My visit with Dr. Degenhardt was horrible he spent 6 minutes and during that time he poked my shoulder 3 times with his finger told me it was calcium buildup & do I want a cortisone shot & if not today then just let him know when I'm ready then he laughted and walked out the door this was the worst doctor I've ever seen he's rude, in a hurry & informed me nothing of my condition, he comes to our clinic in Gualala May be he thinks he's on vacation & can't be bothered.

I did not have a good experience with Dr. Degenhardt. The office was over busy, staff were distracted and uncaring and the Dr. had too little time to give a full exam. As a result gave an incomplete and wrong diagnosis.
