Ratings for Dr. G. JULIE Wadhavkar
Dr. Julie’s approach to thyroid management seems based solely on TSH; no T3, no T4, and she cut-off my wife’s meds referring her to a specialist rather than work to stabilize an abnormal TSH following surgery. When further testing was denied, we obtained a comprehensive thyroid assessment within 2-weeks, ordered by an Internist she hadn’t seen in 10-years. The comprehensive study revealed normal TSH levels, but T3 a little low; supplemental T3 was provided. An unnecessary referral to a specialist is one thing, but denial of care during the interim while being weaned off pain meds is inexcusable. In addition, we were dismayed to learn a previous referral has a dubious reputation among his peers, including confirmation of failure to diagnose my wife’s original condition.
This doctor is awful. Certainly don't go to her if you want to ever actually see a doctor! She passes you off to urgent care or any other specialist there is so that she doesn't ever actually have to see you! She is completely worthless and infuriating. She is an insult to the medical profession. She told me to make an appointment before she would refill my pills then had the receptionist call to say I needed to go see three different doctors for my prescription refills because she was too busy. Meanwhile, my medication has run out waiting to get into another doctor. She used to be great, now she is awful. I will be reporting her to the medical board.
Missed diagnoses with both my father and mother. These were significant as my father's thyroid problem and diabetes were going on without our knowledge or Dr. Wadhavkar's apparently. DAd and mom were both diagnosed when they wound up seeking hospital care and we left Dr. Wadhavkar's practice.
She really needs to run the practice better. It is very hard to get a same day appointment, even one within two weeks. I have been told to go to urgent care a few too many times for my liking. I should have switched earlier but I didn't. I called almost 2 weeks before surgery to get a pre-op appointment and nothing was available. No matter how good of a doctor is, if you can't see her, it just doesn't matter.
