Ratings for Dr. Estela Diesfeld
Condecending and uncaring. Distant is a good word to describe her demeanor. She did not believe the amount of pain that I was in and did not offer a diagnosis or treatment plan. To top it all off, she took me to collections even though I have dual PPO coverage! Turns out that the office staff neglected to tell me that they only bill the primary insurance company and that I would be responsible for the balance of the bill until I submitted a claim with the secondary and got reimbursed. UNBELIEVABLE lack of customer service. I saw her once and never will again. I cannot honestly rate her knowledge, or lack thereof, as she did nothing for me except bill me for a $280 medical evaluation.
She is very caring. Spends lots of time with the patients and treats them with respect. I gave her a 2 for punctuality because of the wait time but she gives you the attention you need when you are in the office with her. I would recommend her to my family and friends. In fact I have!
Condescending attitude. Lost interest in my issues and after four years I am ready to fire her. Yes, fire her. Her nurse is a snob! Her PA is wonderful. Suggested I was not wanting to improve and began to be sarcastic about how many bumbs she had to feel all day, as if her work was a real chore. Is easily distracted during visits, as in taking phone calls.
