I'm a healthcare professional myself, but not a physician. I was referred to Jane Taylor by a surgeon who has a close working relationship with her.
When asked her opinion about various treatment recommendations, Dr Taylor could not have been more ambiguous on purpose, than any medical professional that I have seen in my life. And I have seen quite a few since I teach at a hospital and work in private practice as well.
I went there to ask about side effects of treatments that she suggested. Even when I specifically said to her, that I am there to hear her opinion as a dermatologist, since I'm not a physician, she replied ""just go research it on Medline"" with a condescending smirk- all the while her Physician Assistant standing on the side and sneering. I don't consider that professional, especially that they have you sitting there literally naked, wrapped in a 25-cent paper gown. they are not even willing to give you 2 min to get dressed, so that you can ask you questions.
Bottom line: i went in announcing to her I had made an appointment to ask some questions: I walked out without the answer to any of my question (no exaggeration is made here)
If this is how they treat a professional colleague, I wonder how a lay person is treated?
Being in the business of healthcare, I was very much conscious of the fact that I was being one annoying checkmark on her schedule of reaching the day's projected gross revenue.
