At my first visit I made Andrew Fields aware of my numerous medical problems, he agreed to be my PCP anyway. As time went on he showed less interest in my complaints and made me feel like I was a burden to him, I even had to ask him to run routine blood tests. Without physical exams, blood work, or tests I was given prescriptions to ease symptoms. For example: I complained of ongoing (at least 6yrs) back pain, he gave me pain patches and sent me on my way. I knew I needed another Dr so I found a licensed MD. At my first visit I told her of the back pain, she ran her fingers up and down my back and knew something was wrong. She ordered an X-ray and found that the curves in my spine, below my skull and in my lower back, had straightened out, and I had a lot of knots in my back, so she referred me to a physical therapist. All it takes is a little time, experience, and knowledge to detect a problem. I feel like Andrew Fields has them all but he lacks compassion for patients, or maybe just for me. Therefore, I would recommend this practice but I would NOT recommend Andrew Fields. FYI, he wasn't my first choice anyway but all of the licensed MD's were booked too far in advanced so Andrew was the only one available. I guess I know why now!!!!
