Ratings for Dr. Steven J. Golombek
This Doctor has me out of his office in 5 minutes. Doesnt ask alot of questions or really look at you. But he does request you come back every 3 mos. (Im in remission with RA)This is scary if you are in a flare up in the future. Will he be aggressive??? Getting med's called in is a nightmare he doesnt tell the nurse when I asked at my appointment. Now Im in a flare up with no medication. I pay top dollar with Oxford Insurance for this in and out in 5 minute meat market.
Only reason I go to him is because there are no other rheumatologists in area. No bedside manner, does not review any labs with you, staff is not very helpful. He is more concerned with filling in his paperwork so he can "keep track on the computer of his patients." Don't go to him if you like to speak with your doctor.
Didn't care for this doctor. Did nothing for chronic back ache where all mri's and cts came up negative for bone involvement. Diagnosed me with some pulled muscle or something like that without tests or anything. Spent very little time with me. Problem is still present and may be Lyme disease. As a Rheumatologist he should of explored all avenues.
At first I thought he was fine, but as the years went on, and my symptoms were changing, and getting worse, he did not acknowledge these changes. Would just nod, and say "Don't take more than 2 Tylenols" I had burning in my fingertips, and feet, and could barely get through the day,a nd that was his response. Horrible. no bedside manner.
