Ratings for Dr. Richard L. Noren
Do not go to this HACK! He's a jerk, types during whole visit then injects your back incorrectly and tortures you! And as a patient you don't know that what he's doing is wrong and will damage your back worse for life! Then he gave me an epidural injection in my neck WITHOUT an X-ray to guide him so he caused a cerebrospinal fluid leak!!!! Then he refused to see me after, refused me any pain medication and refused my phone calls! By the time I made it to the ER that night it was too late, and I Annie PERMANENTLY DISABLED!!!!! STAY AWAY FROM THIS SMUG, INCOMPETENT JERK!!!
I am writing to vent our dissatisfaction with Doctor Richard Noren and his staff. I was a new patient of Dr. Noren's and had a appointment. He examined me and ordered a MRI and X-ray, plus, pain medication. Unfortunately, the pain medicine did nothing for my pain. I called Doctor Noren's office on Monday and spoke with his assistant Mindy asking to talk to the doctor. She advised me he was out of the office until Wednesday. I explained my painful situation to her and she became aggressive and rude towards me. I told her I just wanted to know from the doctor if I could take more of my medicine or perhaps ibrprofen for my pain. She repeatedly stated the doctor is out of the office till Wednesday. I called back on Tuesday still in pain and AGAIN requested to speak with the doctor or to page him and have him call me. Subsequently, I called my primary doctor who talked to me and advised me on my correct medicine intake.
It took every bit of strength I has not to knock him out. My wife has been suffering for about 10 years with fibromyalgia as well as migraine headaches and a herniated disc in her back! He told her word for word "you do not have pain, it's all in your head" the guy is a total loser an I wouldn't care if he was the Only Doctor left I would not recommend him for anything! He should just retire if he's too afraid to deal with anything but easy cases.
didn't actively or interactively listen; didn't make eye contact, diagnostic tests lasted a matter of seconds; cut me off as i was trying to provide relevant information, shrugged shoulders several times; showed no care, concern or empathy for a painful condition. not recommeded whatsoever.
This was the most arrogant man I have ever met. Treated me like I was a drug seeking loser. Wouldn't listen to a word I had to say, wouldn't review my records, briefly skimmed my medications and stated there was nothing he could do for me and abruptly left the room. He has the bedside manner of a shark looking for its next meal. This guy is a waste of a medical license. Find another doc. You don't need this jerk. If he bills me for the 5 minutes he spent with me, I will sue!
This so called doctor is the worst. Everytime I saw him he was typing in his laptop the whole time. I know he wasn'ttyping anything about me because we hardly ever spoke at our appointments. I would try to explain what was going on with my back and he would just continue to keep typing and say nothing at all. If he did talk and ask a question he would start typing before you finished and keep typing for the rest of our appointment. I am going to give this review on every site I find on this person. I'mnt going to call him a doctor.
