Ratings for Dr. Stuart Egier
Very dismissive. Told him for years that there was something wrong but he only prescribed pills to mask the symptoms. Eventually found out I have rheumatoid arthritis but it's super hard to control after being unmedicated for literally years. I was made to feel like a hypochondriac.
I find him to be totally rude. I have seen him a couple of times. I did not know my previous Dr. had not sent my records when I showed up for a physical, and was told off about that. So that physical was 5 minutes, he did nothing. Second appointment, I was discussing what problems I had, and he told me this was a 6 minute appointment, to go book a 30 minute consultation appointment with his staff. I had no idea that they would book a 6 minute appointment and that he would be agitated, On the way out he said to me, "This is not a Psychiatrists office". I guess I talked a little too much for his liking in the 6 minutes. . As I said I did not tell reception to book a 6 minute appointment. Who ever has a 6 minute appointment? This is news to me. If this is any indication of what he is really like then I am glad I said nothing, and walked out, I will not sink to that level and I will not be going back. I am not a dog, and expect to be treated with the same respect that I show to him. Doctors are not God, and remember they get paid, and we are paying through our taxes, so I refuse to be treated his punching bag on his time while he is getting paid to do his job. Lighten up, or retire. There rerally is no reason what so ever to have a Doctor to be insulting in any way, and to the person with family who seems to be advocating for him. Get over yourself, do you think you and your family are any better than anyone else? You think slamming a door in someones face, and being rude is appropriate?
I agree with the bad reviews. Saw him 6 times and decided I didn't have to deal with his crappy attitude. He doesn't even say hello, just storms into the room you've been waiting in for 30 min and asks what's wrong, and gets short if you don't explain things quickly and in medical terms. Very little explanation and certainly no time for questions as he makes sure to make you feel really rushed. The last time I saw him, I remember him rolling his eyes and acting really impatient when I asked a question just as he was getting up to leave. Then running out of the room shouting "You'll get a call" from the hallway. Looks like he's checked out and doesn't care anymore.
Terrible service. I had booked an appointment months in advance. I received no calls to when my appointment was to be scheduled. I called ahead to find out when my appointment was, a co-worker was taking leave for weeks. My appointment to which I could not make was cancelled and a bill was sent to my house. I ended up with this physician because my previous physician decided to take long term leave. I basically cannot say anything good/useful about this man, other than what has been said below. Avoid at all costs.
When I scroll down the page and see so many 5 star reviews it makes me think...darn I wish I'd have seen that doctor. I haven't though, despite being his patient for just over 20 years. I was referred to him by my pediatrician as he "was very thorough". First off he is always running late. Expect to wait at least 1/2 an hour from your appointment time. Now I understand that in medicine there are sometimes emergencies...but I wait every single time I'm there. His bedside manner is terrible. I'm sorry there is just no other way of putting it. He is rude and condescending to an incredible extent. Don't even bother asking for a referral unless you want a list of why you don't need one. When he told me that I needed to see an eye specialist, it took his office almost a year to even get back to me with an appointment date. When they finally did it was 8 months down the road and not with the doctor I asked for and have history with. Customer service simply does not exist at his office as the nurses/secretaries or whatever are just as bad. It genuinely seems as though they all have more important things to do than deal with you. My favourite was when he gave me a hard time because the appointment I booked was not long enough for what I wanted. Funny thing is the receptionist asks what you want when you call so I just took the only appointment I was offered. In summary: 1.) terrible bedside manner 2.) appointments are distant in the future and his staff WILL NOT call to remind you no matter how far in the future the appt was booked. 3.) you will 100% be charged if you miss an appointment 4.) don't even bother asking for a referral to a specialist as you will only get one if he suggests it 5.) his communication is vague and curt 6.) he does not have the patience to hear you out 7.) he will diagnose you and prescribe drugs without fully explaining to the patient what's going on. 8.) he does not have time for questions. I really really wish that I had received a 5 star experience but alas I have NOT. In actual fact the only reason he gets a '1' is because there is no zero. After 20 years I've finally had enough and it's time to move on.
