked what I should do to be proactive she bluntly stated "I take it you need pain medicine." I had never been so insulted or belittled. Still have no answers!

I've been cared for by Dr. Mahood for some years now and am very pleased. She is thorough, always responsive to questions and I feel comfortable with her. I recommend her highly.

Dr. Mahood has saved my life a couple of times. She takes the time to explain things to me and share treatment options. I appreciate her thoroughness. She takes the time to pay attention to the details.

Needs to find another line of work. Realize not all Dr have the best bedside manner but this one needs help. Seems stressed out which makes me stressed. Never smiles, seems like she disliked dealing with me.
