This doctor got into medicine for the wrong reasons, as far as I am concerned. She completely lacked any kind of warmth, caring or concern for those just involved in an traumatic and painful accident and in fact harrassed us with accusatory comments which were completely offbase and untrue. Her examinations were grossly inadequate, her treatment was without regard to the welfare of us as patients to treat out pain and suffering, and seems to think ibuprofen is adequate to treat severe pain for numerous painful orthopedic fractures. She was not only unkind, she said she didn't care if we sought other doctors due to the fact that we protested one of the weakest pain analgesics would not be adequate for treatment for these injuries, and for doing so she said we ""were manipulating the system"". Her system apparently didn't involve running any tests, or plans for follow up or referralls to orthopedists, neurologists or pain management, despite having asked for these things. Her CNA didn't know how to take b/p or even recheck when she couldnt recall the score on mine. My girlfriend is in terrible pain, and though uninsured and we are paying out of pocket, now we will have to add paying for a new PC physician to our list of insults incurred. Her nurse suggested that if we got a pain management doctor that something sufficient would be prescribed for pain in the meantime, which apparently meant ibuprofen, for severe PAIN! This doctor suggests it is ADC policy. If so I won't find another ADC doc again. It is inhumane, and has left us both feeling prejudged, degraded, and completely treated without respect during our hardest days. She even had the nerve to talk about how she lost a nurse to a similar accident. One would think that would have made her more caring, not hostile! Pain management isn't her specialty, quite obviously, but it is part of general care, especially after trauma. If she can't prescribe in this instance she should make the proper referral
Pros: you can get a call back after a few days on referrals, if you are persistent.
Cons: this doctor makes me wonder what happened to the medical profession's interest in the patient
