Cumming, GA |
This has been one of the worst experiences I have had. It clearly states that he practices psychiatry. So I went to visit his office and saw him for him only to tell me that he doesn't do that and he can't help me. Couldn't even refer me to someone either. They also make you pay your co pay before being seen. Had I known that I wouldn't have been helped I would not have even paid that co pay. When I asked for my money back they would not give me my money back. It was his "time" I paid for.

It was like I was a burden to his schedule. I timed it and from the moment he walked in the room until he left was less than 5 minutes. Offered no insights, no help, and basically just said come back for a check up. Why would I pay another co-pay when for the third time in a row I felt like I could have checked in by e-mail and gotten a better and cheaper experience.

My wife, and I were referred to Dr. Futrell by our Primary Care Provider, Morrow Family Medicine in Cumming, Ga. We are newcomers to this area and needed a neurological evaluation (age is a factor). Dr. Futrell interviewed us, making comments as we discussed various aspects of our lifestyles. He reviewed his findings with us, and scheduled both of us for follow-up scanning procedures to validate his observations. All that was accomplished with exceptional expedience. We are very pleased.

I usually do not do reviews but this office was horrible. They didn't speak when I checked in, they scheduled me with the wrong doctor, and the office manager is rude as well which is probably why the front staff act the way that they do.
