Hartford, CT |
He doesn't care. He gives you 30 seconds to talk and then brushes you off to go to the next patient. I saw him due to years of joint pain. Again and again I told him I didn't want to take meds, I wanted to know what was causing it so it could be stopped. He treated me (AND accused me) like a drug addict trying to get pain pills. Going elsewhere I found it was actually a food allergy. I spent 10 years in pain for no reason.

I am devastated that Dr. Stocker is retiring. I have been seeing him for a decade since I was diagnosed with Lupus in my 30s. Initially, Dr. Stocker was stern w/ me b/c I was not great about keeping my appointments and taking my health seriously. Dr. Stocker has shown me tremendous care and demonstrates strong knowledge of medicine, experience & empathy. He has literally saved my life. His retirement is well-deserved but bittersweet. I highly recommend a practitioner just like Ralph Stocker

He was one of the rudest doctors I've ever met. I had my two young children with me because I am new to the area and do not have babysitting . He was very upset and saying this isn't appropriate to bring children and he said he usually sends people away with kids to return at a later date. I understood however his bedside manner has much to be desired . I will not be returning ! Could not recommend him do to his attitude .
