Ratings for Dr. Richard M. Trosch
I saw Dr. Trosch ove a period of about 6-7 years. I would still be with him, had I not moved to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I found him to be a terrific doctor, nice person, very caring, etc. Never found him to be arrogant during my time with him. Saw him 4 x a year for 6-7 years. The best part was, he helped me manage my cervical dystonia, which made me feel like part of the human race again.
This doctor lacks knowledge about movement disorders. He misdiagnosed the patient's condition, and was too impatient to listen to any pertinent background information on the patient's condition so as to be properly informed. He was verbally abusive and confrontational before the patient, exhibiting poor manners, as well as poor bedside manner. This doctor's arrogance and rudeness caused the visit to be unsuccessful, and created a delay in getting the patient to a capable, knowledgeable and helpful professional. Unfortunately, this experience was not a positive one, and therefore, it is not possible to recommend this doctor to anyone.
My husband has seen Trosch for over ten years: after seeing two other neurologist that did not ease the symptoms, Trosch changed his meds, discussed DBS, and set us on the right path. All changes were positive and we were glad we made the switch. His demeanor may not be warm and fuzzy, but he gets the job done, and does it well. I agree that some of the earlier staff showed a lack of organization and professionalism, but his current group is very competent. The main nurse we call (Cindy?) is THE BEST!
I liked Dr Trosch. He was very helpful, he answered all of my questions and was always on time. He was funny and engaging. I had to stop seeing him when I lost my insurance, and then he sent me over to Quest Research to be a 'guinea pig' for the same treatment I was getting, for free at Quest. I also did a commercial for Channel 7's Medical Minute for him and Quest. His method of treatment was very good and it fixed the problem, which he told me what to expect. He was very thorough with everything. His sense of humor was different, that is what others might be calling arrogance, which I did not see in him. His staff was not always courteous and did not always know what was going on. One time, they even gave my number to someone who called saying they found my wallet, but this was before the HIPPA ruling, and that doesn't discount the doctors treatment.
Dr. Trosch was highly recommended by a friend. He has a great staff. They are polite and professional. However my opinion of Dr.Trosch is not so highly rated. He is arrogant and demeaning. Dismisses the patients concerns about their subjective and objective signs and symptoms. I will not recommend him to my family and friends.
I have been seeing Dr Trosch for over 10 years. My first vist he spent alot of time evaluating and answering my questions. He is competent and compassionate and hardly ever seems to be in a hurry. He still takes time to answer questions and does a through neuro exam with every visit.
Had many very good recommendations about Dr Trosch's abilities from a few friends who had seem him in the past few years. I didn't wonder why no one said a word about his arrogant personality. The examination was hardly disguised as limited and brief. He seemed to have his mind made up regarding diagnosis & treatment without taking a complete history. He had a non-verbal knack of making it very clear you were wasting his time with your taking away his time from more important things to do. Then it was more more clear if you dared asked a question that indicated you had some of the illness.The worst thing a doctor can do to any patient is take away their hope, not of some magic pill, but of some possibility that there exists 'something' for them that even has a minimal chance for even minimal alleviation of those symptoms that led one to make an appointment. He may have done well for some of his patients, but consistency is apparently not one of his fortes, at least on the day of my appointment.
