A joke. Any provider that’s any good is not there long. Saguaro Clinic PCM will only see their patients once a year. ER, if you are unfortunate enough to go, will tell you to follow up the the PCM that you CANT get an appointment with.
First PCM at this facility listened to me and they actually found hip and femur issues after he ordered X-ray which evolved into more X-ray and MRI, then orthopedic referral. Down hill from there, as I was this guy’s appointment just before lunch and basically he said to find a orthopedic oncologist and set it up through my civilian doctor.
Fast forward to my next “annual” PCM appointment, and guess who is no longer there. Now I see a condescending doctor who wouldn’t listen or truly look at anything that I had listed that is still bothering me. Instead, let me diagnose with generalities. When I complained about the pain in hip, shoulder, and ankle that have been happening for about a year now, his reply was “what do you want me to do, give you a new body?”
First and foremost, he doesn’t know me. I don’t bring something up unless it really is an issue, and past discoveries by real doctors have led to a few surgeries for issues that had the doctor not truly listened, would have gone untreated. I know my body, my pain tolerance, and what is normal for me.
This place is a joke!
