She is very efficient, but sometimes very quick and so wasn't sure if I was ready to go.

Dr. Druzak entered the room with 2 IUDs that I had not requested for the appointment based on the medical advice of Dr.... She tried to give me a lower dosage even after me explaining to her why Dr. ... and I decided the higher dosage would be best. She then said she did not want to remove the IUD the following month if I did not like the higher dosage which was a huge red flag- each patient is entitled to do what ever is best for their body. She persistently asked if I wanted a certain vaccine multiple times and never listened to my responses. Dr. Druzak did not explain whatsoever any portion of the procedure she was doing to me and just began sticking things into my body and was struggling to place the IUD. At the end, she only gave me an example of what the threads felt like but did not tell me in any way shape, or form how to check for proper placement of the IUD. Overall, I will not be returning to Dr. Druzak.
