    My doctor is amazing! I am so thrilled to receive care at UK.

    The only issue I have is what she went off the summary of my case visit on 7/5/22. It's like she didn't know some things about my condition that she would know if she would of just read previous summers or read past reports.

    I'm not sure why the older generation (doctors) are like this. Ques. 1. When I asked questions, she just said uh uh, I'll get to that. No education was said to me. Ques. 2. No positivity was transparent. No smiles.

    I really want to have faith and bond with Dr. Lohr but I am afraid it isn't happening after 3 visits. Her information compared to the Resident who came in pre Dr. Lohr did not match. I admit I was frustrated with my wait time but was trying to get the maximum care for my issue. I have questions that I am not comfortable asking, I felt the resident was very dismissive and did not listen or offer recommendation for findings (High BP), While I waiting over an hour and a half, I felt very rushed through my appointment and like I was not a priority - more of a bother than a patient. I would really like to see another Dr but have been told that is not an option.

    I had high hopes for this visit. A conclusion was made early on. I provided a timeline of symptoms, labs and pain. Doctor did not look at it. Resident did read it and perhaps conferred with doctor, but main issues were overlooked. I was disappointed

      I was so excited when I got an appointment with the chief of Rheumatology but I got no help and can't see her again for 3 months. She is also passing me off to a nurse because my case isn't bad enough :(

      I have never been made felt so stupid at any doctors appointment. My pain and health issues are all just in my mind and made up. I deal with 24 hour constant pain, yet was belittled and told to lose some weight. I know with 186lb at 5'2" I am overweight, but that was uncalled for. I also suffer from depression and had a major anxiety attack that night. Never will I come back there regardless of how much pain I am in.

      At this point, I can't recommend Dr. Lohr, or UK Rheumatology. Dr. Lohr not once during my visit asked about my symptoms and/or how I was feeling. Reading blood work results is only a part of treating a patient-it should not be the only thing a doctor considers.
