Patient Comments (2)
in Sammamish, WA |
Very very poor Doctor. Telling my mother she has cancer simply based off her history. No biopsy or further testing done. While patient was asking questions about a procedure involving a stent, dr ginger said the stent will be in all through chemo and radiation treatment. My mother is emotionally scarred from this experience. This doctor should not be allowed to practice medicine. Very negligent.
Seattle, WA |
Refused to give diet instructions stating she wanted a baseline. She then yelled at us condescendingly when the lab results came back abnormal stating that we should have changed the diet. Poor bedside manner. Also waited over an hour in the exam room with no apology from the doctor or staff.
