"I had an appointment in the office yesterday I was forced to wear a mask by the office staff. I tried to inform them that I was a burn Survivor and I had trauma concerning masks. They kind of laughed at me and said sorry you have to wear a mask so I took the mask and stepped outside. When the nurse came to get me she shoved a box of masks in my face and told me I had to wear one tried to explain to her same results zero Compassion or empathy or understanding for my trauma. Nurse took me to the room I tried to sit down I'm in a severe amount of pain right now I was moving around finally I asked if I could lay down on the bed. So I walked over to the bed and stood there for almost a minute and asked her to please open it so I could lay down she huffed and came over and opened the step. She left and when she did I started feeling a panic attack coming on and it just got worse and worse by the time Dr McKenzie came in I was a full-blown panic attack all she had to say to me was why are you ...
here and my panic attack got worse. Zero compassion and understanding for me sobbing. I asked her a couple questions and then all the sudden I lost it I jumped off the bed through my mask and ran out the door. Not one person came after me no one checked on me. I could have hurt myself or someone else. This is ridiculous that there was no accommodations, no empathy no compassion from any person there. I have been through many doctors offices and had many surgeries because of my Burns I have never been treated like this in my life "

"I have NEVER been treated so rudely, unprofessional & coldly by a so called professional medical worker then I was by Dr. Worthington’s office staff, especially the woman at the front desk who answers phones and books appts. She has a horrid attitude and treats you like you are some sort of enemy of hers instead of providing caring answers to simple understandable questions. I had an upcoming colonoscopy in a little over a week. My diet was already VERY restrictive after having a 3rd bout of Diverticulitis a month ago. I was eating healthy when I had the attack and not until the last couple weeks was I able to figure out a diet that was safe for me to eat without any distress or new attacks. I have been in tears before that frustrated w/not being able to eat anything. I called the office today to ask about the “week before rules” since the instruction paper they give you is very limited. I do plant based protein shakes in the morning, & strained organic fresh juicing (no pulp) in the afternoon ...
daily w/a healthy dinner later that is completely free of gluten, dairy, soy, red meat, hamburgers, pork, seeds, skin on fruit or vegetables including potatoes, or raw whole vegetables or fruits in pieces, or any processed, fast food or restaurant food. Well I asked her about the juicing since it’s a main part of my diet & she was sarcastic in response since the paper states Raw fruit & vegetables. She also wasn’t even sure of herself so I pressed on. I said I understand eating whole chopped up raw veggies/fruits would be bad but why not juice? It didn’t make sense to me & I’ve had colonoscopies before that didn’t have anything like that. I asked if it was strained of all pulp & all it was is juice why couldn’t it be drank during that week before? I told her my diet was very limited already & I didn’t have a lot of choices. She acted indignant & rude so I got off the phone & spoke to my husband who is one of the manager’s at the YRMC hospital in Prescott. It didn’t make sense to him either & I was frustrated. So I called back (glutton for punishment I guess) to ask about smooth peanut butter the week before. The paper just says no nuts, seeds, corn, chia seed, flax seed, granola, or bread that has oats. None of which I would eat anyway. But I thought smooth peanut butter would be fine since it’s been smoothed and heated. I am well aware of what gets stuck in intestines & I assumed they meant nuts, as in whole nuts. Again she was sarcastic and rude. I’m just trying to find something I can eat for that week before. I told her I’m not a regular McDonalds and Arby’s eating person who can eat anything, and she right away said meanly, “What is that supposed to mean?!” I said it means I don’t have lots of choices of what to eat like other people do and my diet is very limited already. I mean a hamburger at McDonalds or a steak on the grill is fine? but smooth peanut butter is going to stick around your gut? So I asked about cream of rice cereal. Then she asked someone else because she was unsure the whole time while acting sarcastic. She asked Dr. Worthington’s nurse & the nurse said, “If she is questioning it then don’t eat it”. Wow okay. I question everything I eat these days which is why my diet is so strict. I was so upset because they were so rude and uncaring. I told the front desk lady that I actually feel like cancelling because I don’t feel like I am in safe hands anymore & she immediately said in a rude voice, “That’s your prerogative”. I asked to speak to the office manager and I never got a call back. I will be cancelling even though it’s been 10 years since my last colonoscopy & my grandma died of colon cancer. But I don’t feel like I’m in good hands here, especially since the doctors nurse was part of the sarcastic cold mix. I will go out of Prescott to find my care. Again, my husband is a manager at YRMC hospital in Prescott which is part of the Dignity Group and Dr. Worthington’s practice is part of that group that states, Missi "
