Patient Comments (4)
West Haven, CT |
I cannot tell you how uncomfortable this supposed "professional" made me feel. This was the first time that I saw her, and she entered the room after reviewing my chart extremely confrontationally. She asked me if I cared about myself and I replied that I did. She then asked me if I drive with my seatbelt on. I explained that I do. She then asked if I drive with my eyes closed. Her demeanor was horrible! She told me that I was an obese smoker and needed to do something about it.

She just didn't listen. Felt like the only thing anybody in the office cared about was my insurance and generated more business for Yale ancilliaries.

DON'T GO there!DON'T P. Briens-she don't deserve to be a doc. she don't have a clue, sends me twice for the same test, didn't pay any attention to my pregnancy, it's my 1st I'm 37 and IUI patient, I was lucky if the app. was longer than 5 min. She always rushed me without answering to my questions, I'm totally 100% unsatisfied. Practice the same, to transfer my file to my new doc. office I was told I should wait 30 days that's lot when pregnant so because of them i missed my 3rd month screening.
Received misdiagnosis of uterine complication during pregnancy. MFM staff confirmed that the way the diagnosis was made was not a suitable method of diagnosing. Does not see you consistently during pregnancy, and the opinions and beliefs of midwives are not consistent leading to continuously different treatment plans. Wrong bloodwork was ordered on several occasions. Brines called to tell me I was pregnant based on someone else's lab results a few months after missed miscarriage. Could go on.
