Dr. Fitzgerald doesn't listen to me. She told me perhaps I ought to drop out of college for a couple of terms. She tells me how to handle my finances because she sees that it is my main stress and cause of my migraines, but she has no right to meddle in my affairs. I come to her for a remedy, not to be reprimanded about my fiscal or academic responsibilities. She is not professional.

I was recently diagnosed with Epilepsy and live alone. I am terrified of having a seizure and doing serious harm to myself. I always stay unconscious after, and need to be roused awake. There are service dogs for epilepsy. I asked her about it, and she became defensive. She said I wasn't a very realistic person. Word for word, the rudest thing a doctor has ever said to me. She named off the reasons why I wasn't prepared for a dog. I am not a child, and I did not deserve to be reprimanded.

I can't believe I wasted so much time with this woman. Some doctors don't spend enough time with patients, but I couldn't get a word into the conversation at all. She talked about so many things that didn't have anything to do with my headaches. Her dog, going on hikes, the dangers of swimming in the Willamette River alone. She was with me for an hour, and I couldn't wait to leave. Her demeanor is off putting. Too much eye contact and no sense of humor. I love to make people laugh, she is cold.

This woman is crazy. I met her after my first grand mal seizure. She diagnosed me with epilepsy, and told me that I would never be able to drive again. I took a break from schooland was having 5 seizures a day, almost every week. I applied for social security disability. My claim adviser called to ask why I reported that I could not drive, because my doctor told them it wasn't true. My claim was denied on that basis and she made a liar out me. I called to ask why, Yvonne her nurse said OOPS
