Ratings for Dr. Erushka Naiker
Ive seen her for the last 9yrs, & over time have found her less helpful. I think she has "patient fatigue" with me. I am suffering from a chronic, as yet undiagnosed illness. I think because she has run out of possible answers, I make her uncomfortable when I come. I had pain, & she didn't even ask me to lie down to feel where the pain was. I feel she's always trying to brush my concerns off as benign or anxiety, rather than coming from an investigative perspective. You really have to push to get the care you want, & beware of her minimizing your concerns. The last time I saw her I waited 40 mins for my appt, & when she finally came, I could tell she was just anxious to get to the next patient. I told her I still had some questions, but she was standing by the door with her hand on the doorknob, & said she had to get to her next patient. I think the office overbooks her or doesn't book enough time for each patient. (I was in there about 5 minutes before she was trying to leave). I can understand she is overworked, but there's no point of having an appointment if she isn't going to be fully present & attentive. I am suffering severely with my health, & I need answers. I feel I have to look elsewhere in my search for answers, because it seems she's washed her hands of the case.
As a fellow healthcare provider, I can honestly say that she is the best, in every category, hands down. Ethical. Sensitive. Holistic. Evidence Based. Compassionate. Knowledgable. Patient. Active Listener. Thorough. Kind. Empathetic. 5/5 for everything, every time, since I started coming to her since 2010.
Dr. Naiker has been my family doctor for 5 years now. I love her care and her approach to medicine. She is almost always punctual, which is hard to find these days, and will spend the appropriate time to listen to your concerns. Her bedside manner is approachable and kind, and she is fantastic with my children. I like that she is hesitant to prescribe antibiotics, but will be very thorough to get a correct diagnosis. The only reason I give a 4 star on the staff is that the front desk could use a little more empathy. They are pleasant, accommodating and kind to deal with, but could use a touch more of warmth which is important at a front desk/on the phone.
This doctor is knowledgeable, empathetic, full of knowledge and is not afraid to tell you if you're doing something wrong, She thanks you when you find something wrong in her opionion. SHE DOES NOT EASILY GIVE OUT MEDS, and is very one to one. LOVE HER LOVE LOVE LOVE HER
I've been seeing Dr. Naiker for about 4 years now. She is very thorough and knowledgeable. She is genuinely concerned for my well being and will refer to a specialist when needed. I find the staff at the new location professional but not overly friendly.
