Ratings for Dr. Thomas J. High
Disgusting excuse for a doctor. Horrible experience which included him accusing me of being a drug addict (I don't even drink). The single worst doctor I have ever met in my life but thankfully I never have to see him again. The good reviews here must be plants.
Dr High and his staff (Carrie) are terrific. With his new office he is very accessible and easy to discuss my medical questions and needs. I appreciate that he provides an opinion when asked a question and will spend the time to talk with me. First time a long time that I don't feel rushed at my doctor's office.
Dr High now has his OWN office and the issues listed below do not exist there. He is in the same building as before but on the second floor. His new office runs MUCH better than Perimeter North did without all of the shuck and jive things that were annoying. The folks at Perimeter North will not tell you where he is now and will try yo get you to see another one of their Doctors. I found his new practice through Google.
A Horrible Experience, Was knowledgable yes,sadly at the same time insulted me repeatly from my hobbies to lifestyle and my age.. over and over. when I made a face.. zoom...back to medical talk.It was like a bad snl skit.What makes me angry the most is why said nothing. I was in pain and nervous . Had I gotten mad I would have probably hurt him and trust me this old troll isn't worth it. run don't walk from this DR
Dr. High is good if you can get to him... With that said you have to suffer a bit in order to reach your overall goal. 1 is having to sit with people who really look like they came off the street 2 staff that has a serious attitude 3. catching Dr. High on the 2 days he works a week. I do not recommend this DR
I was pleased with Dr High until recently when I suffered from back pain and needed an MRI. At first he suggested xrays but I said I had already had them and nothing showed up. I went for my MRI and was refered by Dr High to a specialist however, the specialist needed new xray in order for my insurrance to cover his services. I called Dr High s office numerous times and spoke to his assistant who never called back. When I got a hold of her she said that Dr High would get around to sending an xray request when he had time because he felt I had refused this service at an earlier time. It took 3 weeks to get it through. By that time I had to resechudle my appointment with the specialist because of the delay and was pushed back another month. I finally got my xrays done and waited for Dr high s call with the results. It has been 2 weeks and I sill havnt heard from him. I have gotten a copy of the report myself from the hospital and now have to wait until next month to see the specialist.
after waiting three hours to see him. He quipped that most people live to be 85 and inferred I was imagining my symptoms - then after doing an EKG, he told me to walk across the street to the emergency room with the printouts - he didn't call to say I was coming - I was admitted and received $30,000 worth of diagnostic tests only to find out that I had a hyperthyroid condition. After I found out that the condition could cause loss of bone, I called him to ask for a prescription for a bone density test, which he refused to write if I didn't come in for a physical, even though he received all the test results from the hospital and I had been in the office the week before.
