Dr. Maggie is a God sent! She really knows her stuff...., Apr 6, 2013|
I had been taking my daughter to her previous doctor for over a year for a chronic problem and he was unable to figure it out. Within 2 minutes Dr. Maggie knew what the problem was and how to fix it. If it was not for her my daughter would still be suffering. She is very knowledgeable, and offers many ideas for natural remedies to things if you are interested in trying them. Great doctor!
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...
Verbally abusive, egotistical monster with long history of drug addiction..., Feb 22, 2013|
This so-called doctor runs a shoddy "treatment" center where professionals are essentially extorted for money. For $10,000 a month, for a mimimum of three months, clients enjoy daily humiliation at the hands of underqualified, detached counselors. It's like a prison, where snitching on your peers for minor infractions is encouraged and results in punishment, usually physical labor and loss of contact with your family. It creates an atmisphere that breeds paranoia and hostility, like an episode of Survivor gone horribly awry.
Dr Teitelbaum is the director/warden of this expensive little internment camp. He is incredibly arrogant, rude, and sensitive only to his own ego. Possibly the only man ever diagnosed with penis envy, he is derisive and insulting to his patients. It is an incredible abuse of power, and he is as sadistic as he is incompetent. He frequently confuses patients and their histories, and his reports read like works of fiction. I could never have imagined such an emotionally and psycholoogcally damaging environment in the name of "therapy."
Shame on Shands Hospital for allowing this to continue. Do whatever you can to avoid this physician and his treatment center. Go out of state if you have to. Avoid him and Florida Recovery Center at all cost. I sure wish I had.
Best doc ever! Would recommend him without hesitation!..., Feb 13, 2013|
I'm not a fan of doctor’s offices, but I'd go back to Dr. Lazar without hesitation. Dr. Lazar is very straightforward, knowledgeable and professional. He gave me a flawless assessment of my situation, listened to my concerns and answered my questions with clear, well-informed answers.
If you have ear/nose issues, go see Dr. Lazar!! I can't recommend him enough.
Good staff, horrible "doctor" - Wallet stuffer versus actual clinician ..., Feb 10, 2013|
In a few words?
- Horrible bed side manner; dodged questions and threatened to quit when we inquired about alternative treatment methods. This dude is older than the internet as we know it and he was throwing hissy-fits like a rabid Bieber-fan.
- Extremely pessimistic. Every conversation boiled down to DEATH. Look, I get that cancer is no walk in the park, but rubbing our faces in it is counterproductive and honestly, believe it or not, does more harm than good. After the nth time of being told "HE IS GOING TO DIE," we stopped talking to him about and kept his patient visits short.
- Biggest gripe? Cancer research is a constantly developing field and new, novel discoveries are made often enough that you might spot it in the newspaper or online. It should have been a huge red flag when this so-called M.D. was absolutely clueless about significant changes in our understanding of how cancer works.
Final remarks? He gave up on our father when we walked through the door the first time. Had we known of his lazy, outdated way of treatment, we would have walked right back out of that room without hesitation.
