Ratings for Dr. Brian Conway
I've known Dr Conway for a while now and I can honestly say he's getting worse and worse. I saw him recently and was treated exceptionally awful, he was yelling at me the whole 5 minutes, I was not allowed to say anything and he was babbling the whole time to himself. I was told by his rude staff that he was under a lot of pressure lately but that is no excuse. He missed a lot of things in the past, he never allows me to ask questions and he is always rude but lately he's gotten worse. My last time at his office was my last time. I will never go back there again.
Dr Conway can be helpful (on those rare occasions when he pulls his head from where its firmly planted) when hes not treating you like an imbicile or a child. As of today I have dropped him, as I find his approach overbearing, patronizing, or extremely rude at the best of times.
Dr Conway and his team at the VIDC are absolutely amazing. Dr Conway is a very Humble individual in my view, and an extremely caring and dedicated specialist. One thing me and my wife noticed since I have been a patient at the VIDC,is that Dr Conway treats his staff like equals. I could write pages on the my doctor and how amazing he is. I am consider myself to be blessed to place in his knowledgeable and capable hands!
I switched doctors.....I did not receive my cd4 count for over 1 year. My CD4 was always good prior to that since I live well, eat well, excercize and take vitamins....so I got my medication and was pushed through the system. But my cd4 is vital information. I wanted and needed to know....the Pharmacy told me to make an appointment,,,,I called and NEVER returned my calls. So I went in person to simply make an appointment. The receptionist gave me a DIRTY LOOK and said she was too busy. I asked who is in charge of making appointments...my CD4 is VITAL and CRUCIAL knowledge and an important for my HEALTH...I nearly DIED so I wanted this information. She shrugged me off and would not speak to me. Doctor Conway was right there..he would not even look at me,,,did not even turn around (it was a few days before Christmas) not even a hello let alone my VITAL health information. I'm supposed to get this 4 TIMES A YEAR.I could not even get an appointment...did not know my cd4 for a year!
I think Conway is one of the best, IF not the best HIV specialist. I noticed one person commenting he is condescending. I do NOT find that true at all. I can see how someone MAY perceive that. But he never talks down to the person; ONLY the behaviour. If you are not taking care of your health and NOT leading a good, clean life, he MAY critize your behaviour...but NEVER the person. He does not have "inflated ego" as someone put in their review. I am one of his patients and I take care of myself and my health. He has been nothing but respectful of me. MY FIRST impression was that Dr. Conway treated me like an EQUAL. I have nothing but good things to say about him. I went from my death bed with CD4 count of only 20. Now I have nearly 1000 and I work and nearly paid off my mortgage. I got all my energy back...and hope for the future. If someone is doing drugs, needles and practicing unsafe sex and so on, most people would judge you ... is is NOT an "EGO" thing.
