Ratings for Dr. Joan Lopatka
Receptionist is rude and will give you the stink eye if your 10 minutes late for an appointment with your infant. But the doctors ok with making you wait over half an hour past your scheduled appointment time any given day and says that's her "disclaimer" is she runs behind. Maybe she should book less appointments in a day. I would rather wait another week to be seen then have her waste my time and make me sit with an impatient 2 yr old that goes to enough medical appointments as it is. Most useless doctor I know and I work with a bunch. Will just take what you or other specialists say about your child and regurgitate it to you at your next appointment without any helpful input of her own. Stay clear. Find someone else. I think she is ready to throw in the towel and only wants simple cases at this point.
She is wonderful. She has seen all 3 of mine since birth (3 kids in the last 5 years) and we love having her for our dr. She will answer questions if you have them, will refer out when needed and doesn't let even the tiniest mole go unnoticed. If you need the time she will give it to you. Yes you will wait sometimes, find me a good, busy Dr you won't wait sometimes for. Some patients require unexpected extra time (my child has been that patient) so I'm greatful when she spends that few extra minutes with us and i don't mind waiting other times if other patients end up needing more time. She's a very busy lady between the hospital and clinic but she finds the time if you need it. She's busy for a reason and her receptionist is very sweet. I highly recommend her
I have had nothing but excellent experiences she is to the point, has open and honest communication regarding concerns I fully trust her opinion and she has directed us to different specialist for areas that require more specialized knowledge base . I am sure she may not be for everyone but she is defiantly the doctor for us and treats the way I need a doctor to!! I would wait all day to see her if I had to to know that I am getting the best care for my child! Thank you Dr we appreciate your time and effort !!
Pretty crappy doctor. She also gave me many rude responses when I went in with my first daughter asking questions about allergic responses. My main problem is the RECEPTIONIST who has told me to call back every time on days the office is closed. Also she has talked back to me numerous times and is highly unprofessional. Not a very welcoming receptionist and the appointments are always SO late. Worst place to go!
