Patient Comments (6)
DeFuniak Springs, FL |
My husband is a "new" heart patient and we were referred to Dr Phlaum for our initial visit. We saw him briefly at this visit, his ARNP handled the visit. The office scheduled a heart cath for the following week and ended up putting in a stent so he spent the night in the hospital to be monitored. Dr. Phlaum never talked to us about continuation of care or what happens next. We were so disappointed with this Doctor that we found a different cardiologist for our follow-up appointment.

Patient beware. Unless you like being belittled, devalued and your disease trivialized. My heart symptoms disabled me but he told me that it's all a fantasy. I wish it was a fantasy or some bad dream. Seeing this "doctor" was truly a nightmare.

This guy will kill you. He never didd catheterization. Botched an esopholgal xray behind the heart, diagnosed diabetes, non existed, failed to diagnosed gall bladder infection, diagnosed heart disease which r n I had none, was he as rtf valve issue and now dying from heart failure. Went into shock from too much potassium to the heart, has no bedside manner and the most arrogant Igot of any doctor I have ever, my internist like the sacred heart hospital Group I because of Phlaum's incompetence,
in Rosemary Beach, FL |
Very matter of fact and dismissive about my diagnosis. Essentially gave me what I perceived as a death sentence and sent me on my way. No discussion, no useful info to help me cope, no compassion. My dog gets more humane treatment from the vet. I am still in shock and struggling to understand the meaning and significance and impications of what he said and where to go from here. He never said to make another appointment so I gathered I'd be dead before too long. Horrible experience.

Seen Dr. Phlaum a total of 2 minutes in 2 months dealing with practice. Staff was short/ somewhat rude and not interested in finding a solution for my specific and special problem. They use the Band-aid approach. When I questioned treatment options, and asked questions about Meds being prescribed I was treated with indifference. Would not recomend, for me a total waste of time. If your seeking compassion for your heart condition I would seek treatment elsewhere. Brian Ragland

Spent little time with me. Minimal explanation of condition and medication. Expected to review and ask questions about test results, but was seen by nurse practitioner instead without being informed, yet record said I was seen by him.
