Dr Pathak has been my doctor for many years. Was a big locating s pinch nerve in my neck and with a referral Dr Molitor surgery gave me my life back. Fast forward 4 yrs a CT identified to a serious condition and Dr Pathak and UC Davis got on it very fast. I was diagnosed with MS., Dr Pathak and the UC Davis will work closely together. Dr Pathak is a very kind, yet sharp Dr. I feel very blessed to call him my Doctor. Dr Pathak and staff wasted no time getting me the care and support I needed.

I was EXTREMELY disappointed with this man. I have been suffering from an injury for OVER A YEAR AND A HALF. I come to his office because my therapists are concerned about a clonus they notice I have. Dr. Pathak noticed it too, but after ONE TEST that wasn't even wholly of my nervous system he said its just soft tissue damage and will go away later. DISMISSED all of my concerns and issues, unwilling to hear me out. I would NEVER recommend him to ANYONE. Go with someone else if you want to heal.

Was in the office for no more than 5 minutes when he walked out to take a personal phone call. Did not even say anything to me. I sat stunned because I've waited months for this appointment due to moving and new insurance. I walked out to tell the front desk and she didn't even know what to say so I just said that I will find a new doctor. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL!

Horrible experience with this most non-empathic Doctor. He is rude and uncaring and basically an idiot, for lack of words I can't use here on this site. I feel so sorry for patients that have to go to this yukky man, Placerville only has one Neurologist and unfortunately it's this "woman hating" man, and yes, his ethnicity tell me this even if I hadn't experienced it for myself. He would not let me talk or explain my symptoms, and kept coughing and coughing everywhere without covering his mouth!

I had a good experience with Dr. Pathak. He listened carefully to my symptoms, reviewed my medical reports and told me kindly something I didn't want to hear. He answered all my questions and addressed my concerns.

Dr Pathak treated me during a 6 day hospital stay. His care was excellent and he is a very compassionate good doctor.

If you're looking for smiling dummy, he's right for you. Wrong diagnosis and useless medicine with adverse effect are given with such a great overconfidence that you start to believe you really have this nonsense and need to treat it his way. Bottom line, nothing but a great smile.
in Cameron Park, CA |
Very knowledgeable and helpful and diligent in figuring out my diagnosis. Really looked at records from other docs, he did Test after test, nerve conduction studies, mri's and came to a diagnosis. He prescribed 2 medications that I had a bad reaction to and I called to let him know as soon as I realized I was having a Neg reaction and he IMMEDIATELY worked with me to find a better medication and now I'm on a Med rehoming that's working great and I feel great! He listened and worked WITH me.

OK but not exceptional.
in Placerville, CA |
He did not probe into the issues I was experiencing (a spot in my vision). My ophthalmologist sent me to him because he felt I should have a cat-scan. Dr. Pathak didn't even give the issue much thought. He did not order the scan. I found his behavior to be odd as well.
