Dr. Betts was condescending to my previous doctor and scoffed at everything I told him about my condition. His attitude towards me was offensive. I have real pain due to several factors and he seemed to not believe me. I don't appreciate nor do I deserve such terrible bedside manner.
Dr Betts is a poor excuse for a "doctor". He didn't address my needs at all. He didn't listen to me. I went there for Chronic pain due to painful tumors, have surgery date set and he diagnosed me with Bi-Polar disorder??? Wtf?? I've never been more insulted and embarrassed by a doctor in my life!!! I left my visit before it was over - jumped off the table and said "you are offensive and rude!" He has NO idea about anything!!! He told me "hey I'm not an OB" However apparently he thinks he a Psychiatrist telling me at least 5 times I was Bi-Polar. He asked me why I take the med Cymbalta and I told him for panic and anxiety disorder - his reply was "that's not why you take it". He's a male chauvinist PIG! An awful human being and he should have his license revoked!
I saw this "DR" for a month. He prescribed me 2 different psychotropic medications...I am bi-polar and when I stated my concerns he did not address them. All he wanted to do is give me a cortisone shot. so i got one. the pain in my neck was increased by 10 fold. i also have lower back pain in which he would not address at all. After a month of visits with no relief and more pain than i began with he stated that he could not help me. He stated that he did not know what to do for me. No suggestions. when i suggested Physical Therapy he grudingly referred me. I asked him for pain medication until i could get into PT. he stated he did not do that sort of thing. This Doctor was inpatient and would not answer any of my questions. He does not deal with pain he focuses on the only thing he can legal do which is cortisone shots!!!! how frustrating to find out that he would have to refer me to a pain spec, because "He did not do that sort of thing" So why did I get referred to him.
