Ratings for Dr. Lois Bresaw
Grossly imcompetent misdiagnosed me. If a specialist like her cannot tell you have a severe diverticulitis about to explode on your large intestine, and instead tells you it's just a ovarian cyst, RUN LIKE HELL!!!!!!!! I ALMOST DIED BECAUSE OF HER!!!! THANK GOD FOR TY CHUN, M.D.
This Doctor is A+ for me all the way. My wait was 5 minutes at the most. The nurse was very nice and noted everyone of my questions. I explained to Dr.Bresaw about my current financial issues and she gave me plenty of advice and even a way of getting my medications for a low price. I was not made to feel embarased at any point. The whole visit was about 25-30 mins which was perfect for my schedule. I highly reccomend her!
Business manager failed to inform me of office payment policy regarding balances and surgery. She called me at home on a Sunday before my Wednesday surgery to demand full payment on an existing bill. When I was unable to produce the money as demanded, Dr Bresaw called me and cancelled my hysterectomy. She also informed other local doctors that I did not pay my bills, even though I had a payment arrangement that was previously approved. Her actions prevented me from accessing medical care locally. I was humiliated and felt betrayed. I rated her staff poorly due to the actions of the business manager. Dr. Bresaw lacked compassion and understanding when speaking to me regarding the situation. Had I been appropriately informed of office policy I would have payed my bill in advance of my surgery. I believe telling other doctors that I failed to pay was inappropriate and unprofessional.
1 day prior to scheduled surgery Bresaws office demanded I come in for an ultrasound . A couple hours after I returned home Bresaw called me saying I was all better there would be no surgery told me I had to call harrison hospital & cancel my own surgery. Bresaw never returned my calls or followed up my care after that day though I remained very ill. It's called patient dumping yes it is a fact she did it to me
I had gone it to see Dr. Bresaw for an ovarian cyst on 11/11/09. After a very brief exam, Dr. Bresaw told me that I did not have ovarian cyst. On 11/15/09 my ovarian cyst ruptured and put me in the hospital on 11/16/09. I was also supposed to receive a call with test results by Monday 11/16/09 and I had to call them on 11/17/09 to get the results myself, which came back positive.
Her nurse, Georgia, was EXTREMELY nice, but the rest of the staff was rude and cold. I did not recieve the type of help that I went in for, and to this day, even though I was told to have surgery, she has not given me any information nor any scheduling help to have this procedure done. They were very quick to call about any payments due, however, which is a clear indication to me that my money is far more important than my health. Since she was paid ON TIME, there was no need for her to fret. I have found a new doctor.
