Ratings for Dr. David Flaschner
I have been seeing Dr. Flaschner on and off for about 7 years now. The ON portion of seeing him has been excellent. He is a fantastic Doctor, and has helped with my pain management greatly. He takes his time, explains things and gives direction for his diagnosis. The OFF portion of trying to see him is bought about by his extremely unprofessional "gatekeeper" receptionist/intake coordinator. Even though I have seen him before, I am forced to get a new referral to see him. OK, I get it, so I do that. Now, apparently I fall to the bottom of some never ending wait list due to my lack of intelligence in needing another referral, and due to her control of the phone and front desk. She doesn't manage previous patients effectively. I understand waiting. I was told probably 4-5 months to get in. OK. now 4-5 months have passed and she now says she has no idea when it could happen.....unprofessional and for someone like me who has constant chronic pain, it's just plain painful.
Great doctor, on time, polite, did everything he could to help me narrow down the problem and leave with multiple possibilities to fix problem. I am an athlete and am looking for beyond optimal function and he still took the time to help me. Highly recommend.
Dr. Flaschner is thorough, considerate, and has the best interest of his patients in mind during his consultations. I have been seeing him on and off for 4 years now, and each time he treats me with respect, knowing that constant chronic pain is a tough diagnosis to justify publicly, and that living with it is no easy thing. Yes, his Receptionist is curt and very short with people, but the focus here is not the Receptionist as she does not treat the patients. Anyone who would take the time to rate his Helpfulness or Knowledge anything but a 5 star should look elsewhere for solutions to their problems.
Dr Flaschner is an absolutely excellent doctor in knowledge and bedside manner...if you can get past his extremely rude receptionist. She seems to favor the older patients. I noticed this after many appointments where I was in the waiting room, and overhearing her. She fast tracks the older patients or her favorites for appointments and makes others wait an extended amount of time.
I cannot tell you how unprofessional and rude the receptionist is at this clinic. She is completely clueless in how to treat people. I could only imagine she must be related to one of the doctors as I can not imagine any reasonable person wanting this individual greeting people who come to the clinic. Obviously, the receptionist is a reflection of how the doctors run their clinic, so I would advise people to stay clear of this clinic at all costs.
