In three years Dr. Tottori has never, ever found the cause of my symptoms or offered a valid solution for them. Today he freaked out on me because I mentioned nasal spray. After waiting for him in the exam room for an hour he finally came in with another doctor with the intention of running me out of there. He began interrogating me about nasal spray. Didn't mention anything about my allergies, asthma, meds, nothing - just nasal spray.

He basically forced me to leave being very confrontational and having his buddy there for back-up! What kind of allergy doctor DOES that? C - R - A - Z - Y ! ! ! I left there feeling very angry because I was treated so badly. I plan to file a formal complaint.

Of course the nurse asks what you are there for and how you are presently treating it. I had mentioned something to the nurse about having used nasal spray. I guess that's all the doctor needed to hear, because when he finally did come in (I think he was waiting for me to just leave) he just seemed to want to be very rude, arrogant, and argumentative. What a goof! I was there with legitimate allergy, sinus, and nighttime asthma issues seeking a solution and relief, but he insisted that nasal spray was to blame for all of my ailments. He just kept saying "you're screwed, you're screwed" and "you're wasting your time coming here". I was trying to tell him that I just moved to a new place and I have been barely able to function for the past few days. I wanted to talk to him about immunotherapy or shots..something that might help with my allergies. He just cut me off and said "No, you're problem is the nasal spray." That is such bullshit!!! I didn't start going there because I had been using nasal spray, but because I had sinus troubles. I had only begun to use it after running out of Rx and realizing that it worked much better. It's not like I didn't ever give other remedies a chance either. I have tried everything out there to find relief. That's why I went to the doctor!!! And all he could tell me is that my problem is the nasal spray? I have not used nasal spray for long periods of time on the doctors advice giving other remedies every chance, but nothing offered significant relief. That's why I went to the allergy doctor, to find a solution. The only thing they ever did was give me an Rx for Allegra D and Nasonex. That's about it. According to them I guess those two things cure allergies as long as you don't ever use nasal spray. Cuz if you do...you're screwed! Don't waste your time with this clown! Find yourself a REAL doctor who actually spends time with patients to find out what's wrong and find the cure, not just treat the symtoms!!! As other have suggested on 'insider pages' about him..I too tend to agree that he must get some sort of kickbacks from the drug companies for writing so many Rx's of their product. I guess there is no money in cures, only treating symtoms. Funny thing is I am still trying to figure out why he did what he did. My thought is that as a cash patient, they only ever charged me twenty bucks for a visit. Come to think of it, I was the only cash patient on their roster that day. With an overload of patients, I guess it would make sense to only keep the ones that you can gouge like crazy. And I'm sure that that's really the only way the drug companies can track how much of a bonus he gets. Wow, don't doctors take some sort of oath or something? Totally unethical! Yes, QUACK, you wasted my time! You have no morals and NO character. And if I ever get the pleasure of making you as uncomfortable as you did me, I will oblige. You know what they say about karma...

My experience

AUTHOR: Ryan - (U.S.A.)

Your original report doesn't surprise me at all.  Dr. Tottori does come across as an arrogant person.  His wait times are outrageous, his offices are dingy, and the wait room is packed.  You see his staff congregating and chatting with each other.  The front office is unorganized and each of my three visits to his office have led to mischeduled appointments.  If you talk to anyone in the front office, you can immediately tell that there is chaos going on back there.  This all falls on the responsibility of the doctor.    However, none of these things matter in the grand scheme of treatment if the doctor can help you with your allergies.  My 5-year old son has severe allergy induced asthma and all the doctor wants to do is prescribe him with Singular.  We've told the doctor that the Singular is causing horrible side-effects (headaches, nose bleeds, stomach aches, bad dreams, depression) but he insists that we keep him on this medication.  The medication warns about this side-effects, but if we question the doctor he gets more aggressive and tells us to "keep him on it, keep him on it, keep him on it."  We gave up and started looking for a new doctor.  He has a lot of relationships here in town with family practices, so the medical community refers this guy to the max.  I wish people would know more about his tendencies before going to see him.

Wow, where do I start what an attack! Dr. Tottori is an amazing doctor with a great heart.
He started in pediatrics and that should tell you something!

If he was in this for the money he would be in plastic surgery or some field along those lines. Trust me doctors do not make what you think they make, if you only knew how much over head they have.

Now to address the drug companies giving him "kick backs" I can tell you I have seen Dr. Tottori send drug rep.'s away--with out talking to them!

He is very passionate about medicane and I have personally learned a lot from him. He would stay after (time he could be at home with his family) to teach his staff, he always went above and beyond. He even went to other doctors and taught them things about asthma and allergies.
Please DO NOT believe eerything you read, he is a great doctor.

I will tell you the only con is wait times, but that is a problem in most medical offices.

On a side note I believe in Dr.Tottori so much I plan to take my two year old son there!!
