I went to Dr. Obiejemba for asthma.
Dr. Obiejemba was very rude, and she yelled at me for 40 min straight. All the docotors I’ve seen in my life are mostly kind and patient. She seemed very inpatient when I asked her questions about my symptom. She talked very loud, fast, and seemed to ignore patients’ questions. For example, she would say phrases such as “What did I say?” “I told you that”, etc. The rudest scenario is when I was visiting her, she asked me if she could take a listen to my lung. I said. “sure, can you wait a minute until I send the lab results to you (which she requested)”. She rudely said ,” no, I have another patient in 10 minutes. ” I have asthma, which is what I came here for. Her loud, rude manner made me very nervous and even triggered my asthma.
Adequate, friendly communication with patients is an essential trait for all physicians, as they have learned in medical schools. Inefficient or unfriendly communciation with patients or even disrespect toward patients, in which I believe, is a taboo in medical field. I suggest Dr. Obiejemba works on communicating with patients in a more friendly, patient way.
