Ratings for Dr. W. Gene Pead
Dr. Pead was paged or given messages to call us several times, and never responded to any of them. Either his staff didn't give the messages or he ignored them. He failed to send a prescription to a pharmacy, ignored 2 messages to send it as soon as he was able, and it results in vomiting blood and an emergency visit. I could never recommend him.
Office staff is rude beyond belief. There is no follow up with testing or results. During my exam a lump in my breast was found. He told me I needed a diagnostic mammogram and that he would send in an order. He told me call the office if I didn't hear from the hospital the next day about scheduling the mammogram. I didn't hear and when I called the office was closed for the day. The next day, I called Dr Pead's office and the receptionist was rude and short. She said the order was sent and didn't know why but she would try and resend it and hung up on me. I called the hospital again to see if the order was received and it still was not there. I tried calling Dr. Pead's office back and again they are closed for the day. Impossible to get a hold of and when you do talk to someone they are put out to even help answer questions. I know it is just a job to them but a possible breast cancer diagnosis is life changing for me and I would assume treating it sooner rather than later would be ideal.
My experience with Dr Pead has been very disappointing. Struggling with infertility has been a very emotional time with a lot of questions. He is not only difficult to get a hold of, he is also very brisk and brushes off my questions. My treatment is monthly medication and progesterone tests however, when I call his office to let them know that I need a new prescription and schedule a test I don't ever get a call back. Its up to me to get a hold of the pharmacy or lab to seei if they were called in. I was supposed to do a HSG test, but he never called in my medication and he never scheduled my HSG. I now have to wait till my next cycle to start trying again.
I have been to a more rude and uncaring doctor. I had a problem a year ago that could have easily been fixed but he shrugged his shoulders and sent me on my way. A year later I visit a new doctor and within a day find the problem. He didn't take time to ask questions or order the proper tests. Now I have suffered for a year for no reason. I do not recommend Dr. Pead. He treated me like I was a basket case. Don't waste your time!!
Having trouble getting pregnant and asked for Clomid. I had another doctor suggest that I do this. He said I would have to go to a specialist to get this prescribed because he's a regular gynecologist an did not do that. I then found out that he had put my sister in law on this very medication!! Don't wait for him to read your results and call you in a timely manner. It won't happen! You have to keep badgering his office to have him return phone calls.
