Ratings for Dr. CAROLYN A. O'Connor
I have not major complaints agains Dr O'Connor and her nurses, other than punctuality...prepare to spend 30-60 minutes waiting for your 20 minute appointment. My major complaint is with the office staff who amazingly seem to mess up every single appointment scheduling/insurance billing/referrals to specialists. And if you want a copy of your records for anything such as Aflac or referral to another doctor, be prepared to wait 2-4 weeks and pay about $15 for the privilege of them doing their job. If Dr O'Connor left that practice, I would see her for the rest of my life....but because she isn't, there is no way in h*ll (they won't let me say the real word on this website) I'm going back there! You've been warned.
I have been a patrient of Dr. O'Conner for a few years now. I find her to be engaging and thoughtfull. She does not hesitate to cal me on my crap and call a spade a spade. I am working on High blood pressure and weight and I have had so many doctors who will tell me what they think I want to hear and she always tells me the way it is. This is helpoing mew and I have already lost over 30 pounds! She is quickly becoming doctor to my whole family. My wife and brother both use her and are happy with the work she does.
I always spent an hour in the waiting area, and hour or more in the room, she would run in I would tell her the meds were not working, but making things worse. She would only look at ONE of my symtoms, not the list as a whole, nor would she even acknowledge that there were other sypmtoms. She would be there for 5 min tops, run out, and then a nurse would come in with yet another prescription for an antidepressant that I did not need. Turns out (now that I have no insurance and no way to pay) that I have HASHIMOTOS THYROIDITIS. I missed out on most of my sons life due to extreme fatigue along with many other problems due to this. If she would have listened to her patient and syptoms as a whole maybe she would have been able to figure this out with one single blood test. Since the symtoms are identical to a regular thyroid problem, maybe if she would have taken the time she could have helped me. Now I cant afford the help I need, and knowing that it was such a simple thing makes me angry
