This review covers attitude and bedside manner only. I am not commenting on Dr. Tribble Stacy’s technical skills or general competency outside of bedside manner.
I am shocked by the experience that I just had with Dr. Tribble. She was the on-call doctor for my regular doctor who perscriped me some emergency medication for a terrible cough I was trying to ease before leaving the country for two weeks.
Two of my five prescriptions still hadn’t reached the pharmacy two hours after the other three.
So I called to let the doctor know and request that the two missing prescriptions be called in.
Dr. Tribble called me back promptly but I was on a noisy bus and didn’t hear the phone.
Fifteen minutes had passed before I listened to her message. She requested that I call back with the names of the prescription, which I did.
She then called me back again and was more rude than a doctor has ever been to me.
Unfortunately I am in a position to deal with doctors on a very regular basis and frequently need to make requests of on-call doctors.
I have never had an experience that even comes close to the rudeness and the combative attitude that Dr. Tribble displayed.
I still can’t figure out what her motivation was for acting that way.
If being treated decently is important to you, I strongly urge you not to see this doctor.
If you don’t care about that, she might be a perfectly fine fit for you.
