What People Say About Dr. Adam Pacal, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
I am very cautious of providers: their display of capabilities, attentiveness, LISTENING skills. So, when I encountered Dr. Adam Pacal, some ten years ago, I could not believe that he was real, except that the great patient care he provided the very first day, has evidenced itself on each visit. Dr. Pacal SEES ME, the person; is calm, relaxing, and serious about my well-being. He never fails to knock and smile, upon entering. He is competent and caring! I recommend him highly, for your MD.

Dr. Pacal has been my primary care physician for several years. His office staff is always friendly and helpful, and his nurse Nancy is so caring and returns my calls within 24 hours. I am very grateful for Dr. Pacal, his nurses, and his staff. Thank you for all your help!

In the beginning, Dr Pacal amd his first nurse were Great! His nurse understood being beatebeaten by a gang and having Alot of injuries. I thought he might help put a get well plan together for me. That was NOT the case. His nurse was replaced by Nancy. Nancy is not the Sharpest nurses since they are employed by Sharp Hospital. I needed a detailed letter on my disabilities. They could NOT give me that. BAK surgery L5S1 Replaced. BEWARE!! Xray needed. NO letter.

I knew someone who got very sick very quickly. He went to several different doctors with no results then he went to this doctor. Finally somebody was in charge of his case who cared, had energy, and did what was possible to diagnose and treat him. It turned out that nothing could have been done. But at least there was a Doctor Who knew what he was doing, cared about the patient and communicated with the family and friends. This is a rare talented and contentious physician. San Diego is lucky

I recently moved to SD from NY about 2 years ago. Having had a wonderful primary care back home, I was afraid I wouldn't find one that compared. I immediately tried Scripps and found one there. After becoming dissatisfied with the different doctors I had there I decided to try Sharp. The level of care is a night and day difference. I was recommended to see Dr. Pacal from a friend. Let me tell you, I have found my new and permanent doctor! His demeanor is so caring and he goes above and beyond.

Dr. Pacal takes his time and really listens to what I have to say. Extremely knowledgeable and a wonderful bed side manner. He is definitely one of the top Doctor that I have ever been to.
