I have been a patient of Dr. Pema's for around 15 years. It saddens me to have to now give him such a poor review. In March he became a part of OSU. He made the decision to NOT actively inform his patients of this change in partnership. When you now call to try to get through to his office you reach OSUs central scheduling. It is a crapshoot if you can reach his staff. You do not get a callback from staff when scheduling adds a message in your chart. The insurance they accept has now changed.
I am so sorry this has happened to you. OSU was supposed to send patients letters, but somehow that never happened. If you call the office and ask specifically for my medical assistant, central scheduling is supposed to connect you through. I would appreciate if you give us another chance.
