Ratings for Dr. Lawrence P. Endo
I have being a patient of Dr. Endo for more than a year. Every appointment we waste about 10 to 15 min. going over the same information he supposedly should already know by now about my case. The appointment always seems to be rushed and he never discusses with me the results of my tests. He also don't seem to pay much attention to what I have to say as he rushes me out of his office. In addition, in the end of every appointment you receive a summary of your appointment, the information presented to me in the last two appointments were dangerously wrong for example he had the dose of medication 10X higher than it should be and also it contained medication that I am not taking.
I have been a patient of Dr. Endo for a year. He is a good doctor, he seems knowledgeable. However, Dr. Endo seems a little judgmental and intrusive. For example, right now I am a childless house wife, and every time I have an appointment, Dr. Endo seems to have the urge to ask questions like: So, what you do with all your time since you don't have kids? So, although he seems to be a good doctor, I just don't feel comfortable with him.
I have been a patient of Dr. Endo's for 25 years. He is extremely patient, thoughtful and caring. I have lupus and it can be difficult to manage, however he and his nurse are there for me always. I have frequent blood work and my illness requires me to be on top of my condition. Dr. Endo respects my feelings and is very much on top of my sitution. He is an intelligent and very caring doctor.
Dr. Endo has been my doctor since my fibromyalgia started acting up in college. He's been consistently knowledgeable and helpful even when I needed prescriptions and was out of the country. He's the ONLY rheumatologist I've been to that thinks fibro is a real disease with real pain, and he's willing to do anything to help his patients.
I have seen Dr. Endo for three years. Prior to coming to him i had seen several doctors about a series of rapidly changing symptoms, none of whom coulod tell me anything useful or give me any releif from my pain. Dr. Endo read my bloodwork and diagnosed me with Reactive Arthritis, a highly variable disorder which my cousin also has (although his symptoms are different and it goes by a different name in Norway). Dr. Endo has always been very helpful and patient, taking the time to explain things even when i came in with a long list of questions. Whenever i still did not understand, all i had to do was say so and ask about the part of his explanation that was unclear and he will explain it to my satisfaction. Finally, i will stress that Dr. Endo obviously wants to solve my problems, always wants to understand what's going on with me, and is always current on the research.
I'd seen this man for possibly 14 years when I started having chest pain.He was on call the nite I went to the ER.He looked at my blood tests,gave me nitro,-it took away the pain. He discharged me with a Nitro prescription telling me stories about the stressed out solders in WWI that they thought they were having heart attacks.For TWO MONTHS he told me it was all in my head,until a GI specialist asked me if I've seen a Cardiologist.I Hadn't-not even in the hospital.I'm a Type 1 diabetic of 40 yrs.The Cardiologist I saw pulled the blood tests from the hospital from the nite he was on call, called me on a Saturday to tell me that from what she saw I had a Heart Attack.We needed to go in to find out where the blockage is-NOT If its there.I suffered for months with pain,popping Nitro pills only to go in to him for an EKG that never showed anything.He told me not to come back unless it was really bad. I left crying.I totally stand by what I've written and would welcome a challenge on this!
