Patient Comments (1)
Felt extremely patronized and perhaps listened to, but not heard. Immediately and repeated alluding to depression because he did not know what was causing my physical symptoms. Clearly when you are seeking a specialist, you can be upset, but he had very little patience and zero empathy. I have never written a doctor review before, but I have never had such a bad office visit. The office staff, on the other hand, was extremely professional.
I am also sorry that our visit didn't go so well. Infectious Disease consultation requires a detailed history and physical and sometimes it is stressful for some patients to discuss things that make them uncomfortable. It is also not uncommon to tell patients things they disagree with, which makes our job even more difficult to explain the reasons for those opinions. Issues that surround "chronic Lyme" diagnoses are even more challenging as we need to consider many other possibilities. Good luck
