Ratings for Dr. Harvey F. Palitz
I don't understand all the negative comments about Dr. Palitz. I have been to so many horrible doctors and I wish I would have found Dr. Palitz years ago. I find his humor and demeanor relaxing. His years of experience and his confidence in his decisions regarding his patients are a comforting thing, not a bad one, in my opinion. I guess some people misconstrue knowing what you are doing as being arrogant. He us awesome and I will be sad when he retires.
Obnoxious, arrogant, egotistical and rather rude. I overheard him talking to a nurse and he was so condescending and inappropriate. The nurse, unlike the doctor, was professional and just listened to this jerk rant on about what sounded to me like nothing. I am surprised they keep this guy who looks like he is about 80 on the hospital staff. His bedside manner is so annoying. Everything is a big joke with this guy. I, for one, am not laughing.
He's very blunt and crazy talkative but I have had the best labor experiences. He's delivered 3 of my kids and is wonderful at pain management. He does an ultrasound at each appt and never makes me feel rushed. The wait times in the office are unpredictable but that's because he doesn't miss deliveries. When I've been in labor he's quick to get to the hospital. We are done having children but so glad palitz was my doctor! The office staff is very nice also.
Love dr palitz. I told him he has to deliver all my babies. My whole family goes to him. You will not like him if you are overweight. Or if you don't take care of yourself. He tells you how it is. He cares about you now and long term that's why he's so into your weight. I wasn't overweight I didn't have a problem. I told him I wanted to deliver a week early (wth my first) he said I won't touch you unless youre showing signs that your body is ready. He scheduled me to be induced and but my water broke early. He knows what he is doing. I whole heartedly trust him with my life and my babies!
Dr. Palitz operated on me in 2006 for a prolapse. Dr Palitz performed a full hysterectomy and put my bladder back into place. It is 2014 and I still have not been able to have intercourse due to pain. It was and still is a nightmare. Stay away from this monster!
Dr. Palitz accepted me at 34 weeks. I transferred so late because I was being seen at Golden Valley and I was informed late in my pregnancy that there was a high probability that my OBGYN would not be delivering my baby. It would pretty much be whoever was on call that evening. I did not like the sound of this. I wanted to establish a relationship with a doctor for a reason. I wanted to feel completely comfortable with the doctor and not have someone I never seen before deliver my baby. When I transferred Dr. Palitz he made me feel completely comfortable as if I had been going there my entire pregnancy. When I arrived to the hospital at 1am I was already dilated to 9 cm. They called him, he raced there to deliver my baby within 15-20 mins. He also had me and my family laughing during this crazy time while I was in pain...btw I had no pain meds..and he still had us laughing. He was the BEST coach ever!! My family and I loved him!! I would NEVER go to another OBGYN!!
At the beginning Dr Palitz was awesome. I though I couldn't have found a better Dr. Then towards the end of my pregnancy he changed my due date. put me on early maternity leave and then when talking about my birth told me that he was in charge and if he wanted to induce me that's what he was going to do. that he wasn't going to let a "20 year old tell me how to do my job" "you don't know what birth is like" "I control labor not you" and then proceed to tell me to find a new Dr if i wanted a natural birth....I was 38 weeks pregnant.
I love Palitz. Hes a wonderful OB. He Delivered my daughter last year and i plan to have him deliver my next child this spring. Hes very blunt and straight to the point. Hes funny at times. Hes well educated which is always nice. No matter where you go someone has been seen or had him deliver their babies. Hes going on his third generation of delivering which is a comfort to know he knows what hes doing And amazing.
I went to another OB before I went to his office and had an awful experience there. I heard of Palitz through some of my friends and I went and will never go to any other OB again. He can come off rude, but he's just blunt and make you feel comfortable when you have questions. Never has he made me upset and he has knowledge about so much. I love that I get a sonogrom every visit.
