What People Say About Dr. Padmini Nagaraj, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

She was unavailable, in a hospital setting. She was not communicative or in anyway sympathetic or helpful. By far one of the worst doctors I’ve ever had to endure. Prescribed meds incorrectly, ones that had to be taken with food she prescribed at bedtime on an empty stomach. Not only did it make me very ill, it did not allow the medicine to work correctly.

I was informed today by her Office Manager Sue that I was no longer a patient because the last time I was there was last April. Today is April 25th. I have been a patent since 2004. This has been an ongoing problem with her office manager both with scheduling and prescription refills, referrals to other therapists, and doctors. They don't happen. Instead of handling it with compassion, kindness and a measure of concern as one would expect when treating patients coming to a psychiatrist.

Refused to call my neurologist or psychiatarist the whole 3 1/2 weeks I was there. My doctor said she had me on some medications which were making my illness worse. Sometimes I went days where I wouldn't see any doctor which was very unusual for a psych hospital. She lied about when I could get out and made me sign papers I didn'f full understand so she could keep me longer. She is the worst doctor I have ever had in my life.
