Dr. Govert is a patient centered Doctor, who will research until he finds a diagnosis. He never stops works ng for the patient.
Don't feel she listened to me. Spent very little time with me and even then she was on computer most of the time. Left the office with no answers. I don't think there will be a return visit
Dr. Ghazmawi is one of the best I've ever interacted with. Intelligent, concise and thorough. We hope she stays in North Carolina!
Dr. Smith was not happy with me before we meet mean the procedure room because I recommended that an attendee put in my port and not a fellow. He tried to explain that fellows do this procedure and not the attendee . I explained to him that I was high risk for infection and I had a bone marrow transplantwhich. He did not seem concerned in the least but I did. I have the right as a patient to refuse a fellow and ask for an attendee that goes for anyone else out there.
It was like having a nurse versus the normal doctor interactions. Instead of being judgemental he did everything he could to help me fight a dangerous withdrawal. He's an amazing doctor and listens intently. Wish he has a private practice.
The only reason I'd recommend dr Rao is because she recommended me to the best thyroid surgeon at Duke. For the rest she didn't seem to care much. Even after my thyroid blood levels dropped dramatically and suddenly after 1,5 yr stability, she referred me to my pcp. She is supposed to be the specialist. Switched to Raleigh Endocrine Associates.
Saw Dr. Rao for symptoms related to Hashimoto?s Thyroiditis. Told her I?m a typical subclinical Hashi?s patient. Meaning my TSH is normal, but I suffer from hypothyroid symptoms (low body temp, fatigue, dry eyes, hair loss, depression, etc.). She ended up only testing 2 thyroid values (TSH and Free T4). No T3, no reverse T3, no antibodies. My values were normal and she preemptively told me that she would not treat me if the values were within range. This practice is antiquated and unhelpful.
Front office doesn't flow smoothly. typically uses a separate person to make an apt and another to charge the Copay. Not efficient process. Dr. Rao largely won't communicate to you regarding what she would like to see. Very disappointing from a care-provider. A good Doctor listens to the individuals, calculates the needs and progresses with a plan until you meet agin. She is too soft-spoken to be effective in this manner.
He is top of the line in caring, expertise, communicating and finding solutions to heart issues.
He has done total knee replacements on each knee with great success. Highly recommend him !!!!and his PA Disne Covington is excellent too. Several of my friends went after me and agree how good he is !!
Dr. Bolognesi and his staff were very professional. The total knee replacement surgery was performed. It was very successful. Dr. Bolognesi explained in depth the total procedure and what I needed to do after the surgery. I would highly recommend him.
The best of the best. Skilled, experienced, concerned and professional in every respect!
