Horrid doctor do not go to her. Don't know who gave her a license...., May 5, 2013
This doctor is a joke, she doesn't care about your health. Also, she doesn't seem to really listen to you when you talk. Truthfully I felt very uncomfortable with her and could't wait to get out. How did she get her license?
Avoid this one at all costs, ladies and gentlemen...., Apr 7, 2013
No interest in making patients feel better, or even at ease. She ignored my health history, dismissed everything that the referring doctor had said and all of the family history of arthritises and autoimmune disorders. She was absolutely rude and cold. It's only the clinic's policy of taking lots of tests and x-rays that made the visit at all worthwhile, as I ended up with information to take to a different rheumatologist! She was happy to write me off, and I'm so glad that I had the choice of other providers in the area.
Mislead about insurance co-pay and had to pay $350..., Apr 5, 2013
Went in for a mole consultation and got what I thought was included in my $40 co-pay (3 mole tests). 4 of their staff (including Dr. Fichtel) told me that the mole tests were "covered by insurance". Ended up getting a $350 bill for the testing. The situation went downhill from there...
It Doesn't Get Better Than This - Great Primary Care Doc..., Feb 7, 2013
Unbelievable find. In this day and age its amazing that a doctor like this one exists - one who actually spends TIME with you. I came away feeling like he actually cared about me and not that I was just one of thousands of patients he sees. He made the visit a pleasant experience... and I'm one of those people who hates to go the doctor. With Dr. Don, I can't wait to go back. He's fun just to shoot the breeze with, and even better is the fact that you come away confident that he knows what he's doing. And the staff is great. A fantastic doc. Highly recommended.
This doctor needs to be put out of business! Very unethical!..., Dec 10, 2012
Went to this dr. as a new patient. If I only would've looked up his reviews first! Was told to fast the night before. My appt was for 9 the next morning. Was not seen by the doctor until 2:30 in the afternoon! Went in for a well womans exam (no complaints) did not receive a pelvic exam but was charged for one. The dr. ordered a chest x-ray, intervaginal sonogram, EKG on my heart and a mammogram. Was sent in the restroom to perform my own pap smear as the dr. said he was not comfortable doing so himself because of my history of cancer?? The bathroom was disgusting. When I complained I was given a rag and a bottle of cleaning solution to clean it myself! I am going to report him to the AMA!!!
