Ratings for Dr. Francis Desmond Hussey
I haven't even seen the Dr yet. I went in to sign release forms. I walked in the office and the staff treated me like I was a criminal. Very RUDE! The first question was what insurance do you have? Red flag right there. I had a question on the release form and you'd think I was ruining her day. So I will not be a patient there EVER, first impressions you know?, When you walk in the door there's a wall right there, ummm interesting. Anyway, horrible, angry seeming staff, like they hate their jobs and I seriously felt, like I said before, like a criminal. It was awful. I'll never walk back in that office again. It's hard enough to find good Drs in this town but this was ridiculous. Maybe the Drs very nice but he needs to know about how rude and unhappy and how they come across to patients.
Staff rude & unprofesssional, nurse got angry when I asked to have my name. Initials put on urine specimen before testing. I was rushed thru the office after waiting 45 minutes. Not a good feeling. Office incredibly rude, incaring, & unprofessional. I was very surprised at this treatment.
Dr. Hussey has been treating me for over 3 years. He is very knowledgable in his field, always takes as long as I need to discuss issues. He has been helpful in lowering or changing medication as needed. He is a great doctor and very friendly! I have recommended him to many people.
This "Doctor" is apparently operating a pill mill. He will see upwards of 80 - 100 patients on his clinic days. He spends very little time with patients. The time I spent in the waiting room, I would see him go from one room to the next spending little more than 1 to 4 minutes in the room. I don't see how any level of quality patient care could possibly be taking place. I would imagine most of the good reviews are there because he continues to prescribe high dose drugs to people who need them for pain relief. The problem then lies in the fact these people unknowingly become extremely addicted and dependent on these drugs. Then the body begins to tolerate these drugs and then people continuously need more to maintain their pain relief (or high). I would not recommend this doctor for pain management. He is a very brilliant doctor. However, he uses his high intellect to take advantage of people in order to make a lot of money in a deceptive manner.
I was sent to a Dr. Hussey and I assume this one, several years ago by two other worthless mds who did nothing but drain my auto ins. personal I jury money. I needed a cortisone shot for Tronchanteric bursitis caused by one older injury and a more recent car injury. Chairside manner of a psychopath. I was in hobbling pain. His exact snap at me before even hearing through my symptoms was 'THERE'S NOTHING I CAN DO FOR YOU!' Told me to go to a pain clinic. Nasty man. I suffered now a few more years until an RN with my exact problem referred me to Dr. PARENT here in Naples. ...my appt. is July 2 '15. I will hopefully have a different outcome with him.
