I have had Doctor Stephen as my gp for 20 years and he is a caring man who doesn't pretend to know everything about everything, but he will always get the information needed at the drop of the hat! Further, I became very sick with a lung infection a few years ago and went to the hospital to get treated. The hospital er did not diagnose me correctly and I eventually saw doctor stephen who wa appalled at the treatment I received at the hospital. He even went as far as to call me at home to check in on me during my recovery. He is a doctor who truly cares for his patients! I dread the day he retires and I have to find a new doctor.
I don't get some of the comments I have read here. He has been my doctor since he has been in practice and I adore him. He was quick to have my mom diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. Had a referal appointment for her within days. He has care for my chidren, my other siblings and nephews. We all adore him. Best of all I brought by Autistic clients to see him as well and he is absolutely fantastic with people with special needs. Truely genuine. He has a great sence of humor, and takes his time with you.
I have been going to dr Stephen for nearly 20 years, ( I'm 26 now). I never got sick much as a teenager so didn't see him often. It's only recently that I've has some health concerns that I have gone to see him and he has made me feel not only unimportant- doesn't know my name, doesn't look me in the face when I talk to him, but also makesme feel disgusting! I went to see him for a skin problem and he literally looked at it, made grossed out look on his face and said "ugh!" as if his expression wasn't enough. His bedside manner is revolting and I feel as though he is burnt out and needs to retire. He is quick to simply prescribe medication for everything before talking with me about possible issues. Furthermore his staff is horrible- never have a met a more rude and nasty person at a reception desk! I am currently looking for a new doctor.
