Ratings for Dr. Richard A. Devans
I have been with Dr. Devans for going on 6 years. He takes all the time you need and through educates you on your condition (if needed). If he puts you on medication, he tells you about them. I have had never experienced any problems with time waited, attitude or bedside manner. This is coming from someone who has several medical issues. I have a great doctor-patient relationship with Dr. Devans and would recommend him to any friend, if needed. One quality I like about Dr. Devans is he doesn't put you through tests or radiological imaging if there isn't a specific need, like some doctors subject you to radiation of the imaging not needed or to run up the medical expenses or bill. It's been a good 6 years of being a patient of Dr. Devans and I look for more years to be added to the 6.
I visited this doctor for a Thyroid problem i had ( already diagnosed by 3 other doctors ). He totally dismissed my Throid problem, even though i had test results and symptoms showing otherwise. He then told me he thought i had cancer instead ( without even waiting to see the results of tests he wanted me to get ). I found him to be very cold hearted, especially when he just blurted out the word cancer. I would never go back to him, and would advise anyone i know to stay far away from his practice.
Horrible Doctor! Had been up all night with food poisoning, throwing up with bloody diahrrea every half hour. Should have gone to the hospital but could not make it out of the house. Took a stool sample in and showed the doctor and told him I suspected food poisoning. He held the sample up and said, "Very impressive". NEVER even examined me, NEVER did any tests, NEVER did any tests on the sample I brought in. HE DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING FOR ME! Went to another doctor 3 days later and he took a stool sample and said I had e-coli food poisoning which can affect the kidneys, etc. By that time I was starting to get my strength back and the doctor said that I should have been hospitalized right away. I now have kidney problems which other doctors have said could have been from my e-coli food poisoning. This doctor spent no more than 5 minutes in the room with me, had no compassion for me whatsoever and in my book was COMPLETELY UNCARING! I wouldn't send my worst enemy to this doctor!
