Ratings for Dr. Louis J. Prochnicki
Dr. Prochnicki came to Georgia soon after med school. There, he delivered my first child. Then he used me in an experiment with Depo-Provera LONG before it was safe. I lost a pregnancy due to cancer it caused. The aftermath was life-long damage that included a lot of pain and suffering. By then he had high tailed it out of Georgia of course! I sure hope he got paid enough to be worth the misery he caused in my life! I'm sure he never dreamed on an internet that could help me catch up with him to tell the truth about who he is.
All I can say is wow. Even though I waited to see Dr. Prochnicki for an hour, he spent a long time with me, and listened to everything I had to say. His receptionist was so wonderful, calling me when another patient cancelled their appointment to get me in the SAME DAY. His medical assistant was amazingly caring, and made sure all of my concerns were addressed. I went to Dr. Prochnicki after a horrible experience with another doctor, and he completely restored my faith in doctors in general. He was very compassionate and caring, and finally was able to give me some kind of diagnosis after over a year of chronic pain. He has had to schedule me for a surgery to make sure the diagnosis is correct, but is the FIRST OB/GYN I have been to that has told me that my pain is related to some disorder, not that my pain is made up or that I am crazy. Dr. Prochnicki and his staff are 5 star, and I would HIGHLY recommend them. I have never been happier with a doctor or his staff.
After my first delivery a nurse told me I needed MMR shot before leaving the hospital. I asked if my doctor ordered it and she said my chart states "As needed and you need it". The next morning I got hives and anaphalaxis. I called my OB he said not to worry its a natural reaction. Still a couple weeks later he recommended cortizone. It's been five years and I continue to suffer from acute hives and swelling. With my second baby, I expressed something didn't feel right weeks before delivering. He said "your measuring right along". The night before my actual delivery date, I went to Triage with false labor. They said I was fine at 4cm & discharged. The next day my water broke - upon arrival 20mins later I measured 7cm there was no head. My baby was breached! They shot me up to stop contractions & my doctor gave me an emergency C-Section. I got a gnarly infection and had to have IND surgery. He was changing my dressing after I told him I needed meds he didn't wait & I was in SHEER AGONY!
