San Francisco, CA
I was sent by Gallegher Bassett Insurance Company, a workers comp claim that I filed in May of 2009. The 2 times I went to this office, I waited over an hour just to get back to the exam room. The first time I saw this doctor, he answered his cell phone upon entering the room, then said "excuse me" and left the room for like 15 minutes. He didnt seem to concerned with what I had to say. He did give me a work restriction which was overturned by the insurance company, my employer, and himself without a whim! Sellout is my best description of this doctor....all about the Benjamin!
I was sent to see this "doctor" for my ruptured disc that happened at work. The first time she saw me, she told me that "If I would lose some weight, my back would feel better". She said this before she looked at my chart or my MRI to see that my L4-L5 disc was ripped from edge to edge. She even went out of the examining room to get a pamphlet for lap band surgery. She spent the remainder of the appointment "selling" me lap band surgery. This office and especially her, did absolutely NOTHING to help me. In fact, when I went in to have my final visit, she said she was not sure what to do with me, she told me to wait in the waiting room while she phoned my WORK COMP INSURANCE CASE MANAGER to see if she should release me to work or keep me on light duty.......DUH!!! If you need "actual" medical treatment, DO NOT SEE THIS DOCTOR!
