Ratings for Dr. Lillian E. Nazario
I quit 2 doctors prior to Dr Nazario. I am picky about punctuality, attentiveness, professionalism. Dr N is all of these things. She spent an hour with me last visit for physical, labs, X-ray and more. I felt I got great care. And she is a very nice, caring woman.
Nazario has no bedside manners. I waited 12 wks. W/serious health issues expressed the urgency and got a cancellation call at 4:56pm the day before my apt. certainly, calling to cancel my appointment the day before had to b a mistake. I went at 8:30am on my appointment (9am). 10 minutes later after check in a clerk comes out to tell me that my appointment was canceled. I'd already changed meetings, took morning off work & I was in urgent need to see her, was she aware? Yes she was. Office Mngr.realized time was slotted I said I was not expecting her to have a diagnosis at first glance, but that she needed to hear my symptoms & I would come back some other time. He had no argument.30 minutes later came back she said no -re-schedule. Total lack of humanity. No even face to face-on a scheduled appointment paper won’t tell a diagnosis. Nurses search for records after the patient signs a release. I was glad to do the legwork and wasted 12 weeks zero regard to my health and to my time
I saw Dr. Nazario for the first time Spring 2010 and I am glad I did. At a routine physical, I talked to her about a knot I felt in my stomach area. Right away she told me it felt like a mass. She had me get an ultra sound and cat scan right away. The knot in my stomach turned out to be 10 lb mass that was surgically removed a few weeks later. Per the surgeon, due to size the mass had been sitting for over 1 yr. Something my previous doctor did not pay attention too!
I used to see this doctor for years growing up, until I went to college. When I came back and learned a little I decided that I need to get involved in my care...Dr. N. didn't like that. She REFUSED to give me a referral to a Gyno!!!! Even though I have had abnormal paps in the past. She is only good for handing out antidepressants or antibiotics...if your really sick...RUN AWAY and do your research! She will also make you wait for at least an hour to 1.5 hours in the exam room without apology. Totally unacceptable. My time is as valuable as hers! I feel like she makes up her mind after about 3 minutes, without listening to you and ALL your symptoms..so you can't get an accurate diagnosis at all. Pass on her.
I've been a patient for more than 15 years and am always impressed by how knowledgeable she is She really stays up to date with the current health information and the latest recommendations. She's proven to be a great diagnostician and doesn't subject you to tests unnecessarily. She also seems to understand me as a person and makes recommendation that reflect her understanding. Plus her office is unbelievably efficient.
Dr. Nazario is a brilliant, kind, patient doctor. She was there at the delivery of my twin boys and cared for them until we moved away when they were 3. She was always knowledgeable and kind, the babies were never uncomfortable and enjoyed their visits. I would recommend her to everyone.
I have had Dr. Nazario since I was about 12... I am now 29. Through the years, I can probably count on one hand the number of times I have actually seen Dr. Nazario. She is always too busy to see me and I always get stuck with one of her nurses, and her nurses are not very bright. A couple of years ago, I complained of an uncomfortable pain in my side and felt a growth and she said, "Oh, its nothing to worry about, we are all born with weird growths and nodules." Well, that growth turned out to be 2 grapefruit-sized liver masses which required immediate and major surgery, which drastically changed my life. Another doctor found the masses. Dr. Nazario never came to see me in the hospital or ever checked up on me. The only reason I have stayed with her for so long is because she is my mom's doctor, but she has been unhappy with her too. I will definitely be looking for a new doctor, and hope that my mom follows.
Used her as a doctor for many years, then when I went to her because I couldn't breath, she referred me to a pulmonary doctor, he found a growth on my thyroid, she never came to see me in the hospital but 1 time. Acted like she was embarrased to see me anymore since she did not catch the growth. I told her it was not her fault, she still made it unconfortable to see her for anything else, and would make it hard to make appointments, finally had to leave to get better care.
