Difrent Patient Perspective about dr Bukholts. 

My experience at Dr. Benjamin Bukholts office was pleasant. He was very kind and understanding when I visited him for a consultation. He took his time and listened to my concerns. He isn’t a pushy doctor who wants to force medication on you. Instead, he cares about your health and will do his best to make it work for you. He will give you medication if necessary, but I was satisfied that he took the time to listen to me (over an hour) before deciding to talk therapy as my first option. I was relieved and completely satisfied with his professionalism. 5 STAR DOCTOR

Dr. Benjamin Bukholts: Overbearing, doesn’t listen. His eagerness to write prescriptions was alarming. It was shocking to see his inattention when it came time to address side effects and get feedback from me. His negligence when it came time to follow ups was also unacceptable. He was happy to pay the co-pay and not care about me as a person who has to ensure patients follow their medication. He didn’t follow up with me and my therapist. I find this lack of care and attention extremely concerning-especially since patients like me, relied on him for guidance and support. Instead of being a caregiver, he seemed to think it was his job only to administer medication. Then you have to manage side effects and manage symptoms on your own. He was often too busy to ask the right questions and was not able to focus. 

 

Dr. Benjamin Bukholts has been a great doctor. He has been a great doctor for me for more than ten years. The doctor diagnosed my problem and made the necessary adjustments to get me through it. Thank you for being such a kind doctor. 

 

This practice has been terrible for me. It is not what anyone needs. It is disgusting, and I will not be returning to this place. They have failed to submit invoices to my insurance, and now they think it’s okay to take my medical records hostage! The lack of professionalism and courtesy displayed here shocked me. 

Dr. Benjamin Bukholts has a condescending, unorganized, and terrible bedside manner. I worry about his patients who are in worse mental health than me. I was thrown into a vicious circle by his mistreatment. He increased my anxiety medication dosage more than twice in just a few weeks. This caused me to experience severe symptoms that required careful treatment. To get off the toxic dose he had me on, I had to stop working and start taking other medications. The office demands that you pay in cash. Their credit card minimum was $10 more than my copay. I saw the receptionist reject another patient who met the minimum. He misread my prescriptions and read another patient’s chart before me (HIPAA violations abound), laughed at me when he made me cry in response to his insensitivity in the office. I said that I didn’t know and I needed his professional opinion. I told him that I ultimately wanted to stop taking medication. However, after years of being on a very low dosage of anxiety meds, my anxiety was increasing and I needed to make some changes. Over the next few months, he increased my dose exponentially. 

Do not seek out a doctor unless you are looking for a medical professional to evaluate your situation and to make a decision about the best way to help you.
