What People Say About Dr. David Packey, MD

Worst office management ever. Had an appointment for 5:25 pm...tried calling the day before with no response, finally got through at 10:00 am the day of the appointment to cancel. Was sent a $75 missed apt fee! Called the office and the billing person became argumentative and questioned my integrity. I DO NOT RECOMMEND. Instead of me rescheduling I will search elsewhere with them losing out on potentially tens of thousand of dollars.

I cannot say enough. I was referred from a different doctor in the area that uses Dr. P as a family neuro. I was so pleased with how long he took with me, how many notes he took, and how he listened. I have been dealing with an ongoing, odd issue that nobody has fully taken the time to listen to. I truly feel he listened and is willing to help. I left feeling better about my situation. Time spent, notes taken, viewing of films, and more.....are the reasons I am writing this review.

Would not recommend this doctor at all. Not only did he not examine me on a new patient exam which being to multiple neuros over my lifespan so that is par for the course he barely asked any questions. I was also amazed he was not up to date on doing nerve block injections for migraine sufferers. And his staff is appalling in regards to being caring and empathetic. Phone skills are horrendous and no one seems to care that they are in customer service.

Dr. Packet spent years misdiagnosing me and waisted years of my life. After finally getting a second opinion, I was diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury from my years as a boxer. There could have been many things I could have been doing to treat this such as cognitive therapy with a speech therapist. My new neurologist is watching for CTE whereas this Dr told me for years there was nothing wrong when I new there was even contacting other Drs behind my back with no cause. I DO NOT recommend!

During my visits over the years I have found Dr. Packey to be prompt, prepared, compassionate, attentive, listening carefully, speaking clearly, kind, pleasant and thorough. I come prepared, thus he is able to use our time with proper focus. He explains pertinent information clearly, takes time to answer related questions & focused on the reason for the visit. I find this doctor to be honest, trustworthy & knowledgeable and I'm lucky to be his patient. Staff is busy but helpful.

In January of 2017 I experienced what Dr. Packey later determined was a TIA. When I called him shortly after I experienced some double vision he told me to come to his office immediately. Upon my arrival he gave me two 325 mg aspirins and briefly examined me. He ordered a CAT scan for the following morning and another with a dye. The next day he went over the results which thankfully showed no damage. He speculated that it just might have been a very small substance flowing in my bloodstream.

I can't write an experience with the Dr because this office requires a referral for ALL patients. My father, who is a WWII vet was denied an appointment because he didn't have a referral. He is on Medicare, which does NOT REQUIRE REFERRALS! Lindsey said that "He will not be able to see a Dr. here" Terrible office and practice.

I took my mom who’s 89 to her appointment and it was a great experience. The entire staff was very friendly and professional. Dr. Packey has a wonderful bedside manner and took his time explaining everything to my mom and I. He is very patient and kind and I would highly recommend him to everyone.

I was referred to Dr. Packey for severe headaches. I had seen many other doctors (neurologists, PCP's, dentists, TMJ specialists, etc.) over the past 4 1/2 years. Dr. Packey's unwavering attention to my concerns and symptoms have put me at ease in knowing that my health is his first priority. He continually cares about my comfort, looking to resolve my pain issues. His staff is excellent, always understanding that I'm not at my best when I do come in. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I went to see Dr. Packey for a second opinion on a neurological problem. Aside from finding Dr. Packey very personable and very competent, I was surprised that he discovered something in my MRI which had been missed by other doctors. I was grateful that he was able to address this additional issue, as well as what I originally went to see him for. I appreciate that Dr. Packey took the time to listen to me and answer my questions. His explanations were clear and understandable.

I have been a patient of Dr. Packey's for the past 4 years. He is very thorough and explains everything in terms you can understand. If I have further questions he will always take as much time as needed until I understand and I am satisfied. One of my key reasons for seeing Dr. Packey is that he is not a physician that will rush you through your appointment time. His knowledge and love of his profession is evident when you speak with him. I highly recommend Dr. Packey.

I was referred to Dr. Packey from my primary care physician. His office called me within 2 days and was scheduled the following week. Dr. Packeys staff was pleasant and attentive to my needs. Dr. Packey took his time and truly listened to my issues. I did not feel rushed like many other doctors. He set a plan and I am very happy with him. I would recommend him to my family and friends.

This doctor is 240 lbs at the very least, he himself is not in very good health. Nor does he care about his patients. I just recently got my medical records and all he wrote on there was HIS perception of the issue and didn't include multiple things I said only things to make me look like the bad guy. He is very deceptive and does NOT care about his patients health. Its now a year later since I've been to multiple other doctors and not one doctor has helped me. they are all crooks.

Do NOT attempt telephone contact with this office if you have any critical needs beyond scheduling a regular office visit if you are an established patient. The staff is non-responsive, surly to the point of being rude when pressed, and completely isolate the doctor from his patients. Calls are not returned in a timely manner if at all. The stock answer to someone calling for assistance is "schedule an office visit". Nice, knowledgeable doctor if he's in front of you, not responsive otherwise.

You would think a doctor would understand a parent that has a special needs child would have to cancel and reschedule. Things come up beyond their control. Medicine isn't about helping people anymore. It's about filling up their schedules and money. Thank you for not helping and not understanding.
