What People Say About Dr. Pankaj Gore, MD

Poor follow up with patient post surgery, average waiting time ~45 minutes. Appointment was "accidentally" cancelled by his assistant without notifying patient. The same assistant also made MULTIPLE mistakes for drugs prescriptions when discharged from hospital. Labs & MRI orders never placed properly in system per discussion, patient had to call the office each time to remind them do their jobs properly. Slow comments/feedback on test results.

I had superior canal dehiscence surgery twice by Dr. Gore. Brilliant man, great personality. I can not say enough good things about him and his office. After my first surgery he came in and called me a rock star lol for some reason it was the funniest thing I had ever heard.

Multiple MRI's, Gore told me if condition worsens I should have surgery Back worsened to the point that both legs collapsed & I blew my knee requiring major surgery, yet Gore still said we shouldn't do back surgery? Last appt. I sat in a wheelchair for 74 minutes past my appt. time, only to have him speak with me for 4 minutes. I then had to wait a hour in pain, for transport to make its way back to me A "polite" complaint got me threatened to be dropped as patient by office mgmt F Grade
