Appointment felt rushed. Explained treatment options on very general terms and provided very limited information when asked for more information. Seemed confident that I would recover quickly and easily from surgery based on my age and body weight. I had to follow up with office / hospital aggressively to get surgery scheduled and get the information I needed to prepare for surgery. No information was given to me on how to arrange consult with anesthesiologist if needed before day of surgery. Scar was 2 inches bigger than I was told it would be. Had major complications from anesthesia and intubation. Recovery care was sub par and traumatizing. Was difficult to get follow up appointments, additional testing, and FMLA paperwork when requested.

Dr. Padrazik is a wonderful doctor! He is kind, he listens, he is very knowledge and calm. I have felt very safe in his care for me and my 2 babies over the past 4 years. It is stressful to be pregnant and his confidence and kindness has really helped. He delivered my baby girl via c-section during the recent COVID outbreaks. My husband and I were very worried and stressed and he and his hospital team at Mercy did an amazing job! I would highly recommend him

Dr. Padratzik is one of the increasingly rare doctors that really listens, makes you feel heard, and takes the time to thoroughly answer every question (no matter how many there are or how trivial they may seem!)—I can honestly say that I have never once felt rushed during an appointment. The other thing that, in my opinion, puts him a step above the rest, is the way he involves the patient in their own care. Some doctors will simply tell you what they intend to do and that’s the end of it—but Dr. Padratzik has always made a point of presenting information on all the various options, sharing his opinions, and then asking for my thoughts. In this specialty, where you’re dealing with such personal decisions as when to start a family, trying to get pregnant, how to deal with infertility, etc., that is truly an invaluable quality.

Dr. P is awesome! My husband and I moved to St. Louis a year ago and had no clue who to choose as an OB. So many people recommended Dr. Padratzik and I did some research before I made a decision. He truly cares about you and will make sure everything goes well through your pregnancy journey. He is very intelligent & helpful. I always left my appointments with every question answered. We had an amazing birth experience because of him. All I can say is my husband and I are grateful we found him.

I was recommended to him by a family friend about 4 or more years ago. I was having fertility issues. I was nervous about a male doctor and so was my husband but after that first appointment that fear was no longer there. He explained everything and said "we are going to figure this out!" So comforting to hear that!! And now I am on my third baby!! I recommend him to everyone I come across because he Is such a phenomanol doctor!! Truly the best doctor i have ever had!!!
