Ratings for Dr. Mark Lindstrom
The two visits I had with in a couple of weeks of each other were 0ne and a half hours long which one hour was Waiting! I was there for a blood work check and talk and I ask him a question about a product I was considering using and he told me I would need to make a not her appointment for That! I never in all my years for doctoring ever had a dr. Say that before. I have also commented on something twice on something going on in my life and he never said a word in either of the appointments. And during the visit all he does is type on his little lab top, all his notes I guess so he does not have to do it later. There is more of that going on then face to face talking. I just went to other doctors that either have someone else doing that in the room or it is not done at all!
I saw Dr.Lindstrom due to debilitating heart rhythms. He ran a battery of tests and discovered that I was severely low in inter-cellular magnesium due to gluten intolerance. He's a brilliant physician. My whole family turned out to be gluten intolerant. This diagnosis saved my health and my family's health. The gluten intolerance was causing my anemia, osteoporosis, psoriasis, ... among other things. Eliminating gluten actually eliminated my son's learning disability.
I went in for abdominal pain, severe nausea, fatigue, and chest pain, and left with prescription for Prevacid. Two weeks later, I was in the hospital with an advanced lung and heart infection and a diagnosis of lupus, and required three surgeries to correct the damage that the undiagnosed infection caused to my heart. I wouldn't send my worst enemy to Dr. Lindstrom.
CPX scheduled. Reviewed meds, MD checked BP, listened to heart/breathing,looked in eyes, ran hands down sides/under armpits & across throat & tapped on knees-that was all.I was not in a gown & never layed down. MD always dictates with patient present & started dictating notes for med ck appt. When questioned-insurance pays for CPX but not med ck-he said he could not give discussed refill @ a CPX due to insurance laws, if I wanted a refill I would need to make another appointment. I told him I thought it absurd, everyone I know gets refills at CPX's. He refused to give refill. I told him-after over 4yrs-I would find a new Doctor. I left with no refill & my insurance was billed a physical @ $218. I don't feel I received a physical. Checking my records, my last Cholesterol ck was 6/05. fasting blood sugar 5/06, liver panel 5/06. After contacting the clinic mgr & lodging a complaint I received a refill. I'm protesting charge with Aetna. Copy of appt. note was not what I heard dictated.
