Ratings for Dr. Catherine C. Coleman
Never even got to see the doctor,she had her assistant do the entire examine,she recommended tests my family Doctor does.Why repeat same tests you just had done within a year.Infact what I went for they did nothing for that at all ,they was not even helpeful.When my insurance is paying for a Doctor and I go see a Doctor I expect to see a Doctor not her nurse practionter.Just total waste of money,and not to mention my appointment was at 9;00 and I didnt get into to see them until 2;30.My time is just as valuable as anyone;s in that doctors office also.Dr. Coleman didnt even care enough to come in and speak with me she doesnt deserve anyone's business.I will not return to her for any future visit's.Anyone that calls there self a Doctor and does not meet the patient does not deserve patients period.
Dr. Coleman is very cold. When I explained to her my periods were coming early she told me I was incorrectly taking my birth control. I told her I'd been on the pill for years, and knew how to take it, but this particular brand was causing me trouble, and sickness. Her staff is kind, helpful and amazing all around. They are usually the ones who call in my prescriptions and they are the ones who called the pharmacy to tell them to change my brand. When I inquired as to a different type of birth control Dr. Coleman told me I could only take "the ring or the pill" I asked about two other types, and asked why she refused to even discuss them and she only repeated "the ring or the pill." No reasons given. She's also never on time. Always prepare to wait for your appointment. Once you're in, it's over in minutes. She's very crass, and I don't care for her bedside manner or lack of explanations. I am currently in search of another doctor. 3 routine visits with her is enough.
Dr. Coleman was on call when I went to the ER w/a 8cm ovarian cyst- the worst pain of my life! Despite knowing this, she refused to come in to look at me and wanted me to wait overnight until she felt like coming in, in the morning. I couldn't stand the pain, so I insisted to the ER Dr. that she transfer me to Pittsburgh, where they immediately (4 am) did surgery because they were so worried about the effects of the cyst, and the risk that it posed to my unborn child. Knowing the same set of facts, Dr. Coleman could not be bothered to come in or act with any urgency (like sending me to Pittsburgh earlier). If it was up to her, I might have lost my ovary and my baby. The pain was so bad that I was bowled over in pain even with 3 doses of morphine. So I don't know what Dr. C is like in person, but she doesn't seem like a terribly dedicated or knowledgeable physician.
