Ratings for Dr. Thomas V. Caughlan
Dr. Caughlan has been my primary care physician for over ten years. He has effectively maintained my high blood pressure treatment along with my cholesterol and GERD. When I have needed a referral to a specialist, he has done so promptly and without reservation. He is totally professional and has his patients best interest at hears.
I herniated 2 discs in my neck. Instead of sending me right to a neuro-surgon. He did the MRI, which he knew nothing about. Then he gave me Tyenol 3 for pain. I about died from his arrogance, and miscare.I have never been in so much pain. After finally getting to the surgon, who immediately gave me perocet,and condemed Dr. Caughland for not sending me immediately to him, and for giving me asprin for pain. I was in surgury in 2 days, because I was loosing all feeling down my arm and hand. He was totally incompetent.
i was undertreated for pain because I went through alcohol treatment 20 years ago and I saw a psychiatrist 20 years ago, blames all pain on psychological problems. Falsification of my medical records, failure to help or direct me to somene who would help, misdiagnoseded me,yells at me, makes unsubstantiated claims about me,makes no attempt to get to know his patients,know five people who think he is the worst doctor in town, including a nurse from the local hospital who says he is extremely lazy, does not read patients charts,has made an effort to sabotage my ability to get help elsewhere. I have one kidney, he ignored my high blood pressure for eight years, writes in my medical record that i have a heart murmer, does not tell me, prescribes celebrex knowing this about me,
