Negative Comments

I told the doctor the meds I take made me feel sick. Within that same discussion she suggested the dose be doubled. She seemed antagonistic. In conclusion she said I was free to do what I wanted. She did not offer encouragement or any problem solving ideas.

General Comments

Well, I do not expect to return for another visit. I don't want to continue as her patient. Isn't that the same as saying "you're fired?" Thats what I am now saying.

She found two things that I had suffered with over 12 years and got the issues solved. She spent a great deal of time with me making things smooth. Happy to get these two issues solved after not feeling well for so long. She is patient and professional.

Will lie to your face!

Positive Comments

The office staff at TBMC is AWESOME.

Negative Comments

She lied about saying she contacted the patient to her face, patient told her on Friday she was allergic to the medication she wanted to call in. Metzger said she would find another medication. She called in later that afternoon, verified with the pharmacy, the exact medication the patient is allergic too! Saw the doctor again on Monday and she lied that the medication was called in before we saw her on Friday.

General Comments

Avoid this Doctor at all costs! She will want to sent you for unwarranted tests and lie to your face!

Bright running shoes are cute but not appropriate for medicaloffice. YRMC pay her more so she can buy new shoes.

"Arrived at 7:50 a.m. Taken in to exam room at 8:05 a.m."
Very unprofessional and lacking communication with staff, as well as unfounded accusation towards patient.

Negative Comments

When I arrived on my first and second (my last) visit, there was only one other car in the parking lot. Felt like I walked into a big corporate office that had been down-sized with only two office personnel. Dr. Metzger was recommended by another physician in Prescott, as she was a doctor 'in network'. First visit 9/7/2012 went okay. This was a 'wellness' visit, as I had not had any medical insurance for a few years and just became Medicare eligible. I was supposed to have received a pneumonia and tetanus shot on that day, but it was not administered. I was also scheduled to have lab work done, as well as a bone density scan. My follow-up visit was on 10/1/2012, and the doctor was to look over my test results and then schedule me for a mammogram around 10/5/2012. I arrived at 7:50 a.m. on Monday, 10/1/2012 for an 8 a.m. appt. Upon arrival, the front desk person was having issues with their computer/printer. At 8:05 a.m., they finally got the system back up, I paid my co-pay, and was called in to the exam room. The asst. took my blood pressure, asked some questions, then the Dr. Metzger came in. The first thing she said to me was ... "When you arrive 15 minutes late, it makes me late seeing other patients and it is not fair to them, so next time be more prompt in your arrival." I was shocked and told her that I did arrive on time and that the ladies up front had computer/printer issues. She said that the ladies up front told her that I didn't arrive until 8:05 a.m. Needless to say, Dr. Metzger seemed very distant and aloof from that point on. The results of my lab and bone density tests were not normal, and she briefly went over them with me. She wanted to know why I didn't go in for my mammogram as well, as she said that she had ordered that along with my bone density scan. I did not know that she ordered the mammogram too. It was documented on my patent follow-up paper that the mammogram was to be scheduled on 10/1 for 10/5. When I left the exam room, I felt very uncomfortable and went to the front desk and told the ladies that 'the doctor jumped all over me for being late, as she was told by the front desk that I was 15 minutes late'. The only comment made by one of the three ladies was .. 'well, it's Monday morning'. I don't know if anyone told Dr. Metzger I was late, or if she just assumed I was ... but someone is not telling the truth ... and since that's the case, I simply cannot trust my care, my health, nor my life with Dr. Metzger, nor her staff. Patient/doctor/staff relationship ~ BROKEN! Cannot recommend at all!

General Comments

Dr. Metzger could certainly use more training when it comes to patient/doctor relationship and also doctor/staff relationships. She seemed very stressed, possible 'burn out' ... might need a sabbatical. I cannot imagine if I had no family to turn to being treated as I was. Seniors w/o family, be careful.
