I am a member of Anthem Blue Cross and found Dr. Dan Hopner office on their website and scheduled an appointment to see Dr. Hopner at his Aborn office but when I got there for my appointment I was told that Dr. Hopner’s physicians Assistant PA Mr.
Romero will be seeing me and that Dr. Hopner is not in office and I was waiting for about 30 minutes while I can see him chit chatting with the staff because his assistant left the door open.
I have no problem with seeing a PA because for 40 plus years I had 0 issues with any PA until I met Mr. Romero. PA Mr.
Romero is the most incompetent Physicians Assistant I have ever met, he should not even be allowed in doctors office because he introduced himself and started giving me a lecture on the medications I was taking for 20 plus years that work very well for me and were prescribed by the best specialists in the field.
He almost wanted me stop taking my medications and gave me a lecture that had nothing to do with the reason I came to the doctors office.
I had a minor skin affection that he wrote a prescription for Clotrimazole 1% that I later found was available on over the counter.
I ended up scheduling an appointment with a specialist who within seconds of looking at my skin prescribed a medication that resolved the issue within week.
I wish that had ended there but during my first visit he diagnosed that I had urinary tract infection and I need to start a course of medications right away and ordered bunch of lab tests that were in the same building.
I started the course of the medications had severe side effects. I called the office to find out about my lab results and found out I had 0 issues according to the nurse and was told to stop the medications.
I am planning to file a complaint with the medical board regarding Mr. Romero.
Unfortunately, my previous primary care physician retired and I had to pick this office but warning to others that are looking for a primary care physician to come here.
