Ratings for Dr. Kenneth W. Healey
Dr. Healey tied my tubes in 2003. I've had problems ever since. He made a second incesion and they both have a lot of scar tissue. It's enough that 5 out of 6 doctors told me I needed surgery to fix it. The only doctor that said no wanted to give it a little more time to see if the problems would stop. The area around the scar still swells and still gets tender. I've had another doctor look at the scar a couple of years ago and she was shocked at how bad the scar is and how tender it still is. The only reason Dr Healey tied my tubes is because the other doctor left the practice. If we had met Dr Healey before the procedure I would have gone somewhere else. When we went to Dr Healey to tell him I was having problems and wanted to know what he recommended. Dr Healey couldn't bother to put his phone down long enough to talk to us until we said we wanted him to pay to fix it. He has no bedside manner. I tell my female friend to avoid this practice. I wouldn't trust Dr Healey to spay a dog
Worse office Ever! After finding out I was pregnant, exciting because I am a new mom carrying my first child, I scheduled my appt with Arista Obgyn. They were the only office that could see me next day (because clearly no one booked appts. after meeting his horrible staff.) the doctor was unhelpful and in knowledgeable about how far along I was. the office would not give me any paperwork confirming my pregnancy. And they billed me for tests I hadn't been administered. And when calling to see if my bill could be fixed, the rude woman told me that she had done the billing herself and it was right! They overcharged me almost $80. I might send her a calculator for simple math. I called back this morning to see if my records had been Reviewed. She told me Dr. Healey did it yesterday. After asking if they had been released she became hostil and yelled that she had already answered me. In my experience Reviewed and Released are different words with different meanings. I do not recommend them
Misdiagnosed with cervical cancer, by Dr.Healey. He said he could see it during the exam, and took a biopsy. He then explained the next steps,and gave me an information packet. After a week of worrying and crying, they called back with the biopsy results. NO, I did not have cervical cancer, and everything was fine. Later that day I called to express my feelings of how I felt and to ask why a doctor would say something like that without knowing for sure, and that I was upset. The receptionist was rude and said maybe three times and why are you upset. When I replied back, "I was told I have cancer, when I do not!I've been worried for a week, along with my family. Do you not understand why I would be upset?" I expected some sort of an apology, but instead I was told by her she had a college degree and then I was called a b**ch, and was hung up on. I have never experienced anything like this before. I wish I would have read the reviews before ever entering this office. They should be shut down!!!
Doctor and staff are lackluster at best. My wife had a complication in pregnancy, and getting any needed information is like pulling teeth. We decided to switch doctors, and they said they would not release records for 30 days. Now she is 7.5 months pregnant and can't get treatment for a month. Not fair that they try and play games when there are possible health issues at risk. I would not recommend anyone using this doctor for your own health and safety.
I was shocked by the unprofessionalism of Dr. Healey and his staff. The staff is unfriendly and disorganized, Dr. Healey is unable to answer or satisfactorily explain the simplest of questions. I asked that my care be transferred to another practice (something that seems to be quite common for them judging by the manner in which they received this request) and have been told that my records will not be released for 30 days (which is law - common practice being 5 days or less). Would NOT recommend this practice to anyone.
Dr.Healy has done surgery on my left ovary and removal of the fallopion tubes. I am grateful, although I don't think I was ready to come off of medications when I did I think he was great and took great care of me. I think that we should give him and his staff the credit they deserve instead of bad experiences. The team saved my life and create lives of many unborn cildren. The fact of the matter is the man is going to do what is best instead of what you want. He has been in practice enough to know the in and outs of gynocological conditions and treatments. Females tend to use these parts of their bodies to get pain meds and he is hip to that behavior. So if you have something wrong with you, truley I recommend this doctor for your female problems and child bearing experiences. This was a great experience for me and even with complications of the recovery the issues were handled properly. Thank You arista ObGyN.............Sincerly,CHASTITY STATON
dr. healy is a horrible doctor. he is rude and very inconsiderate. i went in after taking a home pregnancy test (it was positive) and he did an ultrasound. he told me i wasn't pregnant and the home test must have been wrong. he was very rude about it and i left his office crying. i went to a different doctor the next day and they did an ultrasound and i was definitely pregnant. 10 weeks and 3 days to be exact. i truly believe this doctor needs a new career.
I have been going to Dr. Healey for over 6 years. Dr. Healey and his staff have seen me through a miscarriage followed by a DNC and the healthy birth of my son. During my son's pregancy I was a nervous wreck and the nursing staff were always nice and helpful with any calls of concerns or questions I had. Dr. Healey was very aware of my fears of losing this pregancy and took great care to ease my fears, and was very nice when he would get a call at 2am when I went into early labor at 30wks. I ended up having to be induced when I began to bleed in my 36wk and Dr. Healey's knowledge and care allowed me to deliver a healthy baby boy. All the nurses have always been helpful and nice and I enjoy Dr. Healey's years of experience instead of a dr. who only goes by the book. I would recommend him to anyone.
