What People Say About Dr. Susan Probst, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I had gone to her because I had no other option. She has no bedside manner, is horrible, won't believe you, will accuse you of faking symptoms for personal gain, then when she finds out what you were saying was right about YOUR OWN HEALTH, will act like you still are the problem. I also have never had weight problems in my life, I've always been thin. She has "The Weight is Over" posters (trying to be clever with play on words) all over the office, and told me she thinks I would benefit from her weight loss medication. She is one of the worst doctors I've ever seen. Do not go to this office, you will regret it. The staff is also very inconsiderate and unprofessional. I finally was able to leave this office and never plan on returning.

I have tried my best to work with this office for almost 2 years. Every single solitary time there is a mess up. Appointments made, then you get there and you have no appointment, labs drawn, no follow up, prescriptions ordered and paid for in advance, go to pick up and not record of payment, pulling credit card statements to prove I paid for the prescriptions, because oh yeah, they do not give receipts for payments received, pharmacy requesting refills, 3 times, no response. My advice? RUN

We also have comments regarding the poor office staff. We had an appointment scheduled a month ahead. We received a call a few days ago a week ahead of the appointment confirming a different date and time! We then went to our scheduled appointment and were told that we didn't have and appointment that day! They had to "wait and see if they could fit me in." and then we waited an hour! This is highly inconsiderate for a doctor and her staff to fool patients multiple times for one trip!

I was using Dr Probst for years. I also saw Beth. Today I was forced to leave this office. The reason was that I had an appointment made last year for 2/14/17. I work so I cannot get back to my phone calls right away. When I was able to hear my voice mail I was told by the caller "If you cannot call me back I will have to cancel your appointment on 2/14/17, mind you today was 2/7/17. I called back and the office was closed and the options were not working. A nasty person left the message.
