So first off the wait SUCKS. I was never late to any of my appointments and it would legit take almost two hours to be seen for 5 mins.
I was seeing Dr. Tieu since I was 6 weeks pregnant ( first pregnancy btw) I hated the wait but I Sucked it up because I get it I’m not the only pregnant woman in the world and he has others In my head as long as he’s a great doctor screw the wait ill get over it.
This 1 star is about his staff and the care I received. First I met the doctor twice.
1st time he popped in while his PA was doing an ultra sound for like 45 seconds.
Second time he handled my ultra sound which I was very surprised since his PA was the only one I’ve seen.
We emailed a few times about medication I need but that was about it.
I had a uti for over a month and was only treated because I went to the ER and clearly my results indicated that.
I also went over past urine tests that were done at his office and those also indicted infection even tho I kept getting told I was fine but yet two hospitals confirmed the UTI when he finally decided to send my urine for a culture it came back clean because the hospital had given me antibiotics.. so yeah of course its gonna be clean.
I also have lupus and it wasn’t really talked much about no plan or anything my mom has had 6 miscarriages because of it and all I was told via email is were gonna check the babys heart when im further along which is fine and I understood but show some empathy a phone call about it to discuss would of been nice.
I have hyperemesis gravidarum aka I throw up everything all the time all day and night I was in the ER every other night due to dehydration and all his office did was give me medications that I repeatedly told them is not doing anything it wasn’t until a ER nurse bless his soul over at la Palma hospital who knew me and my husband by now because of how often I was there suggested at home care IV so I asked in an email about it to the doctor and he said we can do it… Im all for advocating for myself but why am I suggesting a course of treatment? It sucked that no one mentioned this to me before.
After the uti situation I sent an email basically explaining how I’ve felt neglected as a patient about 4 days later I get a call from the doctor at like 8am basically attacking me for feeling the way I did
I legit got off the phone and cried because he made me feel like I was being too hard of a patient which I don’t feel like I was.
Just because your office is over booking you doesn’t mean the quality of care should sever change.
Also tell me why anyone who isn’t the same ethnicity as him and his office is always waiting the longest and have all had horrible care? I hate to play a racism card in 2019 and this is a doctors office but I did find this very odd.
Some of us were there for the exact same reason as others but they were seen before us I legit asked someone what her appointment time was and it was after me yet she was in and out..
I don’t think he’s a bad doctor I think he needs to stop taking any more patients and give everyone the same care I was really excited to have him deliver my baby from all the good reviews but I had to switch OB’s I couldn’t trust him
Im sure ill get some crazy lengthy response from his office defending the care etc but I don’t care maybe this will get them to realize some of the issues
