Ratings for Dr. Geeta Achyuthan
Dr. Achyuthan has been my physician for 12+ years and she has usually been good. I recently spent 12 hours in ER on a Sunday for a problem and on Monday morning her staff called to make an appointment to discuss the results. I went to the office 2 days later and it was a complete waste of my time especially since I live out of town. She didn’t even know why I was there and when I told her she just said she would refer me to my general surgeon!! When I asked her another question about an unrelated problem she stated “make another appointment in a months time or more” and promptly left the room!! I saw her for a total of 3 minutes!! This unfortunately has been my experience as of late with her.....disappointing!! I am on the search for a new MD!!!
Has been my doctor for 17 years - always very helpful, gives good explanations and listens to questions. Very good with all my kids as well. Doesn't push pills but will give prescriptions and often says to fill only if needed. Glad to have her as my doctor.
I have been a patient of Dr A for over 25 years. She always answers my questions and is firm when needed. Has also given me great referrals when needed. I feel fortunate to have her. Any good Dr usually runs a bit late if they are taking proper time with patients.
I & my husband have been seeing Dr. Achyuthan from past 4 years. She is a good doctor, but has no time for her patient's. She has always been late by 30-40 minutes for every appointment & rushes the meeting. In one of our appointments, she said - Make a separate appointment for all your other problems. 1 appointment is for 1 problem & that is how it works in Canada. I was amazed hearing that! We am now looking for our next GP.
I've been going to Dr Achyuthan for about 22 years. She's empathetic and tough, follows through and you're never left hanging wondering about test results. The only negative I have to say is that you are restricted to three things to speak to her about in a 10 minute sessions, even if those don't describe the situation enough.
She never listens, doesn't even check when something is wrong. I broke my foot and she didn't even look at it she just said 'go get some xrays' so I did and I didn't get the results back for a week ! I was in terrible pain! I've had her all my life and I'm currently trying to find a new doctor that I like.
Dr Geeta Achyuthan has been my doctor for years. She took excellent care of me throughout my 2 pregnancies. She is always gentle and compassionate with my kids and myself. She has always been kind, caring and listens to whatever I have to say during my appointments. Nothing but great things to say about her and her staff.
