Ratings for Dr. Nicole A. Palekar
Palekar didn't get back to me after our appointment. She was to review my tests that were done in the ER and send me to the surgeon. This was 6mos ago. In Feb, I went into CC Parkland crying because I was constantly sick and found she forgot about me. They FORCED her to contact me. When I saw her again, she sent me to a surgeon and didn't mention I needed a referral. I waited a month for that appointment, was rescheduled 2x and on my appt day, I was refused. No referral. I had no idea. No help!!
Had a colonoscopy and Dr. Palekar did not introduce herself prior to procedure. She removed a 20 cm polyp. I never spoke to her nor did my husband. I was told by a nurse I had to be back in 6 months and I am now high risk. I changed to a different Dr. before I left the hospital. After reading all these reviews my concern is why isn't Cleveland Clinic addressing this lack of professionalism.
Do not use Dr. Palekar. I went to her specifically for new medication for GI issue I've had for 20 years bc insurance stopped covering. She prescribed a medicine that is DISCONTINUED and then prescribed my same medicine FORGETTING I came in because it's no longer covered. She did no physical exam. She will not return calls even when I asked to specifically have her call me, not a staff member. nurses get information wrong. She was entirely incompetent.
Currently 1 of 4 stars | Nasty...Would never see again! | show details Apr 9th, 2014 I drove over 2 hours to see this doctor as a new patient. She spent just under 10 minutes with me, never did any exam on me, was very disengaged, didn't care to hear about my medical history, and treated my concerns as frivolous and non important. Then when she was asked for a prescription so I could get testing that she ordered closer to my home she was loud and obnoxious in the hallway and refused to accommodate me. Very non chalant, no compassion, and the attitude that she could care less. Horrible experience. Should've listened to the other reviews here and saw someone else. Waste of time, gas and money.
