Cumming, GA |
Dr. Nayak's office made me wait for more than an hour for my appointment. She spent less than 10 minutes with me and attempted to prescribe medication without any tests or diagnosis. The office also tried to charge almost $500 for a new patient fee even though I am not a new patient. No other pulmonary physician in my area charges this fee. Beware of undisclosed fees with this doctor. They are now threatening to send my account to collections.

I will not recommend this doctor to my worst enemy.

I'm sure she was taught to be a gifted MD, obviously brilliant and skilled. Most obvious to me was her most precious gift of her strength of hope and courage that she shares from her heart. This not learned, only to be exchanged in spiritual truth. Although she is way to humble to accept the title of hero, she will always be that special to me and my family. Saved my life. Lung cancer. Limited space doesn't allow for whole story. http://www.vitals.com/doctors/Dr_Usha_Nayak/reviews#ixzz4cyXQVV1

Miscommunication between this doctor and her night nurse almost cost my husband his life. Please take notes of all medications and also what she's telling you because there is no sense of responsibility at all, not to mention that she walked in the very next day pretending it was not her fault. Keep in mind that medical errors is the number 3 cause of death here in the United States.

So far, she is the only doctor to have heard of the research hospital I went to (#1 in the USA) and the condition they diagnosed me with. All other doctors have treated me like I made the whole thing up, even after seeing the report. I was very pleasantly surprised to see her eyes light up and the gears turning in her head when she heard the name of the syndrome (admittedly it is extremely rare.) So, I'm excited to work with this doctor and finally have hope for the future.
