Ratings for Dr. Joseph H. Crumbliss
The atheist here with a follow up... I asked doctor crunmbliss to refer me to a psychiatrist after he “again” forced me to go without my medication, out of what could only be pure spite. He refused to simply transfer my psych med prescription, that he had already written and sent electronically to my pharmacy that simply did not have it in stock to fill, to another pharmacy to be filled until “I came in and gave him money” after HE cancelled our scheduled appointment to go out of town. I simply needed someone to authorize the transfer, and was told it was a common occurrence and easily remedied, and my prescription should be ready to pick up at the other pharmacy by the end of the day. No one called me, no one said I needed to schedule an appointment, they simply said it wouldn’t be a problem, and it wasn’t until I went to pick up my prescription that I knew there was a problem, because they had heard nothing at all from my doctors office. That was the last straw. I’m bi-polar, he diagnosed me... yet he seemed to “get off” on screwing with me, and my mental stability, like it was a power trip for him. I suppose he showed me why I did indeed need god in my life ... to protect me from psychopathic pricks with a cross and a degree in medicine. It took ten minutes of discussion between us for him to actually understand all I needed from him was an okay to transfer an existing prescription he had ALREADY WRITTEN AND SENT. He attempted to make this my fault in every way he could think of, but he canceled my appointment, I did NOT miss it. He had already written this prescription, I didn’t need a new one. I wasn’t trying to change pharmacies, I was simply trying to find a pharmacy capable of filling my medication. I finally said, how is this my fault when the pharmacy simply has a supply problem and can’t fill my prescription? To which he says, and I’m not kidding, “WELL, how was I suppose to know that? 🤨 I said perhaps by the three phone calls I made to your office just trying to get my prescription filled BEFORE I RAN COMPLETELY OUT stated the fact! Before he started sending out prescriptions electronically he regularly wrote my prescriptions wrong forcing me to run back and forth between his office and the pharmacy wasting half my day. I genuinely despise this man, and highly recommend any other option available before settling. I took his recommendation for a psychiatrist out of what little respect I had left for him. I had an outbreak of shingles and my psychiatrist office called down to his office asking if they would prescribe me the medication to treat it, because my doctor was out of town and they flat refused to help. He is an embarrassment to those in his profession and lacks the essential ethics of those dedicated to the discipline of medicine, or even common courtesy towards fellow physician... .there. I hope ther’s a special place in hell reserved just for him.
I would have said the exact same thing as the other reviews here before I let my religious views slip and revealed them to him in a moment of weakness. He is a good Christian doctor to good Christian patients, but honest nonbeliever’s need to be Secretive., willing to lie, or simply look elsewhere for care, because If you don’t believe, he doesnt “care” IMO. I’m not sure he’s even aware of it, but ... its good advise.
Dr. Crumbliss takes the time to listen to his patients, and works to find the best solution. His staff is very friendly and helpful. The only problem is the wait time. Because he spends time with his patients, he tends to get behind. However, he works straight through lunch and into the evening hours due to his commitment to his patients.
He was an excellent doc and I would still be going ther had it not been for that snoddy little mexican women behind/under the desk. She was just flat out rude. Ans that is why I left. Good Luck Doc and get rid of that muchkin and you will really do better for yourself.
