Came in with a fractured hip and was prescribed medication that causes me harm. Refused to prescribe Vicodin. Told me that "if I had come in the day the fracture happened" he would have. Went on to describe a seminar he attended on narcotics, completely disregarding my medical history. I tolerate Vicodin very well and do not have a history of addiction. I am a very responsible adult. However, I have had issues with SSRIs which he gave me, boasting Notriptyline it as a muscle relaxer.

Couldn't get in to see my Dr., he was available - something tells me he's always available! HE IS THE WORST! No manners, doesn't listens, asks inappropriate questions unrelated to visit, didn't seem to care why I was in at all. I will not go back to him again! The very worst!

Since my regular doctor was unavailable for routine medication check I instead went to see Dr Carey. I've been taking the same medication for 5 years, and come in every other year to discuss. Dr Carey did not listen, prescribed 2 additional medications that my normal doctor had already discussed with me and decided not to prescribe. In addition he only extended my usual medication for 2 months. Dr Carey didn't seem open to discussion about treatment. Definitley not going back to him again.

Since my doctor for 25 years had retired, I had to select a new doctor. I stuck with Edmonds Family Medicine in Edmonds, WA and choose a doctor form their raster. First impression was to see a man who seemed to be burned out, indifferent, not listening, similar to a clerk at the post office. I visited him four times, hoping that he may had some bad days, but in the end he was the same. Since he just continued prescribing the same medication I cannot attest to his medical knowledge or abilities.
