Ratings for Dr. Jesus V. Casino
Brought my adult daughter in due to a horrible rash covering most of her torso among other concerns. At the time she had a severe cough with a fever. I asked that he do a Thyroid test as she was presenting many of the symptoms for hypothyroid. HE FLAT OUT REFUSED TO DO IT! Said it would be a waste of a test. My daughter is suffering horribly and he offered absolutely no remedy whatsoever. Referred us to a dermo. Did not even acknowledge her coughing. told me to get a OTC med. ABSOLUTELY WORTHLESS.
I suppose accidents can happen in any profession, however, I think I should share the accident Dr. Casino made with me for the sake of others considering his care. My story: I went to prompt care for a lingering dry cough. They took chest x-rays and told me my chest looked fine. When the x-rays were further examined by the radiologists they called me to make an appointment with my doctor. When I saw Dr. Casino he told me he had not seen this rare lung disease in the thousands of patients he has seen over the years. He told me I might eventually need to carry oxygen tanks on my back. He referred me to a pulmonary specialist. I went home, looked up the disease, and found that people with this disease usually live around 6 years. When I went to the pulmonary specialist I had 2 hours worth of tests before seeing the doctor. When I then saw the doctor she said, "Who sent you here? You do not have interstitial pneumonitis, you just have a little post-nasal drip. I'm going to take that diagnosis off your chart." I can forgive and forget, and I believe others who say Dr. Casino is a fine doctor for them. For my own care, I prefer a different type of doctor.
BEWARE!!!! Please be careful while answering questions asked by Dr. Casino, I was in his office for a routine physical on Feb. 18, 2013. Like every doctor that I have seen in the past, he asked me if I was a smoker. I replied with yes, he then went one to ask if I needed help quitting I replied no. That was the end of that conversation. To my surprise when my EOB arrives in the mail, i have a charge for smoking cessation. I call the clinic to find out what this charge is for and it is was for smoking counseling. I am still confused as to how that is considered counseling. Dr. Casino's office went on to tell that me the Dr. and I spoke for 3-5 minutes about this and so therefore that is considered counseling. Well I was there in the room and it was NOT 3-5 minutes, maybe 30 seconds tops. I feel that this is fraud and it is doctors like him that causes our health insurance rates to go up every year. STAY AWAY FROM HIS OFFICE!!!!
I have been seeing Dr Casino for about a year. At first I was leary and thought about switching becasue I wasn't crazy about his lack-luster bedside manner...however I went back a few times and developed a good dr/patient relationship with him. I feel he does a good job answering my questions and he listens well. He has treated my condition to my satisfaction.
Dr Cassino is a great doctor. I have seen and know many. I am an ICU RN and this Dr knows his stuff. Though he may be quiet, he listens very well and then thoughtfully gives his well informed answer. He might not actively converse when pt is describing all of their problems, that does not equate not listening, in fact just the opposite is true. Stay fair and balanced please.
I found Dr. Casino to be a fine doctor and refreshingly pragmatic. True, he's not the mushy bleeding heart but that's fine with me, as I'm not seeing him for psychological issues or empathy. I see him to treat my medical condition. He's never cut me short nor hasn't listened. Quite the opposite as I've found him to be a very active, thinking listener - not the egotist who likes to listen to himself. I've seen him for nearly a year now and he's better than many doctors I've had in my 50+ years. Regarding the other comments I saw, it might be someone doesn't take into account Dr. Casino has a different cultural background. Given what life is like in the Philippines and what 3rd world afflictions he's likely seen in his training, it may be hard for him to genuinely empathize with issues far less serious in scope. I see a man who does his job seriously when he sees you. I also think it's his call to order a blood test, not you, unless you are your own doctor.
When a store clerk or checker doesn't listen, that's one thing. When your doctor doesn't listen, that is scary. He is elsewhere when "listening", not sure where, but it doesn't matter now does it. Not rude nor arrogant, just a poor listener, which in this line of work, won't get you very far. If you are unwilling to help me, that's fine, there are many doctors to choose from. I had a pre-existing condition that my former doctor and now CMO of FHG had diagnosed. Dr. Casino has now determined, without really ever examining my injury, that the former doctor was wrong and my prescription is not needed, although a specialist has scheduled an MRI based on an exam. Keep looking.
Dr. Casino has a terrible bedside manner and lacks knowledge or experience. I can tolerate rude or insensitive Dr.'s when they know medicine, but the only examples he could offer were from lectures in Med school. He completely disregarded labs that I requested (actually flat-out refused to order bloodwork that I felt should be done as a follow up to other labs (coupled with family history) and did not show an IOTA of sympathy over several major losses our family had just experienced. I thought that I was just seeing him on an "off day" as we all have those, but after 3 visits and several similar stories from friends and family who have gone to him, we all read the same conclusion. Dr. Casino may evolve into a wonderful physician down the road. But as of 2010, he is cold, impersonal, not at all interested in a good patient/Dr. relationship and not in the slightest bit interested in having his patients involved in their health care decisions.
