Ratings for Dr. Mark S. Erlebacher
Doctor took MIL because staff at Assisted living recommended him. When nurses said she needed to be seen to adjust meds, staff said she had 6 week wait to see doc. I complained that was too long for acute condition and received letter she was being dropped immediately a week later. When she eventually moved to the dementia ward for alzheimers at the home, she returned to his care. She did not receive medical attention at any point during his care. In 6 weeks she lost 15 lbs, had bleeding mouth, severe dehydration, and was left unclean. Staff stated that he see s patients on 60 day rotation, not as needed in end stage care.
The physician was an hour late and immediately started pounding away on his little computer. Upon saying that high blood pressure might be related to the long wait - too bad. He then went into a rage screaming the I was telling him what to do and it went on from there. I said nothing and he continued screaming and pounding on his little computer. My husband witnessed this also. He was upset he had not defended me but the verbal attack was so out of the blue. The physician missed a very important diagnosis. I found him quite unstable and in need of professional help.
We were told doctor doesn't work mornings or Fridays. Our experience was a nearly 3 hour wait for an appointment. When patient had an acute condition and had the audacity to try for appt. in less than a month, patient was promptly dropped from care. No follow up conversation or consultation on a medically significant condition was available. It is our opinion that the practice sustained by ties to Jewish community home rather than patient care.
