Dr. Panait is a fantastic GI surgeon. He took the time to get to the root of my issues and give solutions to fix them.

Very positive. Thoroughly explained everything. Answered all my questions in terms I understood. Listened closely to my description of issues. Formulated a plan to help provide me relief.

Review for Sean Thomas

I saw Dr. Risken in Urgent Care at St. Francis. He diagnosed the problem and sent prescriptions to my pharmacy. When there was a problem with one and my pharmacy wasn’t handling it I called him and he took care of it. Told me when he was working the next day in case I had problems or questions.

Review for Dr. Risken

Dr. Panait is very friendly, personable and professional. He answered all of my questions and concerns. I will definitely have him perform the surgery when I decide to have it.

Rita Becchetti Apr 26 2021

Review for Dr. Panait

Very poorly run practice. The therapist does not maintain accurate business address with insurance. As a result, billing is just a nightmare. I feel like my depression and anxiety got much worse after this "therapy". Save yourself some time and find a true mental health clinician.
