Dr Provider name locked. 's staff arranged my husband's appointment through me, and they were pleasant on the phone and assuring. The appoinment was actually moved up to earlier on the appointment day, which we were able to accomodate. My husband was able input his medical history info through their website's online system; however, it turns out it somehow didn't make it, so the staff took down the info orally at the office. We had a minimal wait time to see the doctor (around 20 min maybe), and he thoroughly explained the condition from the MRI and our options, of which immediate surgery was the best given his diagnosis. Within 2-3 hours we went to the hospital and then through the admissions process. The doctor and his staff were excellent. In fact, while at the hospital I called the insurance company to confirm everything was going to be covered, and it turns out his staff had already done that! (You can't confirm enough these days, but I was happy to find a doctor's office that actually does their homework, and timely!) The out-patient procedure was quick and successful with immediate pain relief upon awakening. Dr Provider name locked. called right after the procedure to let me know how it went. The follow up appointment went well, and we hope we don't see Dr Provider name locked. again anytime soon (only because we plan on being healthy!), but if we ever need a neurosurgeon again for us or anyone we know, we highly recommend him!- Tracy A.
After consulting multiple medical professionals, I was told that in St. Provider name locked. , the doctor with the most expertise on skull base tumors, the most highly recommended, was Dr. Provider name locked. . I think for most patients, he would be an ideal choice.- Elonka D.
Overall very disappointing, even psychologically painful. He seems to have a rather touchy ego and a cool, impersonal manner.
You get a diagnosis and you are an educational experience for his underling---and that's it.
I think he cares in general, if he can help you without risking his reputation, he will, even I could see some of that. And there is no doubt he's competent. I think he is basically compassionate, if you don't offend him.
But he's naturally used to be fawned over, and very used to people hanging on his every word. I think that's so true that having someone ask for an explanation of something is like questioning the Pope on his interpretation of the Bible....that's the shock I thought I saw just before he snapped at me.
It seems he may have forgotten that "why" is an okay question to ask, and that, though he is a highly paid and brilliant technician/diagnostician/researcher, the patient is (surprise!) ultimately still there not as a research object or learning experience for trainees, but as a paying customer in very much in need of something. If they can't be helped, knowing why is part of the service they are paying for!
Emotional intelligence is a skill, too.
