Bakersfield, CA |
I have been suffering for 3 months; I was referred to this witch doctor. He ordered a bunch of test and finally my Primary Care ask why I have been doing all this test due to the fact it has nothing to do with my illness. I returned for a follow up visit; and the PA was the one I saw and said everything came up normal for your nerve damage!???? I was so shocked I went there due to right side weakness after a stroke not leg pain at all. My husband got so upset the doctor then came in and apologiz

Prompt to get in exam room, followed by 45-60 minutes in room waiting. Forget seeing the doctor after your first visit, only the PA is available. Staff is very slow in sending in prescriptions and horrible at returning phone messages. FORGET about reaching a live person on the phone during " Office hours". The phone message will say they are open, however, they are never available by phone on the stated hours and it rings to voicemail or the answering service. Would not recommend.

Until yesterday I found this doctors service to be one I would recommend and have. But when I requested a form to be filled out to ensure I get needed utility discounts, I was denied this because I missed my last appointment. I have Multiple Sclerosis which has no cure so will not go away, so requesting he sign a form, which says that and allows me to stay healthy shocked and saddens me. I would say today, he lacks compassion, for a Dr. that is a thumbs down for me.
