Birmingham, AL |
Doctor seemed nice enough but getting any information or return phone call after visit from his staff or him seems nearly impossible. This in itself is enough to make me run the other direction. Absolute MESS!!!!! Been calling for weeks with no return call from nurse or staff. Normally patients seeing these types of doctors are in enough pain and discomfort without having to deal with poor followup and organization.

On two separate occasions, I had to wait over 2 hours for my appointment. The staff was not helpful in moving things along. The doctor was very nice and seemed knowledgeable, but the wait is excruciating.

Dr Poczatek diagnosed Thoracic Outlet Syndrome on our daughter who had been suffering with pain for two years. She had the surgery, and has had a wonderful improvement in her quality of life.

Office staff is completely incompetent and rude.

Considering I cannot get past the front desk to see him, I am going to give this a no go. I have traveled to St. Vincent's two different times in a month now only to be sent out the first time for not having a referral and the second time because the office staff did not write down my appoint ment at 2:15. They were rude about this to the utmost extent and told me it would be at least 2 hours. I had to get my son early from school for this and rush from my job to get here.

Very knowledgeable man. Believes what he believes and doesn't shut up long enough to listen to the patient. Very proud of himself.
