Dr. Andrew T. Trobridge's Ratings
Saw him several times in 2007-2008 and his office staff through Ball -- at that time--were horrible, but he was great. Saw him in 2015 and was really surprised. His nurse is very rude. He seemed more like a business man than the dr I knew and trusted prior. I don't know what the change is, but he seems very different. Indifferent night be a better term. Was totally caught off guard.
This Dr. only wants you to Let him cut into you and do some sort of implant in your spine. My pain is totally unassociated with my back but he totally ignored the source of my pain and rudely interrupted and was talking over me to his nurse like I wasn't even there when I tried to explain my pain. He didn't care at all. When I was leaving after my 5 min. exam he had ordered xrays of my back and not my shattered feet. Is he stupid or just totally unempathetic. No doubt he is cold and uncaring about those in severe pain but why I ask is he even considered a pain Dr.? He has nothing to offer if you have a painful condition that doesn't involve your back and from what I see from all of the bad reviews not much in that department either.

He was one and half hrs late and unfamiliar with the case in spite of medical records being sent 1 week prior. Works with a surgery clinic that sells stimulators for back pain. He tried to sell me one too. I talked to 3 friends I knew who had back stimulators and all are living in so much pain. He did not seem to listen judged by verbal feedback I recieved from him. I think he is making money selling stimulators. Very flipant and office will not return calls. I just wanted to get out of there and run.
very rude staff mrs angie whatever her name is prescribed me lyrica and said I had fibromyalgia when 5 other doctors all agreed on what was wrong with my back before I was even sent to see dr trobridge what a crackpot pain clinic and I hope major hospital finds out what really goes on there and has them removed
I've seen him 5 times in the past 6 wks, shortest wait has been two hours. You have to take a # to check-in at the Muncie office & it takes about 20 minutes just to sign in. My 1st visit wait was 3 hours in the waiting/exam rooms & the Dr. spent less than 3 minutes with me. He said I needed steriod injections and rapidly rattled off the side effects while he performed a 45 second "exam"-squeeze my fingers, pull, push. He did exactly nothing to help my pain. He performed two procedures that didn't help & when I told him the injections didn't help he told me we just need to do 2 more. After a visit to the ER, I called and left a message for him (or PA)to call me Re:next steps. When I didn't hear back, I called and was rudely told my message was never taken and if I want to talk to him (despite my 5 visits in the prior month), I need to make an appt.I swear he tries to keep you in pain so he can do more expensive procedures. If you need pain Rx forget it - he acts like you are a junkie.
On my initial and only visit, Dr. Trobridge was an hour late for my appointment. Then once he came in, he was totally unfamiliar with my pain history & my disease because he didn't have my records so I waited another hour while his staff requested the records they should have already had through the referral process. When he did come back, he walked out on our discussion twice to answer other doctors calls & left me waiting for another 45 minutes in total. So out of 3 hrs in his office, I met with the doctor for a total of 15 broken up minutes as a new patient. He was very flippant with me, & very unconcerned & uncaring about my condition. He had extremely little knowledge of my illness, but didn't show any interest in learning. I felt he didn't truly understand the severe pain I deal with every day due to my illness. All he talked about was getting me off the pain medication. I would love to be off pain meds but until I am rid of my disease I don't see it as a possibility. Frustrated
Dr. Trobridge worked me in twice in a week. Once for office appt. and follow up MRI, then for an epidural injection. I was in so much pain before, after his evaluation and treatment of my specific problem I was able to return to work the same week. He was thorough and explained everything to me and my husband. He even followed up w/ a personal call to check on me.
