Ratings for Dr. Patricia Morassut
It is the first time i see amdr who was caring so much, she asked a lot of questions, listened to me, was not pressuring me to be out of her office, very very nice and went out of her way to make me an appointment for an appointment for a biopsie for me she is a perfect dr who cares.
Dr Morassut is by far one of the worst doctors let alone rheumatologists I have ever come across. She is extremely cold does not care for the overall well-being of her patients and is not knowledgeable at all. My lupus condition has been worsening and instead of trying to find a course of action to get it under control she referred me to an allergist. She deflects her job and asks that I see my GP and have her do requisitions when she is the SPECIALIST! I am dumbfounded by her level of inexperience and lack of compassion towards a young patient with a rheumatic condition that is not under control. I will not be returning and requesting a new rheumatologist after 6 long months of worsening symptoms. It is also impossible to get an appointment.
I've been seeing Dr. Morassut about my RA for 2-3 years now and she's wonderful. It's taken some time and trial and error to sort out what medication is best for me, but I'm on one now that has been working splendidly. I really feel like she listens to my questions and answers them effectively. Her office is well run and they are quick to return calls if ever I need to reach Dr. Morassut outside of an appointment.
My referral from my gp was refused by Dr Morrasut via fax with her generic comment of how busy the practice is and how she doesn't see patients with chronic pain or fibromyalgia, in which I DO NOT HAVE. Unfortunately, she cost me another agonizing 4 month wait to see another rheumatologist. I have since been diagnosed with the rheumatic disease suspected by my gp and have started biologics. I'm on the road to recovery.
A total timewaster. Insisted on prescribing a medication that I made clear that I had already tried and received no effective/noticeable results from; would not let go of this, and I left with a Rx I threw out on my way out of the building -- very odd, especially as my GP was doing a good job with pain control and that was not at all what I was visiting her for. (Rare but not the first time I have gone through "I have tried that and it does not work" and been told "Try it again anyway" with a physician -- do they really think people fill them instead of giving up, smiling, nodding, and pitching it out...? What is the point of "try it anyway" in response to "I've had that prescribed -- unfortunately it did nothing"? A mystery...) I was, I thought, visiting her for chronic hip bursitis. I learned absolutely nothing new about the condition, could not get any sort of answer about any possibility of a bursectomy, and, much later, found out her write-up sent back to my GP had decided that I had fibromyalgia...?!?! This was not something she mentioned to me at all, and I do not have widespread pain or any of the other symptoms associated with fibromyalgia. Still not sure if she confused me with another patient, or...?? The appointment was uselessly brief -- it is terrible to wait so long and get one's hopes up and not be listened to and sent on your way in a rush. She was cheerful and pleasant, but ignored or dismissed every question I had, and had nothing to offer but the Rx, despite how many times I told her it had tried it, found no relief, and that I was satisfied with my current medications. My GP, who I have been seeing for years, was also puzzled by the "fibromyalgia" idea. The drug Dr Morassut was so fixated on does not seem to be one in much use for that, too. Short version: let-down, and very confusing. Really needs to take more time with patients, and listen more carefully.
