Patient Comments (3)
Louisville, KY |
Very long wait (one appointment wait was over 1.5 hrs) for such a minuscule visit from the doc (maybe 5 min). Defensive is a polite description of her character. Aloof also comes to mind. Went through the hassle of having an MRI but she never even looked at it. Billed 4 times (totaling over $1k) for this appointment which, by the way gave me no treatment unless you would count a 1/4" x 6" velcro strip to be used as a brace. Would NEVER recommend this doctor. Not even as revenge.

Bedside manner is extremely poor. She is not friendly, timely, or personable. She barely relays details of her medical opinion. She openly scoffs at the residents who see you prior to her.

Word of mouth is the best way to get picture of something or someone. With that in mind I just want to make sure that all know - if you need to see any doctors at Kutz and Kleinert make sure it is NOT with Michelle Palazzo - if I had only checked her healthcare ratings first, I would have never gone to her. 2 stars only. I just assumed being Kutz and Kleinert, had to be the best - WRONG ! she has horrendous bedside manners, she seemed totally disinterested.
