This woman should not be in any field that deals with the public let alone medicine! She is argumentative, arrogant and dismissive. She spent more time fixing her clothes and looking down at herself then listening. I would never recommend her to anyone.
I have been going to Dr Patnana for about 14 years she is the best physician I have ever had. And I don't change too many doctors I prefer a woman doctor for my health needs. Sometimes people are having a bad day and we need to not take this against them.
Guys, Dr Patanana is a great doctor. She'll tell you what's wrong up front. I think people are misunderstanding that she is straight to the point with her being rude. She is so upfront and tells you what's wrong because she cares about you. I highly recommend this doctor.
Judgmental and extremely rude. Not interested in the feelings or overall care of a patient. If your lifestyle behaviors aren't up to her expectations, she will refuse to treat.Sent me to get a colonoscopy. After 3 weeks and no word from her, scheduled a follow-up and despite having the computer to read her own notes, she didn't understand why I went and had the colonoscopy!Don't waste any time setting up an appointment. You will NOT be happy with her ability to care.
Dr. Patnana took her time with me to figure out what was causing my issues. She was very kind and showed that she was concerned about my health and finding answers.
I really like this doctor, when I see her she takes her time with me. When I was having an issue she gave me her cell phone in case I had questions after hours. I felt like she genuinely cared.
A doctor who listens and takes time with you.
I have been to Dr. Patnana a few times, but I know who the doctor is. Since I am not a drug seeker I think I am more likely to appreciate her explanation of what is wrong, as opposed to people that think she is “terrible” because she won’t throw a handful of pills at them to shut them up. I think she is a good doctor and I know she skipped lunch one day when I was late just to get me in. That is why I think she is a good human. And her staff is exceptionally nice as well.
does not care or listen. she is the only one who knows anything, and if she doesnt believe in it (her words), she will shut you down, refuse to discuss, and will acutally cut your prescriptions to lower quantities. She said she did this to me because she didnt agree with my lifestyle choices. Uh...not her job. Dont waste your time. she will only stare at her laptop and NEVER followup!
Dr. Patnana is an extremely intelligent doctor. She thoroughly listened to my symptoms. She asked me questions in a kind manner and let me respond. She sent my prescriptions to my pharmacy before leaving the room. My only complaint is my wait time. I was still waiting for her 30 minutes after my appointment time. In her defense, I did make my appointment that day, so it’s a huge possibility they squeezed me in. But, as sick as I was feeling 45 mins was rough waiting.
The WORST physician I've ever the misfortune of seeing treated by. She must have been a brilliant student, but she has all the social skills, bedside manner and empathy of a rattlesnake. Despite the fact that it had been 6 months since my last visit, she succeeded in making me feel like a hypochondriac and a junkie. She is fond of interrupting you while you are trying to communicate symptoms. She forgets to order all of the tests on blood work. She does not post lab results to the patient portal and just has staff call you and tell you everything is normal. I guess she just assumes everyone beneath her is too stupid to interpret anything, so to hell with patient rights to their own medical information. I finally had to have the office manager mail them to me a month later. I'm far from an MD, but I ran these kind of tests myself in a hospital lab for years, and yes, I had to become a board certified medical laboratory scientist to do this job. In order to pass the board exam, we had to demonstrate we could interprete lab results almost as well as any damn doctor. I asked for minor adjustments to low dose medication that has been prescribed to me by other physicians for genuine medical problems, one of which I only need during the winter months for arthritis. You'd think I was in there demanding rock star dosages of fentanyl and Quaaludes! This doctor really ought to consider going into a different branch of medicine. I think she'd much more enjoy torturing animals in a laboratory or something. There is a reason why her office is empty of patients on a Friday afternoon in the middle of a flu epidemic. DO NOT waste your time with this creature. She is NO healer.
Very rude. Do not recommend. Just brushes off your questions or concerns!
Was treated with anxiety medication and when I said it made me nauseous she tried a different medication and then that one made me dizzy. Instead of suggesting a lower dose she said she did not know what else to do for me and maybe I should see a counselor. A later occasion I was misdiagnosed by her with a very contagious skin disease and told to see a specialist. When I tried to ask her questions she all but shoved me out of the office. When I went to the specialist was told it was a hyper allergic reaction to poison ivy and who the heck told me it was a skin disease. No doctor should have been that way off. I tried to contact the office to complain and had to leave several messages never a call back. Years later I am still without a PCP because it was such a horrible experience.
Dr. Patnana only hears what she expects to hear, not what you actually say. I described something that is not the usual for diabetes, and her response, Yes, [opposite of what I described] is normal because [reason]. That was the most egregious example, after numerous times I suspected she wasnt listening. When metformin & one other didnt work, I just got lectured about eating right & losing weight. Went to new doctor, who knew the other med can cause weight gain. Switched to new med, now losing weight.
WORST DOCTOR I HAVE EVER HAD. SHOULD HAVE HER LICENSE PULLED.
Dr Patnana is a great doctor. She is personable, thorough and goes the extra mile to care for patients after hours. The staff is very friendly. I am pleased to have Dr. Patnana as my PCP and recommend her practice highly.
Don't even want to give 1 star!! Horrible horrible bedside manner, snooty, rude. This was only my first (and last) visit. Basically ignored everything I told her. Waste of time.
Very snudy and rude!I've never had a bad experience with a doctor until this one. My experience with Dr. Patana was absolutely horrible. My first appointment with her, she was very snudy and rude. I went to her on June 14th for an annual check up and to get a refill for my prescription. She said I had to sign a medical release form to give permission for my previous doctor, I moved from Idaho, to release my medical information to show that I was prescribed this medication. I signed a form that day. A week later I called and asked if my perscription was ready and the staff said they would ask the doctor about it. I called for the next 3 days and got the same answer. They said my records were in and were waiting for Dr. Patana to review my chart and write my perscription.June 27 - I messaged Dr. Patana on the patient portal and she messaged back and said she was still waiting for my previous Dr to fax in my medical information. I called my previous doctor and they said they sent the records the day they were requested, June 14th. I drove to Dr. Patana's office and told her I'm still waiting for my perscription. She had the biggest attitude and seemed to be more concerned about being right than actually solving the problem. Here it is two weeks later and she finally writes my perscription. She was very rude and never even apologized.
THe worst doctor on earth, I've never met a rude doctor like her. Rude, arrogant, aggressive and do not care about patients. RUN AWAY, I think she has mental problem that she she needs to take care of before meeting patients. She had to follow up with me for my test results and she never did until I called back to her office and told her that my test results were sent to her few days ago, after that her nurse called me to say that Dr. Patnana said my test results were negative!! I am a biochemist and I know they were not negative and took my results to a different doctor and after a thorough exam I was diagnosed with cancer but Dr. Patnana did not care to read my test results, all she cared about was to take money during my visit!! Awful doctor, i consider this a malpractice.
