Ratings for Dr. Paula Rackoff
Last summer I developed a pain in my left elbow and my left wrist, so much so that pulling open my shirt bureau drawer was painful. I hoped it would go away, but it didn't. Dr. Rackoff looked at it and after asking a series of questions, we figured out that I developed tendonitis by carrying around more in my briefcase starting a few months before the summer (or maybe because I'm getting older and just can't carry what I use to). I'm without pain now. I'm writing this, because Dr. Rackoff didn't want to prescribe an anti-inflamment or anything else that wasn't needed. She really thought through the problem. Thank you, Dr. Rackoff.
I was recommended to see Dr. Rackoff after getting some abnormal blood test results, when I went to her I didn't have any symptoms or any real problems. She told me that I probably was among the 5% of people who just have irregular results, well it turns out I'm not. She gave me a call a week later and told me that I have abnormal results and is sending me a prescription, but she doesn't disclose what the problem is, I have to admit I was in shock and didn't even think to ask. After I calmed down I sent her an email asking what my diagnosis is and what the prescription is for, she sent me back less than a one sentence email that he didn't even end using a period. I called her office the next day requesting more information and when she called me back she acted like me asking her the name of my diagnosis was a huge problem, she made it seem like I was wasting her time and overall she was unhelpful. I do not recommend going to her, if you can find anyone else go to them!
I have seen dr. 2 times since 2014, I went to her, because her experience, but I was somewhat disappointed, the first visit, I waited more 30 mins, short as my appointment less than 10 mins, but she spend more than 5 mins on the phone, I thought was rude, instead to find out my med background, she could not give me any suggestion, second time I went, I have to give her my suggestion to have some test done. Call back was not great experience, I sent email to her, never got reply... I am going to see her again; if this time is bad, I will change dr. ... too bad I really wish I find a good dr. ...
Excellent in every category. Very professional and the most effective Rheumatologist I experienced since developing certain pain over the past decade. I plan to follow Dr Rackoff wherever she goes. As far as any waiting time, it should be expected as great doctors will fit emergency appointments into their schedule. This benefits all patients eventually.
