I was referred to Dr. Amarante by another physician for a skin condition that was extremely frustrating to deal with, and had been as-yet undiagnosed and untreated. When I arrived, I waited for over an hour. Her Physician's Assistant looked at me first and only called the doctor when she herself couldn't make a diagnosis. Dr. Amarante walked in and immediately said "It's just chronic itch." She barely glanced at my skin, then refused to answer my questions about what chronic itch is and what she was prescribing. She ignored my other questions and concerns, and after a minute or so walked out the door while I was still trying to talk to her. Her assistant was better, but I had to keep asking what the prescription was for, how to use it, how long for, and what sort of results to expect. When I picked it up at the pharmacy, the pharmacist told me she'd never seen it used that way before and I had better be very careful- in fact, wash it off after 20-30 minutes each time (it was a cream). Dr. Amarante's office hadn't given me any such warning. I trust the pharmacist completely. I felt like I was brushed off at her office. Trying to get them to explain my condition and the treatment was like pulling teeth, and I saw no compassion whatsoever from the doctor. All the posters around there highlight acne treatments and cosmetic procedures. Maybe that's her specialty, but if you think you have a medical condition that could have serious consequences which aren't cosmetic, find another doctor.
The Doctors office has all these rules and fees. Don't be late! Make sure you go to your appointment or we'll charge you 50 bucks! Stand behind the line when checking in! Co-pay is due at the time you arrive! - Well I say bullshit! I spent my afternoon in the waiting room for an hour and a half at Dr. Lynn Amarante on Sheridan Drive in Williamsville, NY. And this isn't the first time. And my frustration was not alone. At least 6 other patients voiced their opinions in the small and crowded, seatless waiting room in Williamsville. - I'm sorry, but I fail to understand why we have such high insurance premiums, are restrained by their rules, governed by their schedules of being on time, but they don't have to be on time? Seriously? - Listen, I'm reasonable. I expect like most to wait fifteen minutes, maybe even thirty. Hey I understand, other patients sometimes take longer than expected. But this defines ridiculous. - An hour and a half! I'm so bored I had time to write this post. What exactly is the point of setting an appointment time if you are so overbooked that your 3 o'clocks aren't seen until 4:30 or 5? - For anyone who is reading, save yourself and do not become a patient of Dr. Lynn Amarante. And if you know of a great Dermatologist in the Williamsville area, please send me a message. This is the LAST time I will ever see this Doctor, and if I hadn't already paid, I'd be OUTTA HERE!
