Ratings for Dr. Kurt R. Washburn
This man should not be allowed to practice medicine. He lacks in all empathy and compassion. He’s ego is such that he refuses and resents referrals to other physicians, much less other hospital systems. His narrow minded neuro practice solely relies on one clinical expertise of migraines, although, he states having knowledge of all neurological disorders. He’s self-righteous attitude towards his patients is horrific...insinuations of pharmacological dependencies by his patients, when there is no evidence to support. I’ve heard him refer to his patients comparing them to Hollywood starlets. Recently, heard of him “withholding refills on prescription medication because of his office moving, transfer of tax ID number, and records being transferred to his new office.” He should be reported to the board of medicine, as well as insurance providers. He is a detriment to the health profession. Shame on him!
Very. Helpful, caring, takes time, knowledgeable, listen well, I have kexcellent rapport ,it it took me some tome and work to develop. He saved me from a hospitalization nwhileon weekend call, And I am very grateful for ;5 years of excellent care.
Absolutely no empathy. He doesn't seem to care if you've severe reactions to a drug he prescribed nor does he seem interested in suggesting a different drug to treat you with. Non-communicative. Not an ounce of good bedside manner. I have never disliked a doctor, but I have to say, I just don't him.
