Ratings for Dr. Lisa M. Myers
My husband is a patient of hers and he has not seen her in over a year. He always sees the nurse practitioner. He has an awful time getting the correct prescriptions and dealing with the office staff. I can't believe he has stuck with her for several years. Time for a new doctor! I marked knowledge as good, but we really don't know that to be a fact.
I visited this office in July of last year. I waited over 3 hours to see the doctor. The staff at the front desk is always rude. Especially when you call in to try and schedule. It is also very hard to schedule. I was due for a follow up in January and needed to reschedule, they couldn't accommodate me. I called again recently to try and get rescheduled and they told me I could not be seen until mid to late August.
Doctor spend majority of appointment discussing her night out with her nurse. Was not interested in listening to health issues/concerns related to condition. When labs came back, I called to speak to her because my medication needed to be adjusted based on my labs. Staff did not care. Nurse was incredibly rude. Would not recommend this doctor.
This clinic really needs a patient website. It is so hard to get through to the doctor to ask a question on medication that has been prescribed. I have been recently rediagnosed from a Type 2 to Type 1 diabetic. The only person I can get to call me back is a nurse who is giving me 2nd hand answers. I am very frustrated with this office. On my first visit there was a man who came in without an appointment who had questions about a pump. He had called several times and could get no one to return his calls so he instead came into the office to get his answers. That should have told me something then. If they had a patient's portal like they do with BMG groups I think the answers would come more readily but they don't ...so I stay confused.
Dr. Myers is one Dr. that I really look forward to going to see. She is very personable and fun. She does tell it like it is but not in a manner that does not make you mad but makes you want to do better. You can talk to her about anything and she will answer you. She also take time to go over everything that you want to talk about so you don't leave feeling like you don't know what's going on or feeling short changed. Would very highly recommend.
She is very blunt and will tell you the truth. She does not beat around the bush. She can be very helpful if you have your BS readings on paper so she can review them with you. Dont bother bringing in your carelink, they can not upload it at the office.
When I originally went to the group that Dr. Myers is in when I was diagnosed with diabetes 3 years ago, I had a doctor that I liked very much, but who left the practice to move to another region of the country. My second doctor in the group was totally rude...no bedside manner whatsoever. Well, third time's a charm! I started seeing Dr. Myers in June of '07, and from my first visit with her, I knew I had found someone with whom I clicked! She's very knowledgeable, listens to my questions and answers fully, and has a sense of humor...always hear her laughter before she even walks in the door! Best of all, she's my biggest cheerleader! Just her manner and attentiveness and motivation makes you want to follow "doctor's orders". When I reached a normal A1C at my visit yesterday and had lost 10 lbs. since I saw her two months ago, she was totally thrilled and expressed that! It's worth the $10 extra copay to see Dr. Myers to monitor my diabetes!
