Glad he's gone. Guess he couldn't handle it. I was not impressed by him or his arrogant attitude. Good riddance.

He left because he only wanted to deal with 20 patients a day and hardly ever wanted who deal with sick children. He sat there and literally dogged Dr Aldea to me in front of my children, and they loved her. He was just money hungry and he was VERY rude to the girls down there. Witnessed it on a few occasions. He always looked stressed out. I'm sorry, but when you have to dog out the person who is letting you use their practice to make you look good, then you must not be as good as you are letting on to be. There were occasions that I had to wait days to get either one or not all my kids seen by him when they were sick. He also didn't want anything to do with the hospital. So there wasn't any pediatrician on call at all for the practice. I am thrilled that Ann May is back! At least she wouldn't throw something off on someone else that could have been nipped in the bud before it escalated into something worse! GOOD RIDDANCE TO BAD RUBBAGE I say!
Oh really

What did he say about Dr Aldea? I loved her, I know she was moody at times, but she was a very good doc and we were very lucky to have her in our small town. She is so missed by my family. I hate that she is gone. It was awful trying to get an appt when he was there, pure hell. I thought, dang,what am I to do? I know I made a comment about that some time ago about having to drive to Roanoke to the doc and some smart ass said I was an unfit mother b/c I complained I had to drive. Obviously someone who is ignorant. I mean, we all want a doc locally to take our ill children too. I like Ann as well. I just hate that he talked about Dr Aldea badly, she was wonderful to my family and to me as a child!
Kids go to dr Boyd

My children go to dr Boyd and I had to call the we one night due to my daughter having a really high fever! When I called I asked for the pediatrician on call and the rr nurse told me that it was dr. York but that I would have to call another number bc he doesn't like to be bothered at night. I called the number they gave me and it was to his dr office and the message said that the practice would not be open until the 26th of December ( I called the night of the 21).

He has NEVER been affiliated with the hospital so that is why you were given the office number. They gave everyone the office number. I hope they get Ann some help in there or she might leave as well. As for him downgrading Dr A, he said that she didn't keep track with the patients medical past and history when they were seen. Basically that she didn't know what she was doing and that she left him in a shit storm.

I never made it in to see Dr. York, never could get a sick appointment. They told me to just take my son to the er. Went to the new walk in clinic and everyone seemed nice. 25 $ copay with oir insurance so wasn't bad.

I never could get a sick appt either. Dr Aldea would always see my child when they were sick, always! Shame on him for talking bad about that woman, she took care of most of adults and children in this community for 30 yrs. She was old school, not into all those computers that most docs use today, she listened to you and did not sit there punching crap into a computer the entire time.

That office is the most screwed up place ever! They NEVER return your calls or give you results of anything. I don't think that place is ran well at all. Who ever they have running their offices need to be canned.

And if you try to make a formal complaint about the office procedures or lack there of, they refer you back to the office manager. What a joke! I'm hopeful that Ann will get things back on track. Dr. York was too busy pointing fingers at the staff to offer any solution for the problems we incurred.

I never had any problems when I took my children there. Dr Aldea was my children's doctor for 18 yrs, office always called me when I needed them too, etc. Until that other doc came and all went to pot, glad he is gone!

I think it's a shame that people has nothing better to do than get on here and trash a doctor. I had several appointments with him and I loved him. He was very knowledgeable and spent a great deal of time with my children. I think it's a shame that he left this area he could have very beneficial. Now what does this town have since they fired him??? Dr Boyd, and Ann May. Only one of them is a pediatrician and neither one of them have hospital rights. Also he told me hisself that he was not affiliated with the hospital so there for he did not have to take call for the hospital. I would love to see him come back to this area and open up a private practice. I think he would do a fantastic job.

Why was he not affiliated with the hospital? I would rather have a doctor I know at a hospital, if that would arise. I did not know Boyd did not either, he used too. Isn't that what he had here, a private practice? He must not have liked it here or he would not have left.

He is gone I am glad still won't go back. I switched dr. boys best choice ever. If you like hippa LAWS they will discuss childs records with other patients that's staff which still their seen that myself I was there that day. Then heard me ask my mom wasn't that against law hippa violation then on out they were rude. They literally telling at a woman trying to get her sons record straight because had it wrong told her she was a liar come back tomorrow. I believe I told them calling someone over too them she ended up leaving with records still wrong. Then next guy come in discussed her file and situation altercation conversation with him openly in front slot people in waiting room. Mind this staff still works there watch your privacy and records.
