Dr. Tuan Karen really does deserve all the one-star reviews that flood her page.
The first few times I visited her office, I noticed that she was speedy but because the procedures didn’t require much (getting an HPV shot or being prescribed medication), I wasn’t too phased.
It was only when I begun seeing her for check ups that I became peeved.
A check-up with Dr. Tuan is like a bad one night stand.
She comes in, jams her fingers in you, wiggles around for two seconds, and then she’ll tell you “I’ll call you” (which she doesn’t).
Then she’s out the door and never seen again while you’re still laying there bottomless.
Seriously, that is the extent of your checkup. You’ll wait twenty minutes for a consultation that is at most three minutes.
If you raise a question or concern about possible symptoms, she will give you her go-to answer of “Don’t use soap and eat oranges” before you even finish talking.
Every time I have a question, this was her answer. She gives no shits about listening to you.
I can live with doctors not making chit chat, but I need them to be thorough, caring of my health, and willing to answer my questions (which aren’t many).
For me to learn a year later that a test I took was never thorough when I specifically asked that everything be tested pissed me off.
Make that clear beforehand. Oh, and a doctor that gives me a warning that she’s opening the door so I know to cover myself would be much appreciated.
And yes, they do give you lid-less Dixie cups for you to pee in.
Then you’ll have to carry your piss down the communal hall, pass the patients waiting at the front office, and hand it over the front desk.
This isn’t part of a regular checkup though– again, she’s not that thorough.
I’ve never been a customer that requires much in anything.
I don’t ask a lot of questions and I am easily content, but man, even I think Dr. Tuan sucks.
