Dr pantazis was very friendly, professional, caring and very very helpful! I was very pleased with her and her services. She is very knowledgeable in her fields. I would definitely recommend Dr pantazis to anyone. Respectfully, Joy Ackerman Pioneer, Ca

This office acts like they are doing people a favor by seeing them. No concern for people's problems. Treat people like they are drug addicts looking for a fix. And then they will overbill your insurance.

Karen is an extremely smart, intuitive, caring doctor that was referred by my regular md. I live with chronic pain from.an old injury, and now have Lyme disease which just compounds the pain even more. She will actually teach you how to work with it. To not let the pain scare you, and to set limits for yourself. Once you have established a Dr/patient relationship, she is very honest and helpful through your health and pain problem.

Dr. Pantazis is very good at listening. Once she got to know me, she was able to work through different medications to find what worked best for me. Thanks to her, I can now live an almost normal life. Thank you so very much.
in El Dorado Hills, CA |
Took bare minimum amount of time with me. Did not listen to my problems and was very judgmental and serious lack of empathy..
