Ratings for Dr. Prasanna Menon
Horrible doctor!! I would never recommend her. Absolutely no emotions, care and mostly unorganized and never track what is going on with patients. Always late and delay. Staff? They keep forget, don't realize the importance of care, time and treatments. The whole staff and doctor easily get irritated when you ask more than one question. In short, don't waste your 1-2yrs of time as we did!!
Extremely long wait times...more than 55 minutes!! Dr seems unprofessional, doesn't seem like she bothers to read your chart before she meets you for the visit. Also forgets the advice she has given previously and then contradicts her own advice. Would not recommend this doctor. No respect for other peoples time.
Recently I moved to CA and made sure Dr. Menon had received a fax of my medical history from my previous doctor prior to my appointment. However, Dr. Menon did not have the time to review my history as she was running an hour late and asked me to debrief her. Recently I requested a copy of my medical records including this faxed document for a second opinion in CA but doctor's office REFUSED to provide me my OWN medical information or a COPY. First the front desk denied having those faxed documents. Later they said they have it on file but cannot provide it as it was not DrMenon's own notes.According to the Privacy act of 1974, a patient is allowed to make copies of the records /information in the system. However, Dr. Menon's office said that anything provided by another doctor in spite of my release approval cannot be copied (Did they loose my medical records? - I can't confirm this and don't want to waste more time and energy on this pursuit) Professionalism - where are you?
I have been Dr. Menon's Patient for over 10 years. I have found her very caring and knowlegable doctor. I like her small office enviroment rather than big clinics that their staff changes all the time.Her office staff are very caring and try to accomodate you in any way they can.
ive seen this doctor recently and she was great, great , great!!!! the only problem was the wait time the staff was sincerly apologetic and kind. As well as knowledgable to my high risk concerns. DO SEE THIS DOCTOR BUT BE PREPARED TO WAIT!!!!!! THE STAFF DOES ADVICE YOU TO CALL BEFORE MAKING YOUR WAY TO THE OFFICE. BUT IT SURE IS WORTH IT!!!!!!!!!!!
Dr Menon is an old-school doctor with an alarmist attitude. She's used to coaching people with little or no knowledge. Ask her a couple of informed questions and she gets frazzled. In addition, her tendency to lean on the side of conservative almost made me terminate my normal pregnancy! She will narrate horror stories of other bad pregnancies to you, and I have left her office crying on two occasions. I've switched. Stay away!
Keep away from Dr. Menon. She has a bad attitude and bad communication. I am sorry I went to her. I even gave the benefit of doubt a couple of times, but when I started seeing the pattern of poor service, poor communication and inefficient staff, I made the decision to switch. Pretty much any other office should be better than Dr. Menon's. Forget about getting any good consultation from this doctor.
