Ratings for Dr. Randall A. Ammon
I highly recommend Dr. Ammon for caring about his patients and thinking beyond the immediate problem to find the source of the problem rather than a passing patch to it. I intend to stay with hem although I have moved 100 miles away. He has earned my trust by helping me understand the problems and helping me getting rid of them.
I have to echo all of the other complaints about the office staff. Need a form? You will have to drive out and pick it up in person -- they refuse to mail it. I kid you not. Need help? How dare you. Expecting a callback? Get real. Rude and dismissive. Need an appointment? They might "squeeze you in" four months from now - I kid you not. Don't know if that's them being deliberately obstinate but given my other interactions with them I don't doubt it. Or it could be Doc simply has far too many patients. Dr. Ammon seems capable and is willing to have a genuine conversation. I went to him because my GP refused to go beyond the "TSH of 4 is normal" mantra. Dr. Ammon raised (carefully) my thyroid supplement until I actually felt better and had a much more "normal" reading of 1.2. So if you can stand the wait, it may be worth it. You'll need a thick skin and may have to restrain yourself when dealing with the office though.
Dr. Ammon is great when you eventually get to see him. His office staff, however, is the poorest I have experienced in any professional office. They are curt, rude, and altogether unfriendly. Scheduling an appointment is an ordeal. Great Doctor / lousey office
The staff is horrific and although I like Dr. Ammon very much, I've changed to another doctor because his staff is so rude. I've seen him for three years and have never been treated with anything but contempt by his awful staff. I really dislike them.
I had a weird pituitary tumor I had seen 2 other doctors about with very frustrating results - no information, condescension, keeping me waiting. Dr. Ammon treated me respectfully, and like an intelligent and responsible adult. Iappreciated that he always took my blood pressure, temp, and checked my weight himself, every time I saw him.
