Ratings for Dr. James R. Biddle
Dr. Biddle is a fantastic Physician! I've been a patient of Dr. Biddle, on-and-off, for six years. Whenever I get into trouble, I see Dr. Biddle to help me get unstuck. He's helped me with issues related to Fatigue, Heavy Metal Testing, Nutrient Status, Infections, Intravenous (IV) Vitamin Therapy, and more. After reading some of the negative comments in two other reviews, I urge people to visit Dr. Biddle's office, talk to his staff (and Dr, Biddle, if he's available for a few minutes), and ask for some patient referrals. I hope that anyone looking for help not be dissuaded, due to some minority opinions. Therefore, I would offer the following: As a patient, I appreciate the fact that Dr. Biddle runs on-time. I've never had to wait. Ever. But, in order for that to happen, the visits must conclude on time. If I need more time, I book a longer appointment. I don't see that as unfair or unreasonable. I've waited more than an hour to see my "Insurance Doctor," only to get frustrated by his lack of training or ability to deliver anything but the "Standard of Care" -- which, for chronic conditions, is often inappropriate and/or ineffective. Regarding lab testing, I'll admit, it can be expensive. And, in some cases, the tests may not reveal anything new or helpful. But, that's just how it goes. Years ago, I heard the saying: "Test, don't guess." I'm still a firm believer in that maxim, as the alternative is to waste valuable time and money with no clear idea in which direction one should advance. I can't stress this point enough. Some of the other claims state personal opinions, not facts. Given the tone, it seems the reviewer was upset. So, such comments are not unexpected. However, the remarks are still opinions and should be weighed accordingly. Finally, as previously noted, Dr. Biddle has been (and, continues to be) a huge help to me.
He is the MOST arrogant doctor I have ever met. Treated me in a very condescending manner. Tried to get me several times to order expensive allergy testing. Actually started an argument with me, insisting I remember when he said something to me, even though he had the chart in front of him. I never went back.
There's something about when I doctor beliefs take precedence over the patient's presenting issues. He must be good because he certainly is arrogant.
Fantastic doctor! Excellent knowledge in many, many areas, especially chronic illnesses. Also is extremely knowledgable of treatments that WORK, that will not usually include prescription medications, but may only if necessary. My son has now been HEALED of ADHD, Asperger's syndrome, AND EPILEPSY due to Dr. Biddle's treatment plans and diligence on our part, in about 1 years time! As a parent, that is worth more than the world....to have your healthy and happy child back. Worth every, single penny I have spent at his office. The office staff is superb, friendly, organized and prompt! Dr. Biddle always sees his patients within 5-10 min. of your appt. time. His RN's are first class!
Dr. Biddle is an MD who practices holistic medicine. He was able to reverse my osteoporosis without using pharmaceuticals. He is extremely knowledgeable about a lot of things and uses conventional medicine when necessary. I travel two hours to see him and I will continue to do so for his knowledge, understanding and treatment are outstanding.
