Patient Comments (6)

I had an excellent experience in this office. The medical assistant is very helpful, friendly and prompt. Dr.Panzer took a long time with me, listened very carefully and developed a treatment plan with me. I felt heard. I called her days later after hours with an urgent question and she answered...more

I was 18 min. late today due to unusual heavy traffic. Dr. Panzer peeked out of an exam room & told me to find another Dr. I can see how being late can throw sched. off, but there were times in her office when I patiently waiting after my appt. time. What was disturbing was the visible anger in...more

I feel I need to respond to this. This was the 4th time that you were late for your apt. I try to stay VERY MUCH on time- i feel that i cannot give you sufficient time when you come 20 mins late for a 30 mins apt. When you said it is hard for you to drive all the way to RMC , I suggested that maybe you find a different provider closer to you to facilitate your care. In regards to Erica , my MA we have worked together for 12 years and I appreciate her very much.

I am sorry you feel this way. I would like you to give us another chance. Pts actually can reach me 24 / 7 (!!!!) on my on call phone - the number is listed on my voice mail- i do not have an answering service. When patients tell Erica my assistant that they need to talk to me , i call back after hours, but not in between office visits, as I do not want to take time away from other patients. I always counsel on medication side effects. Maybe you let me know who you are and we try again.

Dr. Panzer is an amazing diagnostician. She believed in me when three other endocrinologists discounted me and told me that my thyroid problems were 'in my head'. I am a cancer survivor and owe my life to Dr. Panzer.
