I disagree with the comment putting down North Med and their doctors. My family and I have gone there for many years, always were happy with the treatment and find the medical professionals we see to be very efficient. The wait time in office could be improved, and do have our favorite doctors there, hopefully the is new change will benefit the doctors not hurt them. Too many people don't have the respect they should for the time and dollars that physicians and assistants have put into their careers. I trust my care as well as my childrens to two amazing people there, James LoDolce and Vincent Gemelli, adore them both. Will never go elsewhere...St Joe's hopefully will take good care of them.

My observations are different than yours. I appreciate that they have a lot into their careers, but more importantly, since that is over with, I would appreciate if they would take 3 to 4 minutes to talk about what your situation is rather than tell you a path you already have been down. If they won't do that, perhaps they can at least be more subtle about brushing off and downplaying what we are telling them about what we are experiencing. My last experience at this place was like dealing with an obnoxiously pushy car dealership salesman. Maybe they don't mean to be, and I'm sure there are some real A-hole patients, but there are also patients that live in their own bodies every day that have potentially valuable information to share.
