Ratings for Dr. Patricia Llewellyn
Like other reviewers, if you aren't a sheep that just nods and follows her directive with no questions asked, she gets annoyed with you. She doesn't even try to hide it. I was scared to have major surgery as any normal human being should be. But she does surgery nearly every day, so she is like a robot, completely void of compassion. After my hysterectomy I went for my post op visit and complained of an "inguinal hernia" bulge that wasn't there before my surgery. Her response: "I was no where near there." Um, yeah, you kinda were. I pressed onward in the face of her defiance and she told me to just live with it, that she had one herself and I shouldn't go through surgery again for something so minor. I hated her from that moment on as I went to another doctor that CARED about solving my problem. Come to find out, I had a super rare female hydrocele of the canal nuk and had to have minor surgery, but that hydrocele was so sensitive, I still guard myself for the pain that I think is coming even though I'm months post op from that follow up surgery. Dr. Lewellyn''s a jerk.
This is the worst obgyn. They cancelled my first appointment. At my second appointment I waited over 90 minutes in a cold room in a gown. She came in rushed and was very short and ill manored. She did not listen at all and was very clearly disinterested in my health. Her staff was terrible!!!!!
My first thought of Dr. Llewellyn... eh. I really don't get all the hype about her at all. A friend recommended her but I didn't find her any more special than any other doctor I've seen before. I found her to be very quick and to the point, like most doctors are anyways. She didn't spend much time with me, even on my very first visit with her, so that was a bit disturbing to me. I just think she's like your every day OB/GYN and nothing special.
I am very happy to have found Dr. Llewellyn! I'm very comfortable with her knowledge base and for me, her demeanor is perfect. She's funny and honest and helpful! A very real person, a mom of twins, understands women's issues and I feel like I am in very qualified hands!
Terrible experience. Was rushed through my annual exam (because she had an personal appointment to go to) and she ran tests that were not consented to or that I had knowledge of until I was billed for them. When I tried to switch doctors before last appointment, the staff informed me that was not possible. Always feel like she doesn't listen/care at all of my past appointments.
The office staff and nurses are very helpful, when you can get them on the phone. The Clearwater office is way too busy, it's like a zoo. I don't think the Clearwater staff wants to operate this way, but because of the volume, they are forced to. The Westchase office is less hectic and the staff has a chance to actually call you back. While you are there they are able to take time to explain things and is able to treat you as a patient not a number. In either case, the doctor is knowledgeable, kind, and straightforward. I trust her.
I have been going to her for years and a very happy GYN patient. Recently my husband and I began to try for a baby, we experienced M/C and when we went to her for advice, she was not at all compassionate. I left feeling like I wasted her time! But in the end, I figured maybe she was having a bad day. Then just recently, I had some positive home pregnancy tests, so I called and was able to get in right away (which I loved)only to learn that the test in the office came back negative. Very upsetting. Again, not all that compassionate. There I was crying my eyes out and I had to ask for some tissues. Honestly, I think she is great when everything goes well, but whenever there are complications or emotional displays she clams up. I will continue to see her because I have a history with her. I don't want to risk meeting another doc who is worse. Trust me, there are far worse OB/GYNs out there. But overall, I think she could work on her compassion for those of us struggling with fertility
