What People Say About Dr. Elizabeth Pernal, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I HAVE NEVER MET DR. PERNAL. I CALLED TO SCHEDULE AN APPT AS A NEW PATIENT. AFTER SPEAKING WITH DONNA, I IMMEDIATELY TOLD HER TO CANCEL MY APPT. SHE WAS VERY RUDE. THE FIRST IMPRESSION MEANS ALOT, DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU ARE THE DR. OR THE OFFICE STAFF. KINDNESS GOES A LONG WAY. I WORK IN HEALTHCARE, AND ALTHOUGH A PATIENT DOES NOT WANT TO COME TO THE HOSPITAL, SHOWING COMPASSION & KINDNESS MEANS A LOT TO THEM. DR. PERNAL SHOULD DO A WORKSHOP ON HOW TO TREAT PATIENTS.

I didn’t even get the opportunity to meet Dr. Pernal, but I believe your staff is a reflection of you and let me just say the staff answering the phones are completely ignorant. I simply tried to make an appointment and in return got ignorance and sass. There is no reason to treat people in such a way, and if you lack people/communication skills then you shouldn’t be the one answering phones period. I refuse to be treated such a way. If your treated like that over the phone imagine in person.

I've been a patient of Dr. Pernal's for 18 years. I've been through a lot with her & love her as a Doctor and a person. However, her front desk receptionist is extremely rude. She screens her calls, which is extremely unprofessional!! I want to talk to my Doctor, not sharing personal information with some receptionist! I once called to schedule an appointment for my daughter to have a test done. She asked my daughters age & told me my insurance won't cover it because she's too young.

I have been a patient of Dr. Pernal for many years. She delivered my first two children. She is a very nice doctor but her secretary is not. She keep cutting me off and was very cold towards me. After asking her several times to let me finish my sentence, she called me rude! Then she put me on hold. When she took me off of hold l. She acted as if nothing had happened. I tried to recap the situation. She then stated "Well ok now we're over that". When asked how to complain. I was told I couldn't.

I don't know what has happened to this office.... the new girl at the front desk is awful! She is consistently rude and Unaccommodating! I don't know what happened to that last receptionist, but they should have kept her! She was awesome! On top of the rude front desk, the nurse was in a mood and the doctor couldn't get out of my room fast enough! This office has gone down hill and it's disappointing to say the least??

Dr. P is great as is her nurse, however her front office receptionist is sullen and unfriendly to the point of rudeness, on a consistent basis, very unpleasant.
