Worst medical facility I've been to.

AVOID!!! DO NOT GO HERE!! You couldn't find worse medical care. There are much better physicians in canton to go to that actually provide good care. I saw Dr. Morris she seemed to be in a rush. The appointment lasted about 10 minutes and in that time she proceeded to tell me that I should not be on the medicines that I was on. She then told me that those medications are not meant for what I am taking them for. After this I told her that these decisions were made by a highly respected Endocrinologist and I spoke with him at length about the treatment plan before it began. Dr. Morris then got very defensive and told me that he was wrong and that she was going to treat it a different way that I didn't need a specialist. The " treatment plan " she introduced I shared with my previous Endo, he basically said she was a quack and to give her his information to contact him immediately, which she would not do. Apparently what she was trying to do is extremely dangerous, and she was completely wrong about my medications. The next day I brought her all of my records and treatment plans because they wouldn't request them from my doctor. If I had gone along with her recommendations the damage would have been irreversible. So needless to say I turned it down and told her I would find a new physician. I tried to leave a complaint with the office manager for over a month to no avail. He would not return my calls. I finally got him on the phone and he told me to shut up and that she was some world renowned doctor. On top of all this they sent my detailed medical bill to a family member that used to also go to this facility, addressed to them with my name and all of my information on it. They didn't even try to bill my insurance and tried charging me $480 for an office visit!! I just hope they didn't also send my information to some stranger. I have since filed a complaint with the medical board and a HIPAA violation complaint. This doesn't even include the unorganized, disrespectful, uncaring office personnel. I don't know what happened to this place but it used to be wonderful care provided by brilliant medical professionals but is now a joke.

I'm retired from the 5th Special Forces (Green Berets). I've had some wear and tear. My pain has been increasing exponentially since I retired. Then, Dr. Lobel started working with me. Long story short, after a year of trying other things, he inserted a spinal stimiulator under my skin and up along my spinal cord. I CAN WALK. Once around Walmart and I was done for the day. Now, I can function normally for a man my age. If you have a bad time with Lobel, you have a bad attitude and control issues. If you have the patience to do what the insurance companies require of him and behave, he's a miracle worker.

My pain is blocked

My issue is with Dr Steven Lobel

Every time I go to see him for my Three month check up to get my perception s refilled he calls me a drug addict because he fills my hydrocodone. This last time I went to see him around March 16 he was very rude, he said if I was selling my pills that he wanted half of the money, he said he was joking and for me to go on home and to get out of here, he didn't send a nurse in there when he left to give me my next appointment with him, He gave me shots in my Knee for osteoarthritis and I have it severely in both my hands my back and my knees, I have a bone in my right hand that has died and my pain is severe, he doesn't know how it hurts me, so I will go see me a lawyer and get medical associate s sued . my name is Patricia A Henderson, 736 Roscoe Collette Rd, Dawsonville Ga. 30534 and my birthday is 4/28/52
