Physician who has time for longer appts
My husband and I are really struggling to find a doctor in the Berkeley/Albany/N. Oakland/Emeryville area. The doctor we are seeing now is hard to get in touch with, doesn’t return calls (I’ve left more than 3 messages), and doesn’t seem especially interested in our health (although he is very nice). His office staff is a disaster and has lost records, incorrectly schedules appointments and billed us for work we did not have done. I have checked the archives for new recommendations but many of these wonderful sounding docs are either not taking new patients, do not take my insurance or are too far away. I refuse to believe that I can’t get good health care in the East Bay! Can someone please recommend a doctor (female preferred) who is interested in taking care of people, is accepting new patients and has a competent office staff? Icing on the cake would be a doc who will spend more than 2 minutes talking to us and won’t try to pump us full of prescription drugs at every opportunity. What we’d really like is to find a doctor who is just like our daughter’s pediatrician, Janet Perlman, but cares for adults. Any recommendations will be appreciated! Exasperated and (thankfully) healthy
