Ratings for Dr. Scott Styles
If you have no real urgency for help or support needed for your child, you may find Dr. Styles repetitive questions and enlightening thoughts rather entertaining however if your child and family are in need of actual medical support, Dr. Styles is probably not the doctor for your family. After waiting almost a year to see him (if this is typical, I understand we all need/want money but perhaps just not taking on any more patients would be a better approach - if for nothing else, the child who needs help) we are now onto our 3rd apt, all of which were 1-2 hours and we are still in the "intake/gathering history" part of the process. Which I could potentially understand if the child has been struggling with multiple symptoms and has not yet seen a pediatrician in the past however that's not the case with us. My child has already been diagnosed with Autism, Dyspraxia, and an intellectual disability by very reputable pediatricians, with supporting documentation and yet, I've been asked to again fill out forms that have been already been filled out at the time of diagnosis. Additionally, I absolutely agree - the behavior of listening to the parent, is somewhat challenging for Dr. Styles, though I do appreciate he listens to my child and consistently tries to engage in conversation. I explained the therapies and strategies we're working with and some things that have and haven't worked in the past and yet, he'll make those same recommendations. I just can't figure out if it's a knowledge issue or just complete lack of efficiency but overall, it is extremely unfortunate for a child in desperate need of help.
We've been working with Dr. Styles for the last several months and I find him very helpful and knowledgable as well as patient. He talks directly to my child and is sensitive to our conversations about my child infront of him. The receptionist is great and always has been helpful.
I agree with not educated. Brought up concerns of autism with him which he brushed off. Turns out my child was severky autistic. He then says you didnt bring up any concerns. Joke. He also couldnt figure out flushed face that never went away, turns out it was a food sensitivity. Only took sone searching on the web to figure that out. Simple. Cleared it up and researched for him on my own. Horrible.
Dr Styles has been a wonderful, caring, supportive Dr to both of our kids. For our son with ASD, who is challenging for sure, he is an excellent listener, empowers him to speak freely, is non-judgmental and is supportive to us as parents. He provides lots of options and listens to our concerns and preferences. He speaks with respect to our kids in a way that many professionals do not. Highly recommended! There has been staff turnover so it is hard to rate, but we have never had a problem. Appointments can be hard to get now that he is so busy but that is not a staff problem. We are always treated courteously and respectfully.
Dr.Styles did absolutely nothing for my daughter and her reflux put her on a mmedication that caused heart problems and constipation for which she needed more medication. He put my daughter on the lowest dose of ranitidine and refused to increase it. He wanted us to chew her food and then spit it into her mouth. Finally after months of begging he referred her to the feeding clinic where we saw a different pediatrician who increased her ranitidine based on her weight and sure enough her symptoms subsided aand her whole demeanor changed. Dr. Styles was unprofessional, rude and would not listen to my husband and I when we tried to tell him the med wasn't working. He was also inconsistent saying one visit that her weight was great and then two weeks later changed his tune and said she was grossly under weight. I do not recommend him at all.
My daughter was referred here a few years ago after a diagnosis of FASD. We did not know what to do or where to turn. Our family MD sent us to Dr Styles and I can't say enough good about him and his receptionist. My daughter is comfortable to go there and Dr. Styles talks to her which I like! I refer all my friends that are having a hard time dealing with the needs of their children, he listens and responds with the best possible answer.
