    in Port Saint Lucie, FL |
    As a physician, I have been impressed by Dr. Palekar. She is personable and is able to diagnose the problem efficiently and present the options to treatment in a clear and concise manner.
    in Coral Springs, FL |
    Palekar didn't get back to me after our appointment. She was to review my tests that were done in the ER and send me to the surgeon. This was 6mos ago. In Feb, I went into CC Parkland crying because I was constantly sick and found she forgot about me. They FORCED her to contact me. When I saw her again, she sent me to a surgeon and didn't mention I needed a referral. I waited a month for that appointment, was rescheduled 2x and on my appt day, I was refused. No referral. I had no idea. No help!!

    This Doctor has no heart, no care for her patients. She diagnosed me with 3 different conditions (medications included) and non of them were correct. A very cold and careless doctor. DO NOT recommend.
    in fort lauderdale |
    poor bedside manner, very rushed, condescending, poor communication, rude.
