Ratings for Dr. Stephen A. Center
I've had a great experience with Dr. Center's office! Dr. Center is very thorough in his explanations. I appreciate the follow up emails where everything that was discussed in the office is written out. The fees are not cheap but have all been made known to me up front. I've never felt any pressure to do any particular procedure or take any particular "pill". All of the information is given up front and I'm allowed to make an informed decision myself. Very, very happy I went here!
As the other raters stated Dr. Center doesn't seem to be listening. During my 1st appt. he told me of his family stories -not what I wanted to pay for. He talked so much about his family that the report he was typing and later sent me, contained another patients info. I have been under his treatment for over 8 months and still have the same hormonal issue I started with. He has changed my perscriptions 5 times. One perscription took his office staff 1 month to call into my pharmacy. After several attempts via email to get things straightened out, he has cut off all email and phone communication with me and insists that I make another appt, at a cost of over $300. During the appts, he asks the same questions he asked you during the last visit and types it on his computer. In my case, the answers are the same as the last visit since there has been no improvement, so his motives don't seem to lean towards helping me with my symptoms.
Constantly trying to sell other products/services not covered by insurance. I came in with a very specific problem and he did not even do an exam of the affected area. I feel he did not listen or respond to the issues I mentioned. I did not want to pay for other services, I wanted to address my problem at hand. Left feeling I was no closer to finding a solution to my problem. Very disappointed!
Dr. Center has been the best doctor I've had in over 30 years. I have recommended him to many friends. A very modern doctor who keeps up on the latest advances in medicine. Listens closely and goes out of his way to go the extra mile for his patients.
Dr. Center is a Western medicine practioner who also dispenses homeopathic medicine. He is an expert in anti-aging medicine and is very aggressive in encouraging his patients to go outside of their insurance coverage to visit him on Wednesdays, which he sets aside for special consultations. I went to a couple of them and got his comprehensive health evaluation, which was merely a restatement of my health issues and his thoughts on what might be causing them. In order for me to obtain actual treatment for the issues, however, I was advised to continue to make the Wednesday appointments to the detriment of my pocketbook. His office staff is wonderful, though. I'm switching doctors after having been with him for many years because he seems less interested in finding out what's causing my problems than in prescribing homeopathic medication out of his office that I'm sure he makes a profit on. He also speaks quickly and doesn't listen well. In the long run, I diagnosed myself.
