Dr Druzak is awesome!
No Rating Given
The appointment started out fine and she was very nice. However, there was discussion about a med change I was not comfortable with to the point of feeling anxious and tearful and instead of acknowledging my concerns and taking more time to answer my questions. I feel like she became abrasive and dismissive. I completely understand her stance, but feel the situation could have been handled better.

I highly recommend Dr. Druzak!

I don't remember the doctor telling me what she was about to do. And explain to me the procedure. I had had the procedure done before so I already knew what to expect but she just went ahead and did what she needed to do without explaining from what I can remember.

The doctor was excellent. At another facility the doctors were unable to place an IUD according to them due to the tilt of my uterus but Dr. Karen was able to do it with little trouble or discomfort. I'm very happy.

I had no issues or concerns, Dr. Druzak identified an issue I hadn't thought of and we discussed. I have seen her for 30 years and trust her with my life. I have sent multiple people to see her over the years.

Excellent doctor. 1st time in 28 years where I did NOT bleed for a day after the pap sample collection! Extremely impressed with Dr Druzak.

The whole reason why I came for the visit was to get refill on birth control pill to help my menstruation problems. I was given a sample. The doctor said she would refill my medicine and then she did not send any refills to my pharmacy. All I have is medication left for 3 weeks and one sample she gave me and that's it. If I was not going to get refills then I am not sure why I was getting seen for an appointment. I like the doctor, she has helped me but how can someone not refill medications after saying it will be done?

The nurse I seen was very nice, Dr Karen was not nice at all I will never see her again, she didn't answer any questions I had.
