Patient Comments (3)
Toms River, NJ |
She didn't address any of my symptoms and documented a full examination on me which included a physical examination. I timed my visit, it was exactly 4 minutes she never picked her eyes up off the desk let alone lay a finger on me for a physical examination. She was rude, dismissive and her office staff is the same.
Zephyrhills, FL |
Office rarely answers their phones anymore, always the answering service or hold. My PCP still waiting on documents requested a month ago, office insists they were sent. Requested a copy of lab results and was told I would have to wait nearly a month for a follow up appointment, they refused to provide a copy of my records to me. Dr. Papa-Rugino has zero bed side manner. I get you see these things a hundred times, but it's new to your patients. Never been in the room longer than 5 min. Avoid!!
Belmar, NJ |
Experiencing symptoms related to a chronic condition I was dx'd with many years ago and had surgery for. Took weeks to get an appointment and then they cancelled it and rescheduled it out another week. The day of my appointment she didn't even look at my MRI films or ask any questions before declaring my symptoms weren't related to my condition and referring me to several other specialists. She was curt and condescending and completely lacked compassion or knowledge of my condition. Terrible.
