What People Say About Dr. Kenneth Dernovsek, MD

On her 1st appt., Dr. Dernovsek was unwilling to listen to anything my 19yr old daughter had to tell him about her treatment of her type 1 daibetes. He was also either unwilling or unable to download her omnipod to check her BG history. He simply gave her a prescription for test stips to test her BG twice a day. Which it took me calling an getting involved after 2 weeks of her calling and trying to get it corrected. it then took another 2 weeks and multiple calls to get the prescription sent to Xpress-scripts. The nurse is the rudest, laziest person I have ever encountered in the medical field. Save yourself the time, money and frustration and dont go to this doctor.

I really like Dr. Dernovsek. He is very smart and competent. However, his nurse is very difficult to deal with. I have similar experiences as a prior review. I dred calling the nurse and asking for refills on prescriptions because she is very rude and will not help you. She has told me before that she's too busy to call my insurance, even after my pharmacy asked the doctor's office to call my insurance. I have done her job before, just avoid contact with her, She is awful.

I truly love Dr. Dernovsek. He has been my dr. for many years. He is caring, kind and more than competent. However, he has the rudest nurse I have ever experienced. She is so rude and talks to me like I'm an idiot, which I assure you, I'm not! Why he keeps her is beyond me. I dread every appointment and phone call because of her. Please, if you've had the same experience, please leave a review. After my latest visit, I feel certain that at my next appointment, I will have to say something.

Dr. Dernovsek has been my endocrinologist for several years. He accurately diagnosed my thyroid condition and prescribed the least invasive treatment after presenting me with my options for care. I have since been free of the thyroid problem and am very satisfied with treatment. Dr. Dernovsek has never disregarded my concerns. He has a genuine, warm manner and cares about his patients and their feelings.

I am concerned about a previous review shown here about Dr. Ken. On the contrary, he has been extremely courteous, and helpful. Taking time with me and explaining my ailments and discussing proceed ures and options. I like him very much as a Doctor & person. Staff were friendly & helpful

Dr. Dernovsek did not listen to me or my concerns - instead, he belittled my symptoms and told me that I was making them up. I have seen many doctors in the past couple of years and have never met one worse then the past two experiences I have had with this doctor. Dr. Dernovsek was a waste of my time, money, and energy.
