Ratings for Dr. G. KIM Bigley
Dr. Bigley is rude and condescending! He talks over you, and generally doesn’t care to hear a word you say. He can’t or won’t answer any questions! Prescribed medication for seizures, when there wasn’t a clear diagnosis, and no seizures! This guy really hates people, he needs to find his happy place.
I was treated by Dr. Bigley for 3 years. I was always respectful to him and he was never respectful to me. I would ask for clarification and/or reassurance about tests and treatment and he would raise his voice and speak to me like I was an idiot. I am a 71-year-old woman, I worked in the medical field for many years and I know what a good doctor-patient relationship is like. What I wonder is why I stayed in his care for so long. I would dread the visits to his office. He was successful in treating my ailment, but the side effects from the medication were so bad that after I "fired" him, I weaned off the medication and am waiting for my appointment with a new physician. Dr. Bigley's staff was pleasant when I would check in or check out, but when it came to scheduling other tests or treatment, they dropped the ball every time. The only positive thing I can say is that I never had to wait very long in the waiting room. Maybe it is because all his patients have left. If you are looking for a doctor who will listen to you and be compassionate, look elsewhere.
Although Dr. Bigley is a bit impatient, I like him very much. He has been a neurologist for a long time and he knows his stuff!! I just had an appointment with him. I see him once a year because of a ruptured (and repaired) aneurysm. Dr. Khosla, who is no longer in Reno, was my surgeon.
I don't know how Dr. Bigley's staff can stand to work for him! He is an incredibly rude and insensitive individual, especially given his position as a neurologist. People that come to him are already having issues...the last thing they need is to be treated rudely and yelled at by this man. I was having strange 'episodes' and he wouldn't even let me speak to explain what happened during the episodes. He would ask me a question, then when I tried to answer, he interrupted me every time very rudely in a raised voice. Without any testing at all, he decided that I have epilepsy and told me that he needed to report me to the DMV. He prescribed a drug, which I have no intention of taking, and ordered tests that can't even be scheduled for weeks or months out. I am NOT going back to this doctor and would not recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Bigley was very rude, and he is not a good doctor. When I saw him, I was walking with a walker. I asked him if he wanted to see me walk, and he said he did not need too. As we were leaving his office, he sad I had drop foot and ordered a brace. He yelled at me, and said, "What do you want me do, diagnose you with MS or Parkinson's disease?" I was very respectful to him, and did not deserve to be treated this way. Final outcome - another doctor sent me to UCSF. After many tests, and a very through exam with a second opinion, I was diagnosed with ALS. Currently, I cannot walk at all and use a power wheelchair. I am typing this with my one good finger. He is not just "bluntly honest", but is cruel, and I was in management for 35 years. I'm a very strong woman.. I should have seen an attorney, and had him charged with malpractice. However, I am struggling each day as I lose more and more of my bodily abilities.
My mother has been seeing Dr. Bigley the last three years for her Trigeminal Neuralgia. I like Dr. Bigley a lot. He is extreme intelligent. He is not "rude". He is just "bluntly honest". He doesn't like his patient to take medication because all medication are poisons. Don't you agree? He doesn't prescribe medication for you because he truly care about you. Human boy is so complicate, do you really believe pharmaceutical company they care about you? No, they don't. You got to take care of yourself and understand how much poison you are taking every day to damage your health. Dr. Bigley won't prescribe medication for you unless is really necessary. Dr. Bigley likes his patients ask "intelligent" questions. I agreed with that. When we're ill, to certain degree we are the one who understand our body more than anyone else. I would never let any trained M.D. or O.D. or Ph. D. or A.P.R.N. told me what to do. Ask intelligent question is our responsibility. Besides doctor's medical degree and trained knowledge their moral standard and their heart is what we need. If they have both qualities plus their knowledge and their years of experiences, then you have a chance to really improve the quality of your life. Dr. Bigley has the knowledge, experiences and the heart. I see that. Under the hard shell there is a soft and gentle heart. Dr. Bigley is a good doctor and a good person. Don't just look the surface. Look deeper in this man.
OMG ! I have never been treated so poorly by a health care provider in my life, this man was rude and condescending, I felt like I was sitting in front of Judge Judy. He didn't go over my MRI with me, when I ask about the results he snapped there was nothing he could do, but failed to tell me what was wrong. The most Unprofessional hateful man I have ever met. Run and don't look back. There has to be caring neurologist in Reno somewhere.
I have never been to such a rude, numb and careless doctor in my life! I have brain damage and was referred back to him by my primary care. I had refused to go back before because he was so terrible. I went back in and he had the nerve to say "I'm not giving you any more drugs" I can't take any narcotics and he didn't even check my chart to see this. Just accused me. Not only is he rude to his patients, he is rude to hospital staff. I heard him talking to a nurse when I was admitted and wish she had files a complaint. He needs to retire.
I have been seeing Dr. Kim Bigley for treatment of my MS for 25 years. I have found him to be incredibly knowledgeable and very friendly. He has been very compassionate and excited about my progress through the years. I recommend him to everyone who is need of neurology assistance.
