Ratings for Dr. Oliver C. James
I've been going here for over 2 years. I get anxiety every time I have to go. The staff are rude and not just front desk, nurses, back desk for checking out and the PAs, you are treated like a drug addict off the street. I made a huge mistake and I completely own up to it, somehow I threw my scripts away. I did not expect them to replace them but I called to ask what can I do til Oct 23, thinking they could at least help me figure out how to space out what I did have left, no instead the nurse said oh well at least you caught it early and hope you find them. I have heart issues and I was scared, I ended up having to go to my mental health provider and she prescribed clonidine to help with the withdrawal symptoms. I was suffering over a week and this office couldn't have called that in? Its not a narcotic so what's the big deal. The deal is they do not care about their patients. All they want to do is push injections, when I asked about sedation they told me oh you don't need that it only hurts for a minute, um no, obviously they've never had one. Since this incident w my scripts I've started researching other pain mgmt doctors, I just do not need to put up w this behavior. I found one in Louisville and spoke to them for over a half hour, they are getting me in this week or next depending how long the referral paperwork takes. So tomorrow morning I will be calling this office to say I'm not coming back. All I ask for is kindness and compassion and actually try to help me have a better quality of life. Stay far away from this place.
the front office staff may be a little rude, but am sure that they have to screen a lot of drug seekers. Dr James and his PA are very knowledgeable his PA has better bedside manner than Dr James and will spend more time listening to you and explaining procedures. His nurses are very prompt returning phone calls regarding questions about medications or symptoms from medications.
