I always have a very positive experience when I visit Dr. Druzak's office

Doctor Druzak was rude and impatient. Without listening to my concerns she was trying to conclude the conversation. When I told her about my health concern which is already happened two times, she said only when it happens third time she will look into it:(

I have been a patient of Dr. Druzak for sixteen years, starting when she shared an office with Dr. .. and Dr... I was unlucky enough to have her on call for both of my children's births and then stuck with her because she knew my history. I have finally now had enough of her - she is rude, spends as little time as possible with me, has no current knowledge of medications I am taking which may have serious side effects and always tries to convince me to get an IUD. I have never been to a doctor who has less interest in me and my health. She should not be providing guidance to student doctors. I will be switching to another provider.

The wait time was over 1 hour.

The receptionist at the office was completely overwhelmed and bogged down with phone calls. I arrived 20 minutes before my appointment and was unable to communicate with the receptionist to fill out my paperwork until the time of my appointment. The appointment itself hadn't even begun until 30 minutes after my scheduled time. The appointment itself was entirely useless. The doctor was dismissive of my concerns and provided me nothing overall. She didn't address the issue I had, she had me get bloodwork and when the results were negative she provided no additional follow up or solutions. I think cramming in so many patients is not working out for her. Some concerns warrant more than a 15-minute appointment. Aside from the untimely and unprofessional aspect of the appointment, I received a call with results from a test that I was never aware was taken and am not entirely sure even was taken at all. I will not be returning.

from the minute Karen walked in she was cold and impersonal. I felt like I was just a product on an assembly line as she was in and out of the exam room in under 5 minutes. I wouldn't have even had the time to think about questions or add information that I thought would have been beneficial to my treatment because of how closed off she was to listening to what I did manage to say. I will not return to her for care of any kind.
