Ratings for Dr. Carolyn L. Koenig
I agree with previous reviewers that Dr. Koenig hasn't any bedside manner to speak of. She and the nurses seem interested in running as many patients through the machine as possible. I feel rushed and as if I'm taking up more time than they can spare. While I think Dr. Koenig a competent diagnostician, she seems more comfortable with the mechanics, more interested in the disease than the patient as a person. Perhaps she's simply slow to warm to people as she's seemed more approachable and smiles a little more often the longer I've been with her. I prefer a doctor with a friendly, reassuring manner who listens well and carefully to my concerns and explains gently if s/he feels I have mistaken information or am worrying unnecessarily. I don't feel Dr. Koenig has those qualities to any extent. I've gone to her for three years and am changing to another physician.
Very unapproachable doctor. No bedside manner. Acts as if you are a burden to her. I have seen her 4 times now and have NEVER seen a smile on her face. I had pneumonia multiple times, when I told her that I would like a chest x-ray done she told me "just because you've had pneumonia before doesn't mean I have to get a chest xray everytime you are sick". I insisted and guess what..I HAD pneumonia AGAIN!! She is useless.
Advice seems to usually center around medications, and always top-of-the-line, state- of-the-art meds. Most of these meds are not covered by our insurance. Must be completely in the drug rep's pocket...Will likely switch to a doc with more experience and broader range treatments.
