What People Say About Dr. Dana Planer, DO

Very Rude, Made me feel like I was a waste of her time. A real doctor would do as much as possible to help someone in need, not treat them like a warden treats a prisoner. She must just be in it for the money, she sure isn't a doctor that cares. You're just a number.

I chose Dr. Planer based on her reviews. I believe that 5-7 years ago her mission and performance were excellent, but not now. I found her, her nurse to be friendly on the surface but sloppy, inattentive and defensive in their delivery. It took me two months to get my first appointment despite my x-rays and MRI prescription for antibiotics from Millennium Walk In prior to visit, she diagnosed me with COPD before her order for a sperimeter test for COPD results were in. The test was negative.

I agree with the previous reviewer, there is something wrong here. My experience regarding pain was different however. Dr. Planer's Nurse Practitioner Krista Russell may have been the prior reviewer problem. I know that that was my case. New to Florida, I needed a new primary care doctor primarily for my diabetes. Suffering also from chronic pain due to spinal stenosis, Dr. Planer offered me Oxycodone. When I met with Ms. Russell I found myself discharged and blacklisted by her remarks.

Dr Planer has serious problems in dealing with patients in extreme pain. After receiving only Ibuprofen for severe sciatic pain and updating her daily on my status, I finally had to go to an Emergency Clinic for proper treatment and medication. Most visits were only with nursing staff as the doctor was either to busy or absent. If you are in real pain, do not go here. We changed primary care doctors after only 1 month with her!
