in Wantagh, NY |
Unfortunately did not get in to see the doctor. After calling to make an appointment, reviewing insurance that he takes, went to appointment to find he "does not take that insurance". When I pulled out my paperwork and told the girl who I spoke to to make sure insurance was in order, I got ~ that was me, I called you back, no you didn't or I wouldn't have wasted my time coming. I also have caller ID & you are not on that either! Disgusted!

Dr. Etra rushed through my entire appointment - he consistently cut me off while I was talking and jumped to conclusions about a very painful condition I was seeing him for, and bounced back and forth between other patients in the middle of the appointment. I'm not convinced I actually had his attention at any point. Staff was unresponsive to my attempts to register my frustration. I wish I hadn't wasted taking a day off of work for this and had seen someone else to begin with.

Rushed; does not explain clearly; was not thorough in ordering comprehensive CT Scan;
