As directed by staff, on my first visit I arrived early only to wait 40 minutes after my appointment time in a room before seeing the Dr. From my first meeting with Dr. Checa, he was incredibly unkind. He made constant eye contact with my father not me, why I don’t know but I felt really disrespected. He was very rude about my anxiety over needles/injection and he made several side comments that expressed that he didn’t want to even treat me. I have done anything to deserve the way I was treated, I was never rude or ungrateful as a patient. If putting me under anesthesia for a hip injection is that ridiculous or an inconvenience, then don’t offer it as a service. I deserve and expect to be treated with dignity as I am a human being, not just another patient. Dr. Checa was again, incredibly unkind when he “greeted” me the morning of my procedure making another rude side comment about having to do the procedure at Summit. If the staff at Summit wasn’t as exceptional and caring as they were, I would have got up and walked out. I sincerely hope that Dr. Checa’s behavior is not a true representation of MDPain! My 3 stars are for the fact that I was able to receive anesthesia and the hip injection was successfully performed. Thank you Dr. Checa.
