Ratings for Dr. Danuta Kajetanowicz
Dr Danuta is a wonderful doctor. Her honesty is very refreshing. She does not beat around the bush. However, Brenda, her secretary is a very rude and unkind woman who is difficult to deal with. I have been with Danuta for year and never considered leaving, but if i ever do, it will be because of Brenda.
Danuta is a nice woman but unless your a baby or pregnant she does not know her stuff. Even if you like Danuta her secretary is even more useless if you can even get through as she has a tendency to either leave the phone off the hook or put the message on. I really don't understand how that woman has a job there, she's rude and ignorant.
First time I really got sick resulting in surgery I understand not catching it because I was healthy beforehand but the next two times, of "No something is wrong with me" and those resulting in surgeries, should really teach someone to actually listen to their patients. I have a chronic illness and other ailments that put me in chronic pain, but I haven't made an appointment with her in over a year because I'm really tired of hearing "What do you want me to do about it?" or "Your too young for that". The way we've always seen it is she only wants to be a baby doctor, the rest of us are just putting the extra decimal on the paycheck so she could care less. CB needs more doctors
When my first was born my labor went very quickly. Once Danuta was at the hospital I couldn't get an epidural (as I planned to). I was petrified because I'm a wimp for pain but she calmed me down and reassured me the entire time. She is honestly what got me through my delivery and pregnancy. She answered any and all questions and knew I was nervous so she made sure to ask how I was doing whenever she saw me. The only negative experience was with Brenda. She was very rude and made the experience unpleasant. But other than that I enjoyed Danuta as my doctor!
I also agree completely with the comments about Brenda. She is pretty bad. I can deal with rudeness to a certain degree as our reality is a shortage of doctors in Cape Breton. But Brenda needs to be reminded to make appointments that are time sensitive and, when I take time off work and drive 40 minutes for an appointment only to find out as I arrive at the doc's office to a cranky Brenda, that I'm being rescheduled... well, that's just not cool either. And Dr K... people seem to love her or hate her. I discontinued seeing her after she demonstrated that her ego is more important than the well-being of her patient. Now I am on the search for a new doctor which will be difficult but I would prefer travelling a distance than dealing with Dr K and Brenda.
I completely agree with the comments about Brenda. She has got to go. I am leaving as soon as I find a new doctor and it has nothing to do with Dr. Danuta. Dr. Danuta is great but it is shocking how her secretary talks to the patients. She is so ignorant. I swear my blood pressure goes up drastically time I have to speak to Brenda.
I have been seeing Dr. Danuta for seven years now and have been very happy with her. She is friendly, witty and very knowledgeable. Brenda, although, is hit or miss. She can be very pleasant one day and pretty rude the next. She rarely answers the phone too. It just took me approximately 100 calls over a three day span to get through to make an appointment. It seems like she sets the phone to go to voicemail for hours at a time. Very frustrating.
