Patient Comments (5)
Southfield, MI |
Suggested I get "obesity surgery" as an alternative to CPAP, though I do not meet the BMI or other health requirements of weight loss surgery. Suggested I "just lose weight" rather than try to resolve the cpap issue I had. I aspirate in my sleep. I guess I should hope I don't die while trying to lose enough weight though? When in tears due to frustration with my fatigue and lack of solution, he offered stimulants to help make me less tired. He also asked if I "cry like that often"
Bloomfield Hills, Michigan |
He was extremely unfriendly and seemed in a complete rush. All of his questions were asked as if he was angry or annoyed at every response you gave. I brought someone with me to my appointment to calm my nerves, when this person tried to talk he put his hand up and told them to stop talking- completely disrespectful. Also repeatedly asked me "why are you so anxious?"... as if that has a simple answer. I would not recommend this doctor especially if you are nervous about your sleep study.
Has a cold monotone demeanor and if your problem isn't a sleep disorder he orders the basic tests and when they came back negative gave no more solutions and didn't want to explore anything further. He's rushed and doesn't explain things. He made me feel like he thought I was making my symptoms up and I always left his office in tears. Thank God I got a new Pulmonologist and have been properly diagnosed and am continuing treatment. Would never recommend him.
Farmington, MI |
Horrible experience with this doctor. He was disrespectfully leaning back on two legs of his chair, against the wall, while swinging his legs back and forth like a child. His bedside manner was cold. I was crying while he acted like this. He interrupted numerous times. He talked down to me. It was humiliating. The nurse/technician was awesome. Staff friendly. But I will never return to that doctor, nor recommend him.
