Dr Attalla may be not a bad doctor, but she doesn't care about patients at all. If she let's herself always be late and patients have to wait one hour the least, this tells that she doesn't care. Usually sick people come to see the doctor, but when they sit in the waiting room for an hour and then 5-10 minutes with the dr, this is not very good for their well being.
It's a busy clinic. That said, I've never found the staff rude. Dr Attalla is a wonderful, caring, smart doctor with a great sense of humour and real empathy. She and I work together as a team to determine the best strategy to both treat issues and prevent future problems. I have seen many doctor's over the years and Dr. Attalla is a rare gem. Finally, because she's in such a good practice, if unavailable personally another MD can step in. For me, Dr. Attalla is my first string health goalie and Dr. Morningstar is a great back-up. Win - win!!
SHe is not puntual for sure. She is always behind schedule. My wife is 4 months pregnant. She went to see her by appointment and she came back after two hours. She is otherwise good docto but have no respect for the patient's time. Even her reception staff don't aware when she will be in for her appointments.
Dr.Attalla, was running over ONE HOUR late for an appointement I had booked for my sick 16month old. By the time we go in to see her, she rushed me in my explanation, interrupted me and proceded to examine my child in a very rush rush manner. Then when he refused to open his mouth to have his throat checked, she huffed impatiently and told him to stop being a little cry baby and to hurry up because she was running late. this lack of bedside manner and impatient behavior towards the people who waited over ONE HOUR for their scheduled appointement is unacceptable. Don't blame a 16 month old for your short comings. A gentler more patient approach might be something to consider. i Would not reccommend her
I have been seeing Dr Attalla for years and she has guided me through two cancer diagnosis. She is caring and compassionate and spends time answering your questions. She is always behind schedule though and the front desk staff are horrible. The office manager is their saving grace as trying to speak to the receptionist is impossible without snappy remarks.
i know Dr Attalla for a while now she is the most caring doctor i have seen, always goes out of her way to help, takes her time to listen to my complains & takes them very seriously. she will not give up trying to help & will discuss treatment options in details.
The first day I met her I liked her personality. She has a big heart and cares. Unfortunately she is always in a hurry to wrap up or try and cancel appointments in the afternoon because of promises to meet her girls after work. Why make appointments in the afternoon if you can't commit? I also was offended once when she did a pap smear for me, and it really hurt alot. She told me to suck it up and that I wasn't the only person that had to do them. That hurt even more than the pap. It is worth mentioning that the front desk is an evil inpenetrable fortress. Bertha is rude, cuts you off when you speak, and has tunnel vision. I am working on changing doctors very soon. Just have to find one that is worth transferring to.
