What People Say About Dr. Russell Dirksen, DPM
Reply
Poor. He wouldn’t let me in because staff said I was late because I was not there at 2:40 (which they said I needed to arrive for paperwork) for a 3:00 appointment. I was caught by a traffic tie up because of a wreck and arrived at 2:55 and had my paperwork completed. Even though I was there before my appointment he refused to see me or talk to me but instead took another patient in during my time. Very inconsiderate and arrogant.

I really like Dr Dirksen as a doctor and fellow human. I really do not like how the appointments are handled though. Today, for instance, I made an appointment for 10:15. I called around 9:30 and they told me to come in at 11 because appointments were behind. So I came in at 11. It's now 11:45 and I have yet to see my doctor. That's pretty normal for this office and I don't know who has this kind of time.
