MDlive scheduled me with this "doctor" for a skin consult. He said skin irritations could not be examined very well over the phone. I included all of this informaiton in my health history before I requested a Dr. After explaining that he could not help me he hung up the phone in my face. Very disappointed. A waist of money is what MDLIVE is.

I waited an hour and a half to be seen. When I was finally taken back, they did not know what my condition was and each time I attempted to provide input on my treatment, I was either shot down, told it was "ridiculous" or just steamrolled over in favor of what he wanted me to do. He didn't even know what my medical condition was and said he would have to research it despite already prescribing medication for it. He was too busy talking and not listening to me to even understand my concerns.

The arrogance of this doctor is appalling. Zero interest in hearing my medical history for an issue that reoccurs 2-3 times every year. I know my symptoms. I've had this issue so many times that I know what it is when it happens. He didn't care. Tried to tell him what treatment my previous physician took to successfully heal me every single time. He didn't care. My insurance changed so gave MDLive and this guy a try. Never again. Do yourself a favor, stay away. You get what you pay for.
