Ratings for Dr. Lori Kardal
I have to agree with the last posting. We have been with Dr. Kardel for 17 yrs and LOVE HER! But staff outside of Barb are ignorant and rude. I was also charged for missing an appt... first appt ever in 17yrs. I was also VERY VERY pissed. In 17 yrs I miss 1 appt and have to pay... seriously, they should not have that much control to decide if your able to come back to see them if your sick and they won't take you cause you didn't pay your outstanding dollar amount charge for missing 1 appt in 17yrs!!
We have been with Dr Kardel for 16 yrs and she's be great! I do have to agree STRONGLY with other comments with respect to the office staff (outside of Barb), they are rude, ignorant and impatient. Further, sometimes there are emergencies that come up or life in general get in the way and I DON'T think it's fair to charge patients fees for missing appts... unless of course they have a history. After 10 yrs of NEVER missing our appts I had missed 1 it simply slipped my mind and I was charge... so so so MAD!!! truly unfair!!! But again,,,, Dr. Kardel was worth biting our lips over this money grab!
Very unhappy with the care of Dr Kardal. She treated out daughter for ADHD. I don't think she even spoke to our daughter. She looked at the forms and listened to what I had to say but not once in the two years of treatment did she even speak to my 9 year old about how she was doing or feeling or her symptoms she was having from the meds. And we had to go see out GP do deal with the side effects from the meds. She would not even look at or treat the side effects. Very disappointed.
Dr Kardal was my pediatrician for at least 10 years. She was AMAZING. She was so patient and would go to every extreme. She follows up on anything that is questionable and is very knowledgeable. I would often wait in the room for long periods of time, but it was well worth it because the amount of time she spends with you far outweighs that. She never once made me feel rushed and allowed me express every worry or concern I had, which is more than I can say for many doctors. I saw her up until the day I was 18 and finding a doctor that can replace her has proved challenging!
Dr. Kardal is the best! I feel very assured after every visit. She is kind and caring and very thorough. The front end staff however is another story even though it says on the answering machine to "be kind to our staff" it should be a two-way street.
Dr Kardal is amazing,knowledgeable and carring. We are so happy to have her as our pediatrician. She has always been there for us with my son. She is amazing and we are so lucky to have her. Her back end staff are very good too, and always happy and thoughtful. BUT the front desk staff/person... that is a different story!!!they never smile and arn't the nicest to deal with, I always say if it wasn't for Dr Kardal being as good at her job I would maybe think of changing Doctor's.
Have children who have been patients for several years but then we were dumped as they now only take seriously ill patients. Was very upsetting to be dumped like that after all this time with a letter. Since they changed management things got anal really fast at this office. Aside from that Dr Kardal was a wonderful doctor..too bad we lost her as our pediatrician.
Dr. Kardal is awesome! She's been great with our first child (she was recommended because the hospital referred us to a pediatrician). Our little girl is super healthy! Kardal's friendly, patient, competent and if you can get her has your child pediatrician...do not pass it up. Highly recommended!
