Ratings for Dr. Jason Profetto
Very nice Dr. Glad Jane is gone. Only thing is he needs to take a course on how not to talk down to people with mental illness. Most times when I go in he does not belive a word I say. You are an excellent Dr but please educate yourself about mental illness 60% of people suffer with these disease.
While it may have taken some time for the receptionist staff to adjust to Dr. Profetto's style, the overall experience has been nothing short of fantastic. I am constantly telling my friends about how great of a doctor he is, and that if he was still accepting new patients, that he would be my first pick. I like how he is a teaching doctor, and have watched him groom students to follow his attention to detail in terms of listening to the patient. As an older patient seeing a younger doctor, he does not make me feel old! (That is a huge bonus!!)
I was missdiagnosed and the medication I was given was making me worse. The doctor told me I just needed purpose and to go back to work. I was working before I started the medication I didn't just need purpose. I think he doesn't take mental health seriously. Every time I went in I was seen by a different student doctor who would then discuss it with him and come back and tell me what the Dr said. No one can be diagnosed properly if they are seen by a different person every time not to mention a student. I realised this was not effective and asked to only see Dr Profetto. That is when I was told I just needed purpose. No I was actually miss diagnosed. I got a new doctor and was properly diagnosed. I don't know if he is any good at diagnosing non mental issues. If he is and you like him I would suggest just being reffered to a psychiatrist or specialist and not waste your time on mental health issues with him. I don't know if he personally doesn't believe in mental illness or if he is just not very good at that aspect. Either way he should not be attempting to help people with mental issues. Some family doctors don't feel comfortable dealing with it and always refer their patients to a specialist. Which he should be doing. It's too bad I had such a bad experience as the wait times where low and the other staff was great. I was given no choice but to find a new doctor I was struggling and he basically made it worse then refused to help.
