Ratings for Dr. Michael DiTeresa
This doc used to be excellent, taking his time and thinking outside the box most Western medicine folks stay in. My physical was him taking my blood pressure with legs dangling and arm hanging down over my sleeve, then prescribing me a dose of BP meds that I had been on 2 years before as I lost 65 pounds...really? He ordered labs without discussing what was being ordered. His office staff coded the labs wrong so instead of getting free labs as part of my physical, I got billed. The staff won't fix it even after my bill was sent to collections by the lab. There are always excuses, the lab coder is not there, the lab coder no longer works here, etc. They will never commit to taking care of it. They don't care and it is no wonder they have signs all over the office and exam rooms warning you to be nice or keep your thoughts to yourself. Too bad this doc and his staff went the way of 10-minute appointments and poor patient service.
My wife and I have had Doctor Diteresa now for many years, he is a dedicated diagnostician is caring, honest, very quick in working with his patients, Rated as one of the Top 100 Doctor's in America, listens to his patients, respects his patients for their concerns/thoughts and their time. His staff and Mother work with him and pay close attention to the patients details to get the many whom have this fine Doctor as their primary care Phx. Exceptional!
BEWARE: This hack just about killed me! The short version is that I have PANHYPOPITUITARISM. For a year, he put me on a low dose of hydrocortisone as a replacement for cortisone acetate. When I told him I was feeling tired a lot, he said I might have low iron and tried to send me for a colonoscopy! I went to another doctor at my wife's suggestion and he sent me to an endochronologist who immediately quadrupled my dose of hydrocortisone and told me that my salt level was so low, they normally hospitalize patients at that point!!!!! Luckily, I am doing just fine now. But a colonoscopy???? Maybe he had a friend that needed some business!!!!!
Mislead by the office staff. I made an appt as a new patient for my husband and I for our yearly exam/physical on my first visit. After a 5 minute visit I was charged for a meet and greet. Very disappointed because the DR was very nice and seemed knowledgeable. I refused to be SCAMMED into paying for another office visit that wasn't needed and I won't return. I will find another DR's office that doesn't have to lie to get you in the door. They knew I was there for a physical. NOT a meet and greet. I even told the Dr what we were there for. He gave us paperwork for blood work, checked our hearts/lungs and BP. Mind you my husband took off work to have a physical not a meet and greet. I can't believe they can even get away with this and the lady had the audacity to say she DID tell me that it was a meet and greet…those words never came out of her mouth over the phone. Because if they had I would have never had my husband miss work for such a ridiculous waste of time! All they had to do what be honest from the start and this review would have been much different.
