Patient Comments (4)
in Winterport, ME |
She is not a good listener and presents as someone who believes she is always right. Dr. Bush is not an empathetic person. She may be a fine diagnostician, but her conclusions are not easy to trust.

Wonderful and thorough exam. Excellent communication of process and what she was looking for and found in exam. Scribe allowed her to focus on me instead of loading information into computer. Very good experience and I would recommend her highly.

I like Dr. Bush. However, getting an appt. with her is next to impossible. I am a patient of hers - have been seeing her for several years after finding some skin cancer. I had a different skin condition come up which I saw her for. After spending over $1,000 in prescriptions and 8 months later, my condition has worsened. I have called and begged to be seen, only to be told that she has no availability, and more prescriptions prescribed. I am now making an appt. with a naturopath.

My family has gone to her for years and I never had a bad experience until she didn't believe me when I told her I reapply sunscreen because I had a tan...in summer. Because that's IMPOSSIBLE if you reapply sunscreen, in her opinion. She made me feel incompetent and told me I was too tan for my family history. My mom (also a patient) has had skin cancer twice. I take it seriously --I just have darker pigmentation than her and always am tan in summer when I see her. Will not be returning.
