What People Say About Dr. Randy Kozel, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
I was disgusted with him. I called to get a new script for maintenance migraine medicine & was told the dr. said you need to schedule an appt. first. It may not have been so bad, but the next available appt. was in 3mths. That was enough to give me a migraine. When I called & asked for the dr. to call me, he would not. He told the secretary to have me call my primary dr. My primary, Dr. Earp, filled it immediately without any questions. I have to leave him as a dr. That's not a dr.

My recent experience with him was terrible. He said some really mean things to me and then spent the rest of the appointment going off on bizarre tangents that had absolutely nothing to do with me. I cried through the whole appointment. He came across as angry and irritated and showed absolutely no empathy. Run like hell.
