Arrived for a 1:00 pm appointment at 12:50. The office door was locked. Came back at 1:00. The door was still locked.
In June I was told I had an area of pre cancer on my face. It was suggested that it be frozen off. While there we discussed some acne I was having. I was told to follow up in three months. I assumed this was for the pre cancer spot. I made my appointment and went back as advised. At my return appointment I informed that the treatments for acne didn’t seem to work but didn’t ask fir anything alternative. The “pre cancer” spot on my forehead was also coming and going as I was told before they can. Conveniently it was not there that day. The provider treated me like “why are you here?” I was told to try to make an appointment when the spot appears on my face again. I then asked if there was a way to make sure it’s pre cancer rather than keep freezing it and ending up with a permanent mark on my face. I was told biopsy. I said to the provider “you believe it’s pre cancer though?” And she said that she “must have” if she froze it. She was clearly annoyed with me. As the medical assistant walked me out, she said “okay we will see you back in three months.” I was angry and replied “for what?!?” They will tell you to come back in three months regardless with no regard of how much your copay is. Mine happens to be $65 a visit for the standard. In addition I was prescribed two acne medications that cost between $45-65 each. Last year I had a biopsy and it came back with more possible diagnosis than prior to having it it cost over $200. I’m not sure about the other providers here. I would strongly recommend going elsewhere.
Patient personal information could be heard in the lobby from phone conversations. This is not appropriate and does not protect patient privacy. This was conducted by the Office Supervisor that was checking in patients and answering the phone.
The problem my wife and I have had is on complete skin checks they don't have you take our clothes off. My wife had to go in 3 times before they would look at a lump on her vaginal area. Then although she had external hemmoroids in the other area, they told her they saw nothing. I beleive they are new people fresh out of school like they come for a bit then leave. They tend to look away in disgust if asked to look at the whole body. Except for one person finally. It is just skin. Skin is their business. We have both had skin cancers. I hope they read this and change their policy of not looking everywhere at least once a year. Her mother actually had to have extensive skin cancer surgery in that area becasue of this kind of not spending maybe a minute more at the job. It really should be policy and they ought to be trained at school. I guess old people are just disgusting to graduates.
I saw Dr. Tedesco, over a period of many years every 6 months. Since his retirement, I have seen Adelina Matatova. It is taking some time to get used to her techniques. I am sure she is very qualified.
This was my very first time at a wellness center like Jade Star Acupuncture. Everyone that I came in contact with was very friendly, professional and ensuring. I selected an acupuncturist by reading all the bios a couple times. The initial consultation and acupuncture care was more in-depth than anticipated. Between the acupuncture and recommended self-administered physical therapy, I am pretty pain free. My only regret is not making an appointment a couple weeks sooner.
