trying to talk to dr Conkright or his assistant re: my mom his patient. Impossible to get call back. Had to take her to doctors ER 7/9. Took paperwork by his office , rudest lady ever at reception desk. I mean hateful, wish I could Speak with a Manager. Patient ALMEDA WEST DOb 11/25/26. I am Karen Miller 7068360748. She is deaf, and dad’s memory is going, that’s why I’ve been trying to make all calls. He needs to know how inefficient his staff is

Karen, thank you for sharing your experience. We...Read More
He made me feel very very very uncomfortable to the point where I wanted to crawl out the office .He did not want to prescribe me certain meds that I've been taking consistently for years that I was stable on and received with no problem from my past M.D. pcp. Not even with proof of my medical records from past years. His words were ^ I am not prescribing you that*!I was like wow this is not the doctor for me. He did not seem to care about anything I had to say It was time to push forward.Next!

Dr. Conkright is friendly and puts you at ease. He listens and acts with concern for the patient. He is easy to talk to and very empathetic in his response. His treatment is usually appropriate and helps. He is quick to refer when necessary.
