It takes weeks to hear back from this doctor, even for medication refills, which you can imagine, is unacceptable and the opposite of healing. I do not recommend this doctor, nor anyone else in his office.

Dr. Jones overbooks appointments, and often his pharmacist sees patients to ease his schedule. His staff is non-responsive, and even when they respond they do not do what they say or is needed. Test results can take 6-8 months to appear in charts, or be conveyed to patients. Otherwise, he seems like a good endocrinologist - if you can get him on a day where he can spend time with the patient.

I was not impressed with this doctor at all. Within the first 5 minutes he was wanting to put me on cholesterol medication and I don't have high cholesterol. I was not seeing him in regards to my cholesterol either. I was there for a thyroid consultation and he was not helpful with answering my questions. He did not look me in the eyes. He seemed to hurry and not have time. I don't feel as though he listened to me at all. I was disappointed & sought a second opinion from another endocrinologist.

He was very cold and detached. He didn't even look at me during the appointment and called me 'ma'am'. I had tests done ahead of time and took those in with me.. he asked why I did that.. cast them aside and re-ordered the same tests which we had to pay for all over again. When he did prescribe Armour for my thyroid, he didn't say a word about coming back in to check thyroid levels in 4-6 weeks so that the med can be adjusted. He doesn't seem to know much about thyroid treatment.
