Dr. Barbara Widom's Ratings
People seem to love her or hate her based on these reviews. I'm more - meh. I don't find her cold or uncaring or rude, but there is definitely a sense of being rushed through an appointment. I also think she has a short list of things that she knows how to treat and treats well, but if your problem is complicated I don't see her taking the time to figure out what is going on.
Agree with everything already said about the arrogance, lack of partnership and the unwillingness to listen and assist. Long, long wait times to see seen and the unwillingness to helpful. She is only somewhat successful due to the small area she practices in and the lack of competition. Sometimes the convenience id just not worth the aggravation and lack of quality care and follow-through.
Dr. Widom has only the best interest for her patients. She has helped me 9 years ago when I found out I was diabetic and now she helps my husband to keep us in check and we are very happy with her. Her staff is excellent and get back to you promptly , I really like her nurse Casey.
I started seeing Dr. Widom in 2011, despite all the negative ratings I saw online. The first few visits I had were fine. She was abrupt and did not spend much time with me (usually less than 10 minutes), but my condition has been under control so this didn't bother me. Today I went for an appointment, and finally got a taste of what the negative reviews were all about. Her office had not received my most recent lab work, and she berated me for not "following up". Apparently their policy is that it is the patient's responsibility, not the office staff, to ensure that lab reports are received (?). Further, she interrupted me repeatedly and wouldn't let me finish a sentence. She finished off the interaction with a thinly-veiled insult, and suggested I should see a GP in my own town. When I told the office staff I won't return, the staff member responded "I'll tell the office manager". She didn't even ask why.
This is the worst doctor I have ever seen. She is arrogant and unprofessional. It is totally a waste of time to see her. She does not let me talk and she gave me an option (ultimatum). She would not explain anything to me and left. total time spent was 2 minutes.
Was very pleased with my first two visits with her. For a Dr, she was prompt but never rushed me while in the office. Gave me ample time to get my history and spend time addressing my issues. Have had Type 1 Diabetes for nearly 40 years, she had great advise and tips and never talked down to me and respected my knowledge of the disease. Would highly reccommend her.
One of the worst doctors I have ever seen. Both her and her staff was horrible to deal with. Their communication skills are poor and bedside manner I would call none existent. I was referred to her after having thyroid cancer at 22. The last thing I need was an arrogant doctor that was not caring at all. I would not recommend her to my worst enemy. I choose to drive to Denver or Boulder rather than deal with Dr. Widom and her staff.
