Patient Comments (2)
in Wells, Maine |
This was one of the worst doctor appointments I've ever experienced. She refused to read the medical history I brought with me, claimed my medical records were not on file after I was told by Mass General that they had indeed been received. She snapped at me because I having a hearing problem and misunderstood her question. She snapped, "I don't speak loudly." Well, when you have a patient with a hearing deficiency, isn't she obligated to accommodate the patient? It was awful.
in Boston, MA |
Profound experience (more than 15-20 years), impressive intelligence and curiosity, heightened observation skills [she detected a problem which 4 other physicians overlooked].
