Ratings for Dr. Richard L. Kornberg
Chose this doctor for low fee given on phone. After procedure they asked me for twice as much as I was quoted. Bait and switch. Doctor also had no knowledge of my ailment, and prescribed anti-biotics, which l had explained had already failed.
He was rude, showed no concern for me, and acted like an indignant teenager. When a person has lived with a disease for years they accumulate knowledge about it and standard treatments. My affliction is severe eczema covering some 50% of my body. Every dermatologist I’ve been to in my 60 years on this planet has treated me with an injection of cortisone. He gave me ointment. (I can only compare this to putting a bandage on a broken arm.) In fact, I know that some ointments are not to be used on the face – some are only to be used on the torso (arms, legs) where the skin is “thicker”. I asked him about this particular ointment and he didn’t even give me the courtesy of an answer. (I looked it up on the Internet and found out that what he gave me was NOT to be used on the face.) This borders on negligence! I wrote to CMS (San Diego County Medical Services) about his unprofessional behavior and only pray that I can see another dermatologist since my eczema is still very, very bad.
Possibly the worst Dr. in the world! I went here for a checkup as I had not been to a dermatologist in a few years. The Dr. spent no more than 7 mintues with me and told me I was fine. He didn't examine me, didn't look at any of my moles, didn't take any of my concerns seriously (like, for example, how skin cancer runs in my family). To be honest, I'm not even sure if this man is a Dr! When I asked him how much it would be if I wanted to get some of my skin tags/moles removed, he said he didn't know and changed the subject - huh? When I asked him if I should remove my clothes so he could examine me, he said "no, I can pretty much see everything." Seriously, I would not put my health in this man's hands.
DO NOT GO TO THIS MAN. HE WELL NOT HELP YOU! NOT FIT TO BE A DOCTOR BECUASE HE DOES NOT LISTEN OR IS OPEN MINDED! The worst Doctor in the world! Did not listen to me as a patient. I had a black rash which healed topicalLY and gave me cortisone. 4 months later still had the same black rash that grew till my upper leg. I told him took Amoxdicline antibodics and felt bitting with sores. Had white sores and told him it was spreading. Refused to take biospy like the 1st time and 2nd. Than aruged with me that nothing was wrong. My black rash turned out to be possibly (STAF) drug-resistant bacteria that could only be cured in a hospital. Also I had a parasite in my one of my sores. I had to spend 5 days and 4 night in hospital just because he was not willing to listen or even respect me enough to take a biopsy. Don't gamble your life with this doctor.
