Ratings for Dr. Margo V. Budman
My sister came to see her. She was in incredible pain. She had the starting of a Rheumatic Disease. The symptoms were easy to tell. She say with her for a couple of minutes, gave her a Creme and pills. Then, Bye Bye! No statement of a follow-up appt. She was treated like an assembly line patient. She then saw an eye dr who gave his opinion of what he thought it was. We saw the right Dr. and she confirmed it! I won't say patient negligence. Look at it as a warning light to spend more quality time with your patients!
This Doctor should not be practicing medicine. I went the her 8 years I never got a physical and I was a heavy smoker for 50+ years and she never did a chest X-ray. Now I have stage 3 cancer and it took my dermatologist to suspect I might have cancer and urged me to get a checkup.
Dr. Budman was simple and quick to schedule an appointment with, always saw me on time, spent enough time, and shows a great deal of empathy. She is friendly, warm and approachable. She calls to follow-up and in my opinion is an outstanding physician.
She can be very dismissive. I feel as though she is talking down to me during our visits and that she doesn't believe me. When I get really sick I don't even want to go there because I know I'm going to waste my time and money on a doctor who doesn't ever seem to address my health problems. She used to be great, but lately she hasn't been helpful at all, sometimes bordering on rude. I referred two people two her and they are both having the same issues.
Was referred to a cardiologist through planned parenthood who diagnosed heart condition (SVT). Holter test showed needed ablative surgery, but Dr. Budman's office read the report as "normal rhythm," and sent me a letter telling me not to worry. Have had month long unexplained bleeding, was handed birth control and told to "call her in a month if it didnt clear up." even though have never had unexplained bleeding in over 10 years of menstural cycles. Was referred to gyn for ovarian cysts, and doctors would not communicate with eachother, leaving me stuck in the middle. Was juggled between doctors, and made to feel like I should have known better when I tried to get information from them.
