Dr. Jonathan Bland's Ratings
After 20 years of service for myself and siblings.......I rate Dr. Bland as an excellent General Practitioner!!
Judging from some negative comments below....if you are looking for a doctor to fix your life....keep walking. If you want the facts, some measured support and to be treated like a capable adult, involved in your own health care and the personal responsiblities inherent in that care......Dr. Bland is your man. Don't be late...and oh, sure...sometimes he is a little bland!
By far the best doctor I've ever had. you can set your watch by him, if you have an appointment at 2pm he's seeing you at 2pm. He listens to his patients concerns and then gives you his reasoning behind a decision, and never rushes you out the door. He's personable and easy to talk to. It's never really nice going to the doctor's but with Dr Bland, the experience is the best it could possibly be.
Dr. Bland lived up to his name! He seemed genuinely unimpressed to see myself and my 3 year old. I brought my child to him because my regular Dr was away and she was having ongoing respiratory issues. He looked her over like a dog at a dog show, told me her mouth was full of cavities and that she had a cold. Later I found out she had no cavities and Asthma. I was, however, horrified. I don't think Dr. Bland is incompetent, I think he's just a jerk.
Dr.Bland may not be warm and fuzzy but he was very pleasant and always took the time to chat with me no matter how busy he was. If he didn`t know what was wrong he referred me on to a specialist (if warranted). One of the best Dr.s I`ve ever had, unfortunately we moved. I would recommend him to anyone.
Being my doctor for over 5 years, you usually have go go in with a diagnosis from someone else before he will do anything. He seems to be in a hurry to get you out the second you walk in. My advice is go into a walk in clinic and you will likely get someone who actually cares.
I saw Dr.Bland at a walk-in. He was paid to examine myself as well as my 2 yr old daughter. He looked at me and said I had the common cold. He glanced down at my daughter and said she had the same thing. I informed him that she had a fever for 5 days and he still said the common cold. 2 days later we went to our family doctor where we were actually examined and we both had broncitis and my daughter had an ear infection. It was unfortunate to have wasted his time and mine.
The best doctor ever. He reminds me of House (without the bad habit). Diagnosed me, repaired me, fixed me. Sent me to a specialist when needed. Made my quality of life 100% better. Kicked me out the door when I was wimpy... Don't blame him, most people are looking for a new mommy. Doesn't waste time with nonsense. Uses the correct tools to diagnose an illness.
WELL DO NOT EXPECT DR.BLAND TO BE PERFECT AFTER ALL HE IS HUMAN.IF HE HAS ANY FAULTS IT IS THAT HE ARTICULATES TO PATIENTS ON A PROFEESIONAL LEVEL THUS AND I HAVE FOUND IT HARD TO UNDERSTAND WHAT HE IS SAYING. DON,T BE IMPATIENT AND DO NOT EXPECT MEDS UNLESS IT IS WARRENTED, SPEAK TO HIM IN A VERY PRECISE MANNER AND REPEAT TILL U ARE SATISFIED HE HAS HEARD YOU AND UNDERSTANDS. REPITITION IS HELPFUL IF BACKED UP WITH A CERTAIN LEVEL OF KNOWLEDGE ON YOUR PART. HE CAN BE VERY GOOD IF YOU WORK WITH HIM. I HAVE SEEN HIM MANY TIMES SINCE LAST JULY GIVE HIM A CHANCE HE IS GOOD. DO WORK WITH YOUR DOCTOR. DR.BLAND WILL BE GOOD IF YOU INFORM HIM FACTUALLY.DON'T EXPECT MEDS FOR EVERY PROBLEM.
