Ratings for Dr. Karen F. Schwartz
I have never been to her office without waiting for AT LEAST 2 hours. I have had 2 appointments where she kept me waiting so long I just walked out. After being a patient for 2 years she has still been unable to regulate my thyroid and my symptoms persist. Time for a new endocrinologist.
I have to go there next week and am dreading it, filled with anxiety about the visit. Last time waited three hours and was in tears. My daughter was with me - thought it would be a quick visit for a Rx. Took a day off from work. There has to be better. Why does a physician act this way? Is there a mental illness involved?
I've been with her for a few years and still can't get my thyroid right. Today she told me she never gave me unithroid...I came home to my prescription from August which was unithroid I will never go back to a dr that doesn't even know what medicine she gave me!!!!!
Dr. Schwartz is very knowledgeable medical professional who has an extensive knowledge in her speciality. She takes her time and really listens. I rate her very highly. As someone who deals with doctors in my profession, I rate her excellent.
This was the worst doctor experience in my life. First of all they must triple book because I was in the waiting room for an hour and a half and the other patients seem to find this normal with this office. When I was finally called in, a very nice nurse weighed me and got my height, the. I was back to waiting another half hour before the doctor came in. She was very nice and the rest of the appointment went well, so I kept my feelings about the wait to myself. After getting my blood results back she wouldn't call my prescription in so I had to pick it up. When I called back the next day about getting approval for my prescription for my insurance company, I was treated rudely by the secretary who didnt seem to want to help me at all. I was asking how long she thought it would take for a nurse to get back to an insurance company, and what kind of side effects I would feel from this perscription ( since the doctor didn't take any time to explain anything to me) I asked if either a nurse or the doctor could call me back. The doctor called me and basically said if you don't want to take the medicine don't, and also FIND A NEW DOCTOR. I don't know how she got the impression that I didn't want to take the medicine but that was all she had to say to me and hung up on me! I called the secretary back and she said the doctor had been listening to only HER side of the conversation and took it from there. I am disgusted with the events that went on this morning, I'm literally sick to my stomach. This is the worst experience I've EVER had with a doctor. I can't believe that these women treated me this way. I will be leaving this rating everywhere possible. DONT WASTE YOUR TIME COMING TO THIS HORRIBLE, UNPROFESSIONAL, UNCARING ESTABLISHMENT. These people should be embarrassed of themselves. I'd like to give 0 stars.
