Ratings for Dr. Michelle Warren
By all accounts Dr. Warren is a senior citizen. She is definitively well past retirement age, evident both in behavior and cognitive thought process. Cleary it is obvious there are (many) medical professionals able to renew their medical license yet truly unable to perform-nor willing to acknowledge their deficit.
I went to her for a few years. She's cranky, has a poor bed side manner and I feel as if she's not up to date on the latest hormone therapy. When I mentioned to her I was having terrible night sweats and the hormones didn't seem to be helping these symptoms she got very aggressive. She prescribed an estrogen and then forgot to prescribe the progesterone that's needed to take with it. The pharmacist called me and asked if there was a reason only half the prescription was prescribed by the doctor. So I had to call her office back, and the front office told me that she only worked 2 days a week, and the doctor would get back to me 5 days later. Don't bother throwing away $750 cash for her services.
Dr. Warren was rude, cold and condescending. She was either unwilling or unable to explain anything to me. She was abrupt and abrasive and made me feel like an inconvenience. She was not interested in answering questions and could not be bothered to take my medical history. She has someone else do it and then when I met with her she knew nothing about me. I waited over an hour to see someone. The practice is disorganized, dirty and disinterested. Even her white lab coat was filthy. They exam room was filthy and the tiny room for taking blood was disgusting. I have no idea how she got the press she has because it is 100% undeserved. She was only interested in getting me to take hormones and would not discuss options. Hormones or nothing. I left there with 3 prescriptions after telling her I was not comfortable taking them. She does NOT listen and if you question or argue with her she gets very nasty. I have had a few follow up phone calls and she was rude and abrupt.
Dr Warren is completely out of it though she has a very impressive resume and press. She is very scattered and keeps you waiting for a long time. She can't seem to focus while discussing the issues and has a young MD sit in the room to kind of remind her or do her work. To boot, my second visit a mere month after my first, she had no idea who I was or what my issues were which we had discussed at length at the first meeting which cost a whoppin' $450. I am very educated and I provided her with prolific medical history, records, et al... She seemed to have forgotten all the information. When I pointed out that she had all in her folder, she made up some excuse and fluffed it. When I asked about medications, she recommended some old meds that historically have bad sideffects and are rarely used today. Also recommended a medication that is contracindicated with my health issues which I called her on. AWFUL- a total scam at my expense. Shameless - should be stripped of her credentials
Not only are Dr. Warren's prices outrageous (she does not accept insurance), I would think that at a rate of $400/hr she could have cracked a smile. I was the only patient in the office, but still had to wait half an hour. Then, after the most uncomfortable pelvic exam, and an insulting consultation, I left with a massive bruise from where she had literally stabbed me while trying to draw blood. She may have been named one of New York magazine's Best Doctors ten years ago, but I can tell you that even lowly paid med students are more pleasant and attentive than Doctor Warren. Save your money, time and frustration, by choosing another doctor.
