Beware of this office. They will start treatment then dismiss you under FALSE ACCUSATIONS ..., Feb 24, 2013
You WILL NOT get the medication you need for you hypertension. Janette, the office manager will dismiss you and tell lies to the insurance company after the doctor has been paid for the month with your medicare hmo plan to take care of you. Once you are seen 1 time with any HMO plan the insurance cannot retract the money they gave the doctor to provide care for the ENTIRE month. She will demand you leave and refuse to let you finish your appointment with the doctor WHILE YOU ARE IN AN EXAM ROOM. They send you to doctors for things you never were in there for and NOT treat you for the reason you came in. They order lab work and then refuse to give you the results. Being diabetic with hypertension, it is important for my medical well being to get such results to make sure the medication is either working or overworking. The doctor has had probation with disciplinary action which you can request information on. I hope this will help future patients in making a better informed decision about the doctor they see.
Waste of my time, poor attitude, service from staff..., Feb 22, 2013
I had to make at least 12 calls before I was able to reach the office and schedule an appointment. At times the line was not working. Other times the person left me on hold so long I had to hang up. Finally, I spoke with someone able to answer some basic questions and I accepted the first appointment available 2.5 months later.
Before agreeing to request her services I requested to meet the doctor and pay for her time. Her staff person said she didn't know what the cost was that the price was up to the doctor.
The morning of my appointment the office seemed geared for high volume and low personal attention. I found staff behavior poor. When answering the phone no one identified who they were. None of the 3 women I met after I arrived introduced herself. I saw no name tags. The reception desk person scanned my license without explaining or asking permission. With all the ID theft taking place nationwide that made me uncomfortable. The young woman who escorted us from the reception to the exam room addressed a lady that was there at the same time and I as "dear" and "girls."
After I waited in the exam room an unhappy looking woman introduced herself as the office manager and closed the door. She said she was sorry (she didn't appear sorry but rather in a hurry for me to leave). She went on to say that the doctor and her colleagues in the practice never meet people before they become patients, implying I should leave. She waited to make sure I left the exam room.
Peddles quack medicine and couldn't care less about a patient's time (part 2)..., Jan 29, 2013
will charge you like a wounded bull for their own precious time? Arrogance? Disdain? The kind of greed that pushes them to cram their appointment schedule with as many patients as possible per day? And would it kill their staff to at least offer up some kind of token apology or explanation when keeping you waiting interminably? Whatever, I got up and left in disgust.
Having done my homework via the internet on the allergy test Dr. Masri peddles so stridently, and added to the manner with which he so casually played with my own health via the dismissive attitude he took to the views of gastroenterology specialists I’ve seen through the years, I’d already decided that he was certainly not the kind of medical practitioner I wanted to entrust my health to, or that of my family, on a long term basis. After the fiasco of waiting to see him so long, my view was doubly confirmed.
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!!!
Her license should be REVOKED, at the very least. Don't entrust your health to this woman...., Nov 28, 2012
This woman verbally assaulted me for a solid hour in an exam room. Stupidly, I meekly tried to "defend" myself--under the completely misguided notion that there was anything rational about the assault. She railed at me that I was going to DIE one minute & then later railed at me that I was NOT going to die (insinuating, I guess, that I was taking my serious health issues too...seriously), and then ranted about how I arrived at my appointments "so meticulously put together..." The insanity of the encounter, for me, only rivaled that of my dad violently abusing me as a child. When I was folding my list of questions up to leave, she yelled at me to sit down in my chair. She was so close to blowing right past yelling & becoming physical that I was paralyzed where I sat. For at least 1 full hour I endured this woman's wrath. The cherry on top of this encounter was that she charged both me and my insurance company for the privilege of abusing me. I have very serious health issues & I felt too traumatized to seek out another doctor for 2 years following this assault. I thought she was great when I first started seeing her. After being subjected to the monster, however, I look back & see something different--the exams (gyn) and biopsies she performed on me leave me feeling as though I've been completely & thoroughly violated. She also told me completely erroneous things, like my thyroid would be destroyed and my thyroid needed to be surgically removed. She has absolutely no business being in this business of *helping* people & guiding their health. Do not trust yourself or your loved ones to this woman. You cannot possibly know what will happen & how damaging it will be.
