Patient Comments (5)
Wisconsin Rapids, WI |
BEWARE, I had a shot in my hand and the pain was so intense I couldn't sleep. I called the next day and went right in. His nurse was rude and he said that this never happened before. I went to physical therapy that day. I suffered for 2 weeks. I had to go back for test results and i confronted him on his neglect. He insisted that this has never happened and rolled his eyes. I looked online and it is a common reaction. I reported my experience to his administrator.

Very unprofessional. Received a shot in the hand. 20 minutes later I could not stand the pain. Went back and he told me I was imagining it and I was hysterical. He has never had a problem before. he was very condescending and never even looked at my hand. Next day I have a bruise and my hand is swollen. I will not go back.
He is awkward to talk to. Does not listen, or answer questions well. He insisted that I had certain symptoms when I repeatedly told him I did not. I felt talked down to and at times mocked. I don't usually leave reviews, good or bad, but I would not waste your time or money. I am now starting over and seeing a different Dr.

Excellent doctor. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
in Minocqua, WI |
Very unprofessional, Socially awkward and unable to accurately explain his procedures. Dr. Hitchcock ignores the patient's feelings and questions and literally demeans other professions and lets his arrogant's out verbally as I quote he stated to me when you go to medical school then you can come talk to me. I have never been talked to like that in my life nor have I ever given a bad review about someone. I guess there is a first time for everything. PLEASE BE CAUTIOUS WITH THIS DR.
