I met with Dr after finding out in my checkup with the Nurse practioner that I had a prolapse. I was told that I would need to follow up the the DR. I scheduled an appt the next week to discuss options but they were confused with why I was there and had an option that I did not agree. DR told me not something to need to address right away. Gave me options and told me to research and come back with my decision. Now I have to understand and then decided , I have more questions not answers which I expected my Dr to give me. I will be sending them questions with the hope of figuring out what to do. I have gone to this DR for over 20 years and just was not satisfied this time

I felt like she was rushed a little it this time. She didn't ask me the usual questions or about my medication this time.

I feel the front desk staff are not clued in on what's going on- they do not seem trained at all in medical related work. Also, I feel that my choice of provider is interested in serving a younger fertility related patient and not an older woman seeking health maintenance care as I am. there seems to be a disconnect when tests are ordered by this provider and the communication back to me if I have questions is basically non existent.

The doctor did not clearly explain the new way to take the birth control medication. We asked her to explain and she just repeated the instructions even though they were not clear to us. We did get any written instructions about the visit to refer to. We left the office not fully understanding. Then the prescription was never called in to the pharmacy and Ii had to call the nurse the next day. it then took a nurse over 6 hours to return my call. The nurse was very helpful and friendly. She explained the instructions clearly.

I live [...] miles away from Dr. Druzak's office and Edward's hospital, but I choose to see her each year for my exam. She is professional, yet warm. Her office staff is also quite pleasant, a marked improvement since Dr. [...]s retirement.
