"Very disrespectful. More concerned with their own ego than trying to understand patients. I received a call to speak about a referral and was interrupted - then given the definition of a rheumatologist. He expressed that I shouldn’t be telling him what a rheumatologist does. I asked for the call to be documented. He insisted I speak with patient advocacy. When reading over the call notes, the nurse and Dr. Bankole maliciously twisted wording and noted things incorrectly to make it seem as if I was the issue.. "

"Update: Even when in-person visits stopped during the pandemic his compassion continued to shine through on video calls and he went out of his way to make sure my mental well-being was healthy as well. He is always quick to respond to messages when I'm struggling and his loyalty and commitment to my health has never waivered. The biggest blessing I've ever had in life. Those who say he is condescending are misinterpreting his vast knowledge and strict care guidelines as negativity. He is confident in his decisions and regimens and I appreciate his honesty. He is not afraid to explain the risks of medications and your current mistakes in recovery. Whenever he is explaining the facts he brings you over to his computer where he shares the research and evidence with you like you're on his level. I would be no where without him."

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
