Ratings for Dr. Stephanie S. Prior
When I went to her, she was fine. She ordered the tests I asked for. Often my calls are not returned by the staff though when they are returned they are okay. It is difficult to get an appointment to see her--she is so booked up. My insurance allows me to see a specialist without a referral, but I would like to know whom Dr. Prior might recommend. However, the staff say I have to make an appointment and see Dr. Prior to get a recommendation, but it takes forever to get to see her. So as soon as I can, I am going to find a different doctor.
I agree with the previous comments made. She is not attentive to patient's needs. She is biased, inconsiderate,and rude. Does not work with patient towards finding solutions to medical issues/concerns that are comfortable for both physician and patient. Appears that she does not do research, or prepare for individual patients needs. Difficult to discuss concerns with, and one must wonder if she ever reads a patient's file prior to seeing them. One does not feel supported, but more defensive. Do not feel that she provides an safe, supportive environment to explore or discuss medical issues. Feel rushed through appointment. Leave there feeling worse than before I arrived to see her, as well as frustrated. This woman does not listen, omitting a sense of not caring.
Does not listen to patients. Horrible care, as you are unable to discuss any concerns with her. All she could say for BP issues was "limit salt" when my next doctor found me to be sodium deficient! She does not know how to identify issues that may not be her idea. When problems arose and I needed help, she was unavailable and staff was not interested in making an appointment. Left her practice in a hurry. I do not recommend at all.
I went to this md in crisis. At risk for eminant grand mal seizure, and in severe pain. She did not check my vitals (which were too high when the assistant tried to take them), she did not check the site of past surgery that was my chief complaint, she did nothing except listen to my lungs, and through my tears, gave me a huge smile, and told me to go to a "detox". She left me at risk for seizure, and left me in pain. two days later, I was at Jordan Hospital ER, on a heart monitor with dangerous blood pressure readings (190/110), my beats per minute were taching at 130, dealing with pain and anxiety. Dr. Kim Maloney, the er doctor on, managed to stop the seizure from coming on and managed to bring my bp and heart rate down to normal, I left the hospital with pain management and no anxiety.
