Ratings for Dr. William R. Page
Dr Page came through for me for the third time today with the virtually pain-free removal of my ureteral Stent in his office which has been with me for 3-1/2 wks after suffering a Kidney Stone earlier in the month. Previous to this, he performed the laser-blasting of the Stone at Eisenhower and before that took Benign samples of my Prostate in his office. I'm sure he thought I had the start of Prostate cancer, but to my satisfaction, all went well. Kudos to Dr Page for making the latest procedure easy and fast.
I went to the Eisenhower Medical Center in Palm Desert for a priapism (an erection that lasts more than 4 hours). The ER doctor looked at me for literally 15 seconds before saying that the on-call urologist had 'reviewed my chart' (but had not actually looked me or my penis) and 'decided to handle this in the OR' and that I would be admitted to the hospital for 'observation'. After all was said and done they charged my insurance $24,891!!! Just prior to the procedure he actually said to me "Do you want to feel it 1 last time? It's probably the last erection you'll ever have." Needless to say I refused to all the arrogant, condescending, rude and judgmental Dr. Page near me again. My new urologist, Dr. Faulkner, is incredible! I suffered the same situation again 2 weeks later and Dr. Faulkner took care of it in his office, 1 nurse, 30 minutes, and billed my insurance $167. I plan to file a fraud claim against Dr. Page for being a greedy ass who thought only of his billable hours.
I am age 88. I had several urologists at UCLA Medical until Dr. Page was recommended to me by a doctor here in the valley. He was able to do a laser procedure on my very large prostate. I can only say he probably saved my life and today I have no problems as I was having for many years. He took the time to explain what was going to take place, and he was there for me after the operation.
We've had ups and downs with Dr. Page, these last 6 years. Generally, he is a good doctor, and he has been helpful. My husband likes himand his nurse, who has NEVER been rude and surly. Office does not return phone calls in a timely manner, for the most part.
Prior to my appointment,and after sending in reams of data and another doctor's faxed referral, Page had not read anything and was busy scanning these documents while I spoke and did not look up at me. What's the point of all the documentation if you don't read it?. Nonetheless, we decided to schedule an in-office procedure to check for interstitial cystitis. The nurse was rude and had an attitude. She handed me a prescription. I told her that the doctor had not discussed it. She stated that the two Celebrex were for inflammation and taken prior to the procedure. When I had the prescription filled, I noted that the two pills were to be taken exactly 14 hours prior. A late afternoon procedure meant I wake up in the middle of the night, and I might not fall back to sleep. Since the pharmacist couldn't answer the question why precisely 14 hours prior, I called the office. The nurse stated, "That's the way the doctor does it." That is not a an answer. I canceled any further contact.
