Ratings for Dr. Satyaprakash N. Makam
My family had the same exact experiences as those mentioned in the other replies. Over a 4 year span my dad saw many doctors, therapists, home care givers, hospital and emergency room staff. All of these medical personnel were professional and compassionate with the exception of Dr. Makim. We have taken the time and effort to send a letter to the Board of Directors of the Community Health Care organization in Northwest Indiana to make them aware of this situation. My dad has passed away, but it is our hope that other families will be spared this inappropriate and unacceptable experience.
My dad was a patient of Dr. Makam. My dad suffered a long history of health problems and as POA, Dr. makam would never return my calls or make time to schedule a family meeting to discuss health issues as my dad was very ill. I have called the office come to find out how rude and inconsiderate the staff was. Very unprofessional in every manner. I hope this doctor has whats coming to him. ASS
Dr Makam Needs to work on his bedside manner which sometime stinks I agree he can be rude and very rushed He seems to have a beter rapport with men than women and does not like to be challlenged. Todays younger modern educated, consumer oriented seniors who ask questions might pose a problem for this Alpha Male Doctor. He is often very late which is understandable for a Cardiologist but eeven when he is there, it is often a two hour wait to see him He has been very good for my hubby though and has kept him going for 22 years I am lookingfor a less busy more empthetic doctor though
I think he is fairly good, though not as good as he thinks he is; quite arrogant. There are better cardiologists around. I find the office staff almost rude. After waiting an average of 2-2 1/2 hours to see him, you are taken to an exam room, another 20 minute wait, nurse come in for a few mimutes, nurse practioner comes in after....she is very good and thorough. When he finally comes in, he is with you no longer than 3-5 minutes. My visit to him a couple weeks ago will be my last.
