Ratings for Dr. Patricia M. Marroquin
I scheduled my first appoinment with Dr Marroquin for a fertility consultation, but we found out that I was pregnant!!! Sadly we couldn't finish the pregnancy and I ended up having a miscarriage :( I was scheduled for a d&c which was canceled by the Dr. And I ended up having a natural miscarriage at home' :( I only received a phone call from the nurse without any indications for my situation .Overall not a good experience, I ended up in the emergency room with heavy bleeding and without any response from her Medical team... Now looking forward to find another doctor to helps us finish this sad situation and continue to prepare us for a new pregnancy. I don't recommend Dr Marroquin.
I scheduled an induction for my first child with Dr. Marroquin. She came in first that night to make sure I was doing okay and to explain the process. She then came in the next day and to my surprise my daughter was turned upside down and backwards, she also had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck THREE times. Dr. Marroquin did not panic, she took control of all the nurses and the situation and was able to get my daughter out quickly and safely. For the rest of the time I was at the hospital I had multiple nurses tell me my daughter was a "miracle baby", and that I was extremely lucky I had a doctor that knew what she was doing. I am now pregnant with my second child and I could not imagine going to anyone else!!!
It was my first appointment with Dr. Marroquin and I scheduled it as she specializes in infertility and we had been trying to conceive for almost a year. I had to wait several weeks before I could get an appointment as a new patient and in that time, I conceived! So I went in for a different purpose than originally scheduled. I brought my husband as we are both pretty clueless as this is our first pregnancy. Well he tells me that before they brought him back, they were gossiping about me at the receptionist desk! Just chatting away about my medical condition and "why" I would even come for an appointment now! It's too early for a true first prenatal appointment. I had no idea! I figured I had an appointment that I waited weeks for and I wanted to see if I had a connection with the doctor. I was appalled that they would be discussing my confidential medical information at the front desk for the entire waiting room to hear! Needless to say, I will NOT returning to Dr. Marroquin!
My experience with this doctor was disasterous. She was not willing to communicate with me about my pregnancy at the most crucial time. I had numerous questions that required answers but my questions went unanswered because my doctor, for whatever reason, was not available when I needed to discuss health related matters concerning myself or my child. In short, I did not feel that my life or my family was a professional priority for this doctor.
Just another "number"...no personal attention what so ever...Went in for an issue I was having, she prescribed me a drug, it worked for two weeks, then the problem came back...She didn't even try to figure out what the problem was in the first place, was quick to prescribe anything to get me out of the office. I didn't see a smile on her face one time, she didn't seem she enjoyed her profession at all, and being a new patient that really showed me what I would be getting into if I decided to have her as "my doctor". I moved on and found a caring, knowledgable, patient doctor who enjoys getting to know their patients and the office staff is friendly as well.
The doctor's office is very late or non existent in getting back to you when you leave a message. It is extremely difficult to reach the doctor or nurse by phone. They do not call you back promptly sometimes not at all. I was very unsatisfied with their helpfulness and punctuality.
