Ratings for Dr. Louis J. Volpicelli
Started out feeling like I was in good hands. Five weeks later I am left wondering? I feel left out the loop with my condition and haven't had my MRI read to me with it shown on a screen. I was also wrongly told of what I should have been doing in reporting my condition to my Boss? I was left upset and confused and feel a trust has been broken.
I have never had such a negative experience with a Dr. This man treated me for 5 weeks and it just got worse every week. The attitude he and his staff had was horrible. He started out the first week by saying that he had a plan, he was treating me for two torn ligaments in my ankle - he said - and put me in 'the boot' to immobilize it. 4 weeks later, he told me to begin moving it slightly and sleeping without any brace, which I did and felt excruciating pain when I inadvertently moved my foot in my sleep. This has continued, and when I ask him about it, he says that I am 'fine', the knifing pain in my ankle is normal and I should just ice it and take advil. This Dr does not listen to what the patient actually tells him, and instead just made me feel like I was a complainer. I had to ask for my own MRI after 5 weeks. Meanwhile, I can barely move my right foot bc he had it immobilized for too long, and am now going to see another Dr.
