This is an amazing practice. The staff and care I recieved was wonderful. It is easy to make an appointment and the doctors call you if you need their help. My doctor is dr G and my husband sees Dr Warrick. Their bedside manners are superb. I recommend this practice to all my friends.
This staff is consistently rude, inconsiderate, and judgmental to patients. If you are in pain this place will only make it worse. If you're having financial trouble and can't make a co-pay, Who cares that you've been treated there for five years, The nurse will say "what do you think this is a free clinic?" If you are placed for a callback , do not hold your breath, you will not receive it. The staff are more concerned with lounging and gossip than helping patients. To say that it is unsatisfactory is an incredible understatement. Lets put it this way. I would only refer my worst enemy to this place. Do yourself a favor don't waste the time, gas, or money. Care is something you will NOT receive here. You only leave distraught, disrespected, and discouraged. Good luck and God bless.
Normally I would not have been on this page except I was where I did not have my MDs phone number. I was surprised to find such a poor rating. But, I also know that those who are happy with a service are not as likely to take time to write a review as someone who is not pleased with services received. I first want to say I understand what it is like to have a physician treat me poorly, or I had that problem with my internist 20+ yrs ago. Despite my labs and input from a Dermatologist. he did not take my situation seriously. Except probably for rheumatoid arthritis , autoimmune diseases are difficult to diagnose.We generally "look good" despite fatigue and pain.
<br>However, not here, I have been a patient for over 20 yrs. I have nothing but wonderful things to report about my physician,Dr. Wolfe. I have not seen any other MD in group,
<br>But, have heard nothing but good things from other people that use the group. Also these reviews are 5 years old and no other bad comment has been written. Do not let those reviews discourage you from contacting them.
<br>My first visit was after a bad experience with my internist who did not believe I had Systemic Lupus regardless of my labs and dermatologist s input. I have had nothing but compassion and concern from Dr.Wolfe and the staff. He worked deligently to obtain approval for medications my insurance refused to pay for and I could not afford ( about $7,000 per treatment) when other medications were not working for me.
<br>I just could not let these reviews be considered the norm for the group as it is not.!
I hesitated before writing this, because I had a very negative experience here. However, if it saves someone else the pain, it's worth it. <br> <br>I was in terrible pain and was very excited to get an appointment with a rheumatologist. My doctor had been urging me to see someone, and it can be hard to get in to some places. I was very hopeful I would finally get a diagnosis. I wanted to know why I was hurting every day. <br> <br>I was trying to be helpful and wrote a medical history and gave it to the doctor when I walked in. I told him to just disregard whatever wasn't relevant. BIG MISTAKE!! He typed me as a hypochondriac right away. He admitted I had bursitis and gave me two cortisone shots, but didn't discuss the bursitis at all. Just said ""You have bursitis and do you want a shot."" Kind of like: take it or leave it---I was a kook anyway and what did it matter? <br>I told him I didn't feel good and he just said there was nothing wrong with me. After a ten minute exam. I ended up crying and left in tears. No doctor has ever made me feel so bad about myself. <br> <br>This becomes important because I shied away from all doctors for years. But I finally discovered what was wrong with me the day I saw this doctor. I have since been diagnosed with Rhuematoid Arthritis and Sjogren's Syndrome. I had a bulging disc that eventually ruptured into my spine and demanded next-day surgery to stop nerve damage. I had interstistial cystitis along with the bursitis. <br>This doctor made a snap decision that I was a hypochondriac and caused me years of pain and shame.
i understand different people see drs differernt ways ,but i have nothing to say except that rheumatology counsultants have done everything they could to help me . everything from labs,xrays and return vivits have also been pleaseant . sorry for your experience but i like this group
I waited three months and saved my 350 dollars as I do not have insurance. I have been in pain since January 2008. When I met Dr. Misischia I had hope. I was told I don't ""look"" like I have anything he could help with and the 350 dollars doesn't even pay his electric bill, but he would run some test. He seemed very discoraged to have to see me without insurance. My first test I was told came back with my muscle enezymes elevated, I ask what that could mean, no one knew. I was given a perscription that I was afraid to take because of a previous allergic reaction, so the Dr gave me a central nervous system muscle relaxer. I took it every six hours as prescribed until I called to see if I could also take asprin. I was told no. It was making me comfortabe except for my hands. Then I was told I wasn't supposed to take it around the clock. I went back to my family Dr because my next appt wasn't for 3 more months and without taking the medicine I am still in a considerable amount of pain. He ran a second set of the same test to compare to the first. He hoped that the muscle relaxer would have lowered my muscle enzymes. I wes told the results were higher and they would fax the results to Misischias office. On the phone Misischia says all my test are normal what do I want? The other doctor ran the test, he ought to be the one to deal with it. He said they didn't know what they were doing. He said he will call me in another script for the muscle relaxers, I told him I still have them, I was told not to take them around the clock. In six hours after feeling better it is extremely depressing to have the pain again. I told him I need a doctor that cared and he was not the man for me. I will not see him again. I hurt, I need help, I need a doctor with compassion who cares.
