Patient Comments (1)
Keene, NH |
I am surprised by the other good reviews. Dr. Bettinger was shockingly dismissive of my questions about my child's fracture, saying only things like: "Trust me." He also added "I won't call the police on you. I don't do that any more," as though asking for more information meant I would deny appropriate care to my child. I have dealt with many doctors in the nearly 50 years of my life, and with my two children, and I have never felt the need to publicly declare my frustration and disappointment.
