Patient Comments (3)
San Jose, CA |
Condescending and rude behavior. Saw her twice too many times. She told me she wasn't going to "waste her time" finding out whether a medicine I have been prescribed for years was available in a lower dose, if I did not plan to discontinue it. She did not offer an alternative, or try to find the cause of my condition. She did not care about me or how my condition affects my life. I asked for a recommendation for a new neurologist and she did not offer me advice. A terrible experience.
I am sorry that you felt this way. I was very clear with you at the appointment that I do not prescribe the type of medication that you had requested and that I did not feel comfortable prescribing it due to potential side effects and long term complications to your health and well being. Because you then were not happy with my response and were very insistent that I prescribe the medication I asked you to go to another physician.

Sonya Patel did not seem prepared for the appt. She did not review her new patient records before entering the room nor looked at them even during the appt until advised by patient midway. She was insensitive to the elderly patient, a bit rough, and impatient with asking & answering questions. She was rude on the phone with a follow-up call & doubted the patient's summary of symptoms until she witnessed first hand the physical changes of patient at the end of the appt.

Not available and hangs up on her patients
Sorry you felt this way but from my recollection you were texting me and I do not communicate with patients via text. I did not hang up but kindly requested that you stop texting me.
