Ratings for Dr. James A. Stoever
My first visit with Dr. Stoever was a very pleasant experience. I found him to be a very attentive, caring and patient physician. He made a real effort to give me good information and suggest the best course of action to be taken. Personally, I like him very much and feel he is a "keeper". The staff was very cheerful and outgoing. The lab tech took blood without leaving a mark (very unusual in my experience).
My husband didn't see this Doctor but our story with him and his staff is absolutely horrific. My husband works for Gulfstream and when myself and primary doctor tried to make an "override" appointment with the office, they said "Dr. Stoever doesn't accept those with Gulfstream insurance due to a feud he had with their CoreSource insurance and not being considered in-network". They also said that "99.9% of the time he denies patients who come to him from Gulfstream". This doctor should feel absolutely awful about treating individuals this way, specifically those with CoreSource insurance. I'm glad that I found out sooner or later the true attitude that this "doctor" has - absolutely pathetic. Treating any individual this way due to a sour taste you have in your mouth from an insurance company is greedy and shows that money is on the forefront of his mind.
I've been seeing Dr. Stoever for two years for hypothyroidism. If you like a friendly, talkative doctor who is going to spend lots of time with you or engage in a conversation about your medical needs - he is not for you. He seems to know his science, however his patient care could be improved. Each time I go he stares at his computer screen for the 5 min he spends in the room with me. He's looking over your test results while your there in the room instead of actually talking to you. He does not look at you only the screen and will occasionally ask you a question. I believe he could take 5 min. and review your tests before he actually enters the room then he may actually be able to look up and make eye contact. On the positive side, I will say that I rarely have to wait in his lobby over 15 min. and he has gotten my tyroid levels to a normal range when my primary doctor couldn't do that in 7 years. That's why I go back, that and he's on my insurance.
Do not expect to get any results from any tests that Dr. Stoever runs for you. You will pay him for an office visit and all of the lab work, but after that he will wash his hands of you. What is the sense of seeing a Physician that cares nothing for his patients. Do NOT visit this office, and if you do...RUN to another caring Physician as fast as you can.
