Patient Comments (4)
Gainesville, VA |
Scheduled an appointment for my son after he had been experiencing serious issues for years. He had never seen him before, yet it took us more time to fill out the paperwork than the time this doctor spent diagnosing him. After waiting 3 weeks to see this doctor and 20 minutes in the waiting room, he spent a whopping 7 minutes with my son. clearly not even enough time to peruse his medical history. Will not return and feel like filing a formal complaint!
Aldie, VA |
Just like the previous review no hands-on exam or discussion. I showed him where my pain was and he told me that it was my rib cage and I should go to my physician for a cortisone shot. He was extremely rude and acted as though I had no right to be in his office. I'm glad I didn't take his advice. I went to Patient First, they took an x-ray of my intestines and found a blockage which was causing my stomach pain - not my rib cage as Dr. Mirkin so dismissively suggested. Terrible experience!
Washington, DC |
Saw Dr. Mirkin since my other physician in the same practice didn't have an opening. After listening to me he said that since he hadn't seen me before, and I was scheduled for a "follow-up" slot, that he didn't have time to learn my history. No hands-on exam or other discussions. I said I was just in the ER for a partial bowel obstruction; he said I should take laxatives and get an appointment with my main GI doctor. He wasn't rude, but he wasn't empathetic or remotely helpful either.
Fairfax, VA |
Went to see Dr. Mirkin twice, with problems that could be related to reflux. Never did a physical exam. Gave me a prescription to take for 6 weeks and come back. I did it, he was impatient and told me to go to an ENT. Again, no physical exam, my symptoms were almost the same. I requested to try a diet. He dismissed it. I DO NOT RECOMMEND SEE DOCTOR MIRKIN.
