Dr.Samuel Rush is a grumpy and stubborn old man. I asked him how to manage a cold I have.
His response, “I’d be rich if I had the remedy to a cold”.
That was what he said while half way out the door of the exam room.
He lives up to his name…Dr. Rush. Didn’t listen to all my concerns at all.
On another visit he referred me to a specialist who wanted me to immediately sign up for surgery.
I came back and asked Dr. Rush to be referred for a second opinion.
He snapped at me saying, “Dr. XXXXX is the best. I got the same procedure done by him.
You don’t need another opinion.” He ignored my request and I never got a second opinion.
Then he said I have a mole on my back that looks like it can be cancerous.
He proceeds to numb me in that area and sure enough he took out the scalpel and cut it off.
Of course, the biopsy came back negative. I left Dr. Rush.
My next doctor sent me to a different specialist for the same issue. She also sent me for an ultrasound.
She didn’t understand why Dr. Rush didn’t send me for an ultrasound.
It was the standard thing to do for my kind of issue she said. Guess what…this specialist said I was ok and the ultrasound came back negative.
I’m guessing Dr. Rush and the specialist are in cahoots to make some $$$. Dr. Rush admits he knows and uses the specialist.
If you ask me…AVOID AT ALL COST.
