Dr. Praderio's staff prevented me from going to my initial appointment that I waited months for. I walked to my appointment and arrived at the wrong office (Wellmed) that was only 3 blocks away. I was 15 minutes early! They insisted I MUST RESCHEDULE MY APPOINTMENT! They couldn't even wait 15 minutes for me to walk there. WHY SHOULD I HAVE TO WAIT MONTHS FOR AN APPOINTMENT WHEN THEY COULDN'T EVEN BE BOTHERED WITH ME! I am so angry, I will not work with a negligent, uncaring office staff!!!!!!!

Have been going for a year and getting meds but have never had any testing done or even seen the Dr.They never even bothered to get records from previous Dr. Just went off of the medication I brought in . Have always met with NP who could care less how I'm doing or listen to what I have to say. Trying to find a new provider.

Dr. Praderio seemed to be a wide and comptent doctor. I ended up seeing his PA, Papa Joe they call him. He did not ask me any questions about how I felt, it was very rushed and the most he spoke to me was concerning another psych provider in town that he said awful and seemingly slanderous comments about. I was shocked, felt he was unprofessional and he no substance in which to put a colleague down so viciously. I left. I'm actuakkwith that particular provider now, think she is wonderful
