I came across a critical review of Dr. James Garrick on a Scam Reporting website – DirtyScam.com, titled ‘Few Things Really Make Me Cry Hard’.
DirtyScam allows anonymous submission of complaints from angry consumers and victims of scams. Since the website is hosted offshore (probably in Russia or India), we take this (negative) review against Dr. James Garrick with a pinch of salt.
Here is what the review says –
ARGHHHHHH! I was not even scheduled to SEE Dr. James Garrick! I was scheduled to see Dr. Lewis, then RESCHEDULED to see Dr. Prieto (who seemed great according to other ) then I was baited and switched and ended up with this guy.Look he wasnt awful and didnt hurt me more BUT I dont feel he really listened to me well. I didnt leave feeling 1oz better than I did when I got there.I went in to see him about pain in my knee caused by a specific incident in a class at the gym.Isolated, sharp pain- that occurs repeatedly with similar motions.I am not trying to self-diagnose but basically he told me there was nothing wrong, it was a fluke pain and now my leg needs to restrengthen around it.To which I replied- well are you saying my leg was weak before so thats why I got hurt? Because he compared the perceived strength I had in each leg and noted that my one was now “weaker- no shit Sherlock, Ive been laying off it considerably for 2 weeks of course its feeling weaker! Argh!So without even any next steps set forth beyond “work on strengthening that leg for the next 2 weeks and if it still hurts come back and Ill have been wrong I am left with no real sense of security or feeling like someone had any conclusion for me whatsoever.I would have appreciated a “it could be this or “it could be that and an “in 2 weeks if it still hurts heres what well do or re-examine But no. He seemed pretty confident he was right and that its really nothing- I am not sure I even believe him and am probably going to get a second opinion. Dammit- I wish I had even seen the doctor I was SCHEDULED to see.And I DID note that to the front desk staff and asked WHY they sent someone else in to see me- the only reason I was given was that Dr. Prieto must have been very busy- WHAT?! SO?! you tell someone it will be a few minutes of waiting- you dont send in another doctor- thats rude.You just dont send another doctor in when one is busy without at least noting it to the patient.I had high hopes for this visit- really wanted to feel like I know what the F was up with my knee. I am infinitely bummed at the moment.Few things really make me cry hard- this experience had me leaving the office in angry, upset, frustrated tears.
