Albuquerque, NM |
Very skilled surgeon. Direct admin staff need improvement with returning messages promptly and at least every time! What appeared to be old blood was splattered on two walls in the exam room. Outdated examining table and furniture. Surgeon and surgery center were excellent but subpar admin, phone system, and sanitation in a clinical setting can decrease the overall experience and opinion of this practice.
Thank you very much for bringing this to our attention. New Mexico Orthopaedics strives to give the best care possible and have taken your message seriously and will be checking into the matter.

Dr. Pachelli is an experienced doctor and I have received very good care from him. The problem is that his office staff do not answer phones, or there are not enough people to answer phones. I've been left on hold many times for as long as fifteen minutes listening to constantly repeating messages, including 'wait time is two minutes' etc and 'we apologise for the wait' Because of this issue I have to recommend going to another office.

I highly reccomend Dr. Pachelli. His lifelong commitment to providing the highest level of patient care is evident as a fellowship trained surgeon he closely follows the latest peer reviewed research to help patients understand their diagnosis and enable them to make the best decision about their treatment options.
