Ratings for Dr. Stephanie A. Booth
Worst doctor I have ever seen. Went to an appointment to talk to her about transferring to her office from pediatric rheumatology. When we left the office we thought everything was great. 3 months later when I was having a flair and went into the emergency room, we called her and was notified she was no longer my doctor! Completely unaware. Don't know why she suddenly dropped me without a phone call. When I called the office, the staff were VERY rude. Now she has my insurance all screwed up because we had all the paperwork and records transferred to her office. BEWARE
This is painful. I LOVE Dr. Booth. She knows her stuff - we have a fantastic working relationship - she doesn't make me feel less than for being informed about my disease and medications. She was supportive with my experimental phase through alternative medicine. BUT. She is not a good office manager and business owner. Crystal is terrible. She is sweet and I think she means well, but if I had a choice of putting my head through a brick wall and calling her... well... ouch. The problem is there is no way to send a message to Dr. Booth without going through Crystal. Crystal can barely talk in complete sentences - how can I trust that she is conveying complicated medical questions? Dr. Booth - I want to continue our good working relationship, but I just can't handle Crystal anymore. I'm sorry.
Her nurse is god awful. Crystal is completely incompetent and rude. Her staff has absolutely no common sense. There is a reason her partner, Dr. Sayers, is ranked one of the top rheumatologists in Austin and she isn't. Dr. Booth is arrogant and has terrible patient care. I wouldn't recommend this doctor to my worst enemy. I've never written a review before but I feel like it's my civic duty to warn you against this cluster f**k called a doctors office.
Very good doctor but she simply has a staff nurse that is incompetent. The nurse does not follow up with meds, reports or insurance certifications and lies about it. Simply had to find another doctor. You will get good treatment from Dr Booth but when you can't get your meds or blood work done because of a nurse that just doesn't keep up it simply isn't worth it.
Honestly, i love Dr Booth and have seen her for many years even though they no longer accept my insurance. That being said when she got a new assistant, Crystal it has been terrible. I'm done. Shopping for a new Dr now, which is terrible because i like Dr Booth and i've never been made to wait as others have noted. Every time i need an RX refill it is just such a hassle to deal with Crystal. She doesn't communicate well and it is like pulling teeth to get options laid out. I asked some friends for a referral and one of them responded that she really likes Dr Booth but that her staff is terrible... Bingo....
I read some of the comments regarding Dr. Booth and her staff. I can honestly say that yes at times there is an hour delay from your appointment time and actually seeing Dr. Booth however I feel this is due to the fact that she takes the time to listen to you and discusses the treatments she feels is best and gets your opinion on the suggestions. I feel like this is a partnership between doctor and patient. RA is a hard disease to treat. My sister also has RA, she lives south of Houstion, and has gone the same gambit of trial and error in the medications. Dr. Booth is very honest when she says that medications is a trial to see which medications are effective as each case if unique in how the patient responds. I will continue to see Dr. Booth as I have total faith in her.
