Dr. Finesmith was impersonal & disinterested 4/25/2007

I saw Dr. Finesmith for an unexplained rash that had started to go away but had then reoccured. Although I went to urgent care and was told it was probably an allergic reaction, I decided to go see a dermatologist after it became inflamed again on my neck. Dr. Finesmith diagnosed me with pityriasis rosea and then pretty much sat there silently waiting for me to leave - no joke. I got up from my chair fumbling over my words and let myself out. I received no tips to ease the symptoms and no offer of a prescription antiviral drug (which I later read helps the majority of people speed up the healing process). The next morning I called Dr. Finesmith's office to speak to her about getting a prescription. I asked to speak to the doctor but she was busy. The receptionist said I could leave a message. I asked if she would be able to call me back that day and I was basically told "no". The receptionist took my message of the prescription request and then told me that if Dr. Finesmith agreed to have it filled she would just call it in to my pharmacy. I was exasperated and asked if I would at least get a call from the doctor telling me if she filled it or not, and the receptionist told me that SHE would call me - not Dr. Finesmith. The receptionist called me back 5 1/2 hours later - right before they closed for the day telling me they would not be giving me anything. I feel like I received horrifically substandard treatment and don't understand how any doctor could be so unconcerned about the welfare of her patients. more
