Patient Comments (4)
Laporte,IN |
Dr.best is a phenomenal doctor, but his staff is absolutely terrible. They are the RUDEST people I have ever met! They make mistakes and then try to blame it on the patient. They NEVER send what needs to be sent to the insurance and they are just plain unpleasant. Absolute WORST part about going to the doctor is having to deal with them. It's sad.
La Porte, IN |
Dr Best has been my GP for many years. No nonsense, not test crazy, more common sense.
in Michigan City, IN |
I have been with Dr Best since 2003 when he was in LaPorte. I was so glad to hear that he was coming to practice in Michigan City. He is the only doctor that I know who sits and listens to you really listens. He doesn't rush in and out he doesn't make you feel like your just a number. He is not afraid to bring in another doctor to brainstorm if he is stumped witch almost never happens. If you need to speak to him he there. He is truly a wonderful doctor ! My family loves him.
Terre Haute, IN |
He doesn't listen to me. I have told him many times about symptoms and he doesn't even look at me. or examine me.
