Me and my husband have being going to Dr Joe Pachorek for 15 years. He is the best he takes time with you and go out of his way to make sure you are ok. he call you to make sure everything is going well he treats you like Family he is the BEST. I drive all the way from Canyon Country.
Joe was our GP for about 20 years while we were in California. He is as close as you could hope to find to a physician with the old fashioned caring attitude toward his patients.My wife and I consider him a friend and wish we were closer than Colorado for our personal care.
Dr Pachorek has been my Dr for 22 years. He is a fine pysician,a good person,and very caring and personable. He has personally made a difference in my life, because he has insight and the initiative needed to heal difficult problems (when all my specialists couldn't). I am so grateful for this. I think he is terrific.
I went to him on a friend's recommendation -- he has a rep as an extremely intelligent doctor. Unfortunately, I found him to be disinterested and cocky, and obviously in a rush to get on with his day. He was quick to write me a very expensive prescription that my current PCP saw as inappropriate and aggressive. Also, I had a terrible experience with his answering service (hence the "1" for staff). Never again!
Good and knowledgeable doctor. i have been with him for more than 20 years. approachable and fun to talk to. never rush you out of the office even he is very busy. helpful if you need referral. easy to get appointment with other doctors in the office but not him though. overall, i like him as my doctor.
Dr. Pachorek has an excellent reputation re diagnosis...knows his stuff. However, I found him rather patronizing. I know my genetic condition, am well versed on labs, etc. I sought a response to a question and he brushed it off with an attitude of "I'm the doctor, let me worry." My husband has had years of good relationship and treatment with Pachorek. Maybe my questioning his response, and being a confident, mature woman, put him on the defensive. I moved to a another internist and am extremely pleased.
