I had a pinched nerve. I was not able to get in with my primary care doctor for a few months so I took the soonest appointment available which was with Dr. Schmidt. When she came into the room she was very short and asked me why I wasn’t seeing my primary. When I tried to explain my current issue, I was cut off and told in a condescending manner that I should see my regular doctor. When I told her I could not take a certain type of medication (due to a contraindication), I was told “well what do you want me to do? Tell me what you want.” I tried to continue to explain my problem and was told “You know what, a lot of MY patients are trying to get in to see me, and I am here dealing with this”…I was stunned. She did not even offer to perform a physical exam. As I left the room, she made a snide remark that “this is the problem with scheduling”. As a medical professional myself, if I ever talked to a patient that way I would be fired. It is unacceptable to treat patients in this way. This visit was a waste of my time, my pain was not resolved, and thankfully the manager refunded my copay. I will never have a visit with Dr. Schmidt again.
