Ratings for Dr. R. BAUER Vaughters
Dr. Vaughters is an excellent Doctor, however his staff is the exact opposite. They manage to turn every appointment into a negative experience. Been waiting 3 weeks for my diabetes meds refills to be called into pharmacy. Staff is rude and do not seem to care about patients wellbeing.
Dr. Vaughters is very knowledgeable, professional, and courteous, and his staff has always been very helpful and treat me with the utmost respect. I especially appreciate that he did not rush to treat me for a thyroid disorder; but monitored my hormone levels until he was sure I didn't have the disease. I wish all medical professionals were as thorough! My only complaint is the wait time, which is probably unavoidable since he is the only endocrinologist in Aiken.
Dr Vaughter is an excellent doctor and has been very helpful. The staff however are RUDE and seem to be bothered when asked to do THEIR job. Been trying to get a PA on a prescription for almost 3 weeks. They still don't know what Im talking about even though Medicare has faxed them paper work and also the pharmacy has called them. The the staff i say, "If you don't like your job...Get another one!"
Staff is very unfriendly. Have never experienced a doctors office whose front offices staff are so rude. Don't know whose fault it is, but always overbooked. I understand thatncan happen, but the staff should at least let the waiting customers of the approximate wait time. I could gave rescheduled. Dr Vaughters was also quite rude when I mentioned this fact. Not MY fault...he's the one making all the $$$$!
I think Dr.Vaughters is an excellant Endocrinologist. As a practioner he is great. As an office executive, not so good. His staff leaves a lot to be desired. They don't return calls, rarely submit prescriptions / refills until backed into a corner. If you want something done you have to go to the office and stand there until it gets done. Poor office management.
Dr. Vaughters is very bright, and very helpful. If you sit in the waiting room and look at the dregs that waddle in there with their out-of-control diabetes then you understand the negative comments on this site. These people are too stupid to put down the candy bars that are killing them and much too stupid to recognize a good doctor when they have one.
I have been to the office several times. I have only seen the Dr. once, the other times I saw the PA. The staff, including the PA, spoke very harshly at times. They programed my insulin pump incorrectly, which caused other health issues. They always seemed to busy to re-check things, return a phone call, or schedule a visit. I have sat in the waiting room for hours at a time. They seem to be very bothered when I had questions regarding my health. I would have liked to have seem the Dr more than the PA.
The staff leaves a lot to be desired. I had to go back twice to get the "right" blood work done because they had called in the wrong order after not telling me what blood work was to be done and when (time of day) it had to be done. Took me a full week and 3 trips to get the blood drawn. The Dr. was better than some I have been to recently, but again, when his staff called me with the results, they talked about a condition that no one thought I had... and didn't mention what I came in the office to have checked at all. His office and practice would be top notch with better staff. I'll be going else where for less hassle and better service for now.
