Ratings for Dr. Cathy A. Carron
Dr. Carron requested unnecessary and costly blood work tests in addition to the normal tests that go along with an annual physical. I had already had these tests in the past and certainly did not need them again. However she requested them from the lab without my consent --- and these tests cost nearly $1600. Despite two months of trying to rectify this billing issue, her office continues to jerk me around and totally disregard me. Very unprofessional and unethical business practice.
First Strike: She lost my medical files and didn't send over my lab results. Second Strike: When asked for specialist recommendations, she said look it up in the Oxford Health Directory. Third Strike: After waiting 10 minutes at the receptionist, she canceled my appointment because she said I was late. Such nastiness and unprofessionalism I have never encountered before. DO NO USE HER.
I like Dr. Carron a lot! She's an excellent dr. I am one that does not need coddling and it looks like that's the issue with the other users. She is not on time, but the wait is worth it. Humorous, always a smile, and diagnoses are very thorough, she actually caught something that a prior dr. didn't. And if she doesn't know something thoroughly she recommends you to a specialist. Always what a general dr. should do.
While my experiences with Dr. Carron were average at best, I feel compelled to write a warning about her HORRIBLE physicians assistant. This person has possibly the worst bedside manner I have ever encountered. She's combative, hostile, patronizing, totally unhelpful. Whoever referred to her as a witch in the other comment is spot on. My interactions with her are so alarmingly unpleasant, that I am in the process of finding a new doctor. Stay away!
I saw Dr. Carron in Dec 2008 and had blood tests and an xray done. Both results were emailed to me, but the doctor never called to discuss them. After 4 weeks, and 7 emails and phone calls with specific questions, I have still not heard back from Dr. Carron. I would not recommend her.
Wow, by far the worst experience I've had at a doctor's office. The staff was both inconsiderate and incompetent. Went on the day before a holiday for help with severe food poisoning. Called ahead knowing it was close to a holiday and the receptionist tells me very enthusiastically to come in. Mistake. My reward is this witch Carron complaining endlessly about how she has a flight to catch (not that she was going to miss it anyway, I think she's just one of those people who likes to complain) rather than figuring out what was wrong with me. Had I not been delirious I would have been angrier. The assistant can't even find a vein for the iv, she's sticking me numrous times and I'm bleeding all over the place. The topper is that she somehow writes the prescription for the anti-nausea drug INCORRECTLY so CVS won't fill it that night unless they can talk to her directly. And surprise, surprise Carron ignores the cell # she gave me, leaving me in agony. DO NOT GO TO THIS PRACTICE!!!
The first time I went there I really liked Dr. Carron, as a person but I felt she gave out prescriptions way to easily and that I really didn't need them. She also pushed some "cosmeceuticals". After that I only saw the physician's assistant who was a total witch (and you know what word I really want to use). Dr. Carron is definitely a little wacky, and while I actually like her, I don't want her to be my doctor.
