I was seen by this doctor in the ER. I was diagnosed with Influenza B and returned after getting worse. This doctor was on duty. I have been in the medical field for 31 years and knew something was wrong. He told me nothing was wrong, that my labs were fine, etc. One of the test was an arterial blood gas. I knew that the oxygen level was low and questioned him. He proceeded to tell me it was due to my age which I knew was not true. He then asked if I wanted him to go ahead and admit me to the hospital. Obviously I'm not going to argue with the physician so I went home. I felt he dismissed my concerns and did not address them properly. I later found out after getting a copy of my lab work that the arterial blood gas values were not good and it showed respiratory compromise as well as my oxygen being low. Those lab results combined with the rest of my symptoms should have warranted me being admitted to the hospital. I left that ER and in less than 48 hours I returned to a different hospital and was diagnosed with pneumonia and was told I needed to be admitted to the hospital. All this doctor did was spend time telling me about when he had the flu and why he gets a flu shot and continuously dismissed anything I had to say. Luckily I knew better and went and had a second opinion. Unfortunately not all patients have the background that I do or someone that can be an advocate for them. This physician has very poor patient care end I would not recommend being treated by him. When you go to an emergency room whoever is on call as far as the doctor goes is who you will usually see however there is always more than one person there that can treat you. If you're not comfortable with who is seeing you and what they are telling you definitely get a second opinion
