I spent ten minutes explaining to this man how my antidepressants were no longer working and when I stopped talking, he looked at me and said, you have plenty left thought right? Shouldn't a doctor want to listen to and help his patient? I also told him I had severe hip and back pain and he told me to learn to live with it. Therefor I had my x-ray reports which showed that I have arthritis in my hip over to his office. I called his office to explain I was upset with my last visit and the fact that he ignored my request for a new antidepressant and basically told me to live in pain. I explained that I was not even asking him to call me in a prescription for pain but just wanted him to know what issues I truly do have considering he blew it off at my last visit and made me feel like a drug addict. His nurse spoke with him and called me back... His response was I need to find a new PCP. Mind you, the only thing I was asking this man for was a different antidepressant. The only good thing I can say is his office staff is great. I just feel that at 80+ years old he has lost interest and just does not want to listen to or care for his patients any more. Perhaps he is just too tired. I just want people to know what an uncaring, oblivious doctor they are dealing with! I would definitely look elsewhere!
