Dr. Korah was perhaps one of the most frustrating providers I’ve ever dealt with. Regretfully, because I had a HMO and it was a mid-year provider switch, I was “stuck” with her for the remainder of 2017 once I did switch over to her.
She was very off-putting during my initial appointment with her – I was cut off multiple times and my concerns were dismissed and invalided.
She wanted to talk about what she wanted to talk about, not what was important to me as a patient.
And let me tell you, our interpretations of my “presenting problem” varied dramatically.
Her bedside manner is terrible. I felt no empathy, compassion, or warmth.
I didn’t feel understood or cared for or that even my concerns were valid.
She is also very referral happy and sent me out to see several specialists; it made me wonder why I even went to see her for any of my concerns.
My blood pressure was always through the roof when seeing her.
Whenever I would see another provider (or even my new provider), it’s always been normal, if not described as “excellent”.
I can only deduce its only because of how much she stressed me out.
