Patient Comments (5)
in Ann Arbor, MI |
Edelmann's etiquette with patients is quite inconsiderate and unprofessional. He diagnosed my depression by saying, "Well, surprise, you have depression!" Incredibly tactless - not how one should address anyone, much less a suicidal teenager, with depression. He looks more at his tablet than the patient during examinations. Did not know what vaccinations his practice had. Also dropped my whole family from his practice for asking about very costly tests he billed us for without informing us!
He is extremely arrogant and treats patients as if their opinions are not valid. When he is challenged he gets annoyed and eventually he verbally attacked me and said to find another doctor. He was incredibly rude, unprofessional and condescending. i have never been treated that badly.

Dr.. Edelmann is very knowledgable and can refer you to his connections to excellent specialists. Will refer out if condition suggests a specialist is called for. Does not always try to treat you by prescribing antibiotics , but only uses them on conditions where an antibiotic can be helpful. He is direct and honest and spends sufficient time with you during the office call. He looks at whole life issues to best serve the patients' needs. I have recommended him to numerous family and friends.

I found Dr. Karl Edelmann to be arrogant and condescending in manner. He proudly stated that he forced his patients to come into his office for blood tests and checkups 34% more often than the most stringent medical recommendations. His rude and unprofessional behavior and pompous attitude contributed to his deportment as the worst medical professional with which I have had the misfortune to interact.

I have been going to Dr. Edelmann since 1996. His entire staff is nothing but outstanding.
