      I was seen by Dr. Connell in November and asked to come back for a bladder study. I scheduled it for Jan/Feb and then the machine broke and the staff said they would call me to reschedule. Her staff actually told me not to call back, they would call me. No one ever called so I finally called in May and got an appt for June. Dr. Connell is sick today so now they are offering me July 25th. I am going to go somewhere else where they value my time and honor their word.

      Should be ashamed. I went to her for help in trying to start a family and managing my symptoms. Not only did I wait a half hour past my appt time but she didn't have any of the 60 pages of records I had faxed over and called and confirmed she got before my appt. She did a minor exam and gave me no advice or guidance. I received a $700 bill for absolutely nothing. Worthless.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
