Ratings for Dr. Evguenia Marinova
I've never had a more worse experience with a doctor than her. The staff is rude and she is very condicending and unhelpful. The last time I went in with an issue she told me I would just have to "deal with it" and refused to offer me any testing or medication. She's always in a hurry and rushing me out of the door even when we're not running late. I have better luck with other doctors in urgent care than with her; it's just frustrating and dissapointing to repeatly not have someone there to help when you need it most.
When I read the reviews I can not believe this is the same doctor I am going to. My whole family sees dr Marinova, my children love her. My parents love her. She helped tremendously to my parents, when my mom was in the hospital. I rate her very high.
I am so disappointed in the treatment my family has received from this doctor. She has brushed off some quite serious health concerns with my children. They don't even bother going to her anymore as they know she will dismiss their concerns without doing a thing about it. She has prescribed medication then robotically rambles off side effects before seeing you out the door. Not getting better? She does a roulette write up of another drug to try with little to no concern as to what is going on. My daughter asked for a specific test based on symptoms and she flatly refused! She has said some seriously questionable things to my family members who see her. We are all going elsewhere. Oh, and her staff is quite possibly the worst to deal with. I feel this woman should actually be investigated.
She is frustrating to deal with. You go in for an issue, she orders tests and then they never call you back and you never see the results. But the issue doesn't go away. So you are left to assume the issue is all in your head and you suck it up until the pain gets unbearable, go in again and then the same cycle of tests and silence. Despite sustained and massive positive lifestyle changes, I am in more pain than ever and constantly exhausted but cannot ever get past the test and silence pattern unless something is broken or detached And if it is "all in my head", shouldn't there be treatment for that of some kind, or a psych specialist since this is obviously negatively impacting my life to the point where I question even continuing to live in pain?
Over time I began feeling a little unsure about Dr. Marinova's knowledge. I went to see her recently as I was worried about a rash I had developed over the course of a couple weeks...after being sick with a cold. I was concerned as I knew I had a surgery approaching shortly and wanted to make sure whatever it was could be taken care of - whether that meant leaving it alone or taking something for it. I had been doing my own research over the course of a couple weeks, had some ideas, however I really wasn't sure and of course that's why I approached her - who is the doctor. I immediately reminded her about my surgery and asked politely if she could do a skin scrap or swab just to rule out some things - so that we could be sure what it was. With my surgery approaching so soon I didn't feel like we had a lot of time to waste trying creams out...But as soon as I showed her a portion of the rash she was SO QUICK to diagnose. She wouldn't do a skin swap, and diagnosed it after I mentioned that I first thought it was ring worm. She said yes that's it! That was practically the end of my appointment. Other than her trying to convince me that she was right by looking up images and telling me that's what mine looked like...except for the fact that the images she showed me didn't look like mine. I ended up going to a walk in clinic a week later when my rash spread and changed...that doctor diagnosed me with pityriasis rosea. She was so nice, and comforting. She told me not to worry that it wasn't ring worm. She said to immediately stop taking the cream and to leave it alone. As time as gone by my rash as subsided nicely on its own.
