Dr. Susan V. Areeckal's Ratings
I visited Dr Areeckal three times over the last year - each time complaining of extreme fatigue and shortness of breath. Each time I was told to excercise and lose weight. When she went on Maternity leave I got a chance to see an NP. When the NP walked into the exam room the NP saw IMMEDIATELY that something was very wrong with my color. The NP checked my chart and saw that my HGB was 6 and my CBC was 25 - I was half dead from anemia. The NP started me on high doses of iron right away. One month later all my symptoms disappeared. It doesn't take House M.D. to diagnose anemia. Scarey.
Very arrogant doctor with an atrocious bedside manner. Staff would be rated higher but seem to fear the doctor. Doctor acts likes control freak and does not seem interested in the patient's well being. When an error SHE made innocently was brought to her attention, she was very defensive and then became irate. Left examining room during visit and did not return, angry over non compliance with an unimportant, non-medical issue (joining their website) and never addressed the medical issues at hand. Scolding and assuming. I was not impressed with the first visit , gave her another chance and it was worse. I was very disappointed as I wanted it to work out but found her to be very rude and would not listen to me, downplaying my concerns and bullying me into getting her way --- very strange and weird experience, have never been treated that way by anyone, much less a medical person.
Dr. Areeckal, saved my life. Before she became my pcp I had high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Since she has been treating me my blood pressure and cholesterol has been normal and I have lost weight. She and her pa our amazing. They respond to mycare immediately on any concerns. I'm am so grateful for dr. Areeckal and that she is my primary physician.
There is certainly a reason why you can get into this doctors office so easy and same day. The staff including the PA and Doctor have zero personality. They have no sense of humor and are very uptight! They make assumptions without having all the information. They feel other doctors decisions are not valid if they aren't like their own. The front office personal need to have a better idea of what type of patients their office caters too and direct the ones they can't help to some other provider who could. Very disappointed. If you want a doctor that is down to earth and friendly , this is not the place to go.
The staff ignores you when you come in because they are always on the phone. When they get off, 5 minutes later, they acknowledge you. Being in a wheelchair was very upsetting since I had to knock on the door many times to get into the office. I was told to use my cellphone and call them from the hall and not to know on the door. How sad to be given orders when you're disabled and asked why I can't open the door myself and how do I do things at home then. Rude and uncaring to even to ask such questions out in the open. She kept telling me there's nothing wrong with me while I sat there in tears with excrutiating pain. Told her staff that I'll never go there again to be treated that way.
