What People Say About Dr. Scott Field, MD
Reply Flag
I have never seen Dr. Field in the office. I never will. He "treated" me in the hospital by denying every illness I've ever had, told me there was nothing wrong with me and recommended that I be discharged from the hospital. He didn't listen to me breathe or examine me at all. He refused to consult with the doctors on my medical team. He never asked how I was feeling. The worst bedside manner I have ever encountered. Luckily, the doctors dismissed his opinion faster than he dismissed me!
