Ratings for Dr. Methulaksmi Yegappan
All you need to know is RUN OUT THAT OFFICE AND FIND YOU A NEW OBGYN. She’s psycho and it’ll fee like your being violated during your pap. She’ll also think your lying and then she’ll judge you. Find a doctor that loves their job and will atleast cars for their patients
I have been to Dr.Yaggapan for a short time. Her receptionist is rude, the office answering machines does not take messages, so you spend most your day trying to get through to the secretary during the hours she answers the phone. If you can't get through and need to cancel your appointment there is a more than $50 cancellation fee. At my first visit Dr. Yeggapan took down my patient history & recorded most of what i said wrong. She bullied me into doing a PAP test that i didn't want b/c i was about to OV and was actively TTC that day & the night before. She then told me to undress infront of her & get up on the table for the PAP, which i was horrified. Where is the privacy with that? Then as she got ready to do the PAP she threw all the wrappings from the instruments on the floor & after the test was done she also threw the gloves she used on the floor for her receptionist to clean up. I was horrified at how uncouth she is & would never suggest being examined by her. After she was done she wanted me to dress infront of her too as she typed notes into her computer. At my 2nd visit she prescribed meds that can severely effect most my other medical issues, so i didn't take the meds. I find myself constantly 2nd guessing her & have no faith in her abilities, she needs to retire. She bounces from one topic to another & between that & her thick accent she is very hard to understand. I am looking for a new OBGYN, won't be going back to her. If i could rate her office and her abilities asa zero on this star rating scale i would.
She is awful!!! I waited for her for like 1 hour, keep in mind there were only 2 people ahead of me, when I finally got called in I had to ask her to leave the room so that I could undress then she didn't come back for like half an hour. When she came back she felt my stomach and started going higher and higher and then just straight up lifted my bra up and flashed my breasts, she said she was just checking for abnormality's, but even so she should of asked or at least told me what she was about to do. When she was done she told me I could get dressed and said she was going to stay in the room, I refused and then she took her tome to leave. I do not recommend her at all, she is awful and made me feel very uncomfortable.
I recently had quite an awful experience with this doctor. After having an IUD put in, I begin to lose my hair, eyelashes, and went into a serious depression. I went to her office after four months, and I had to really push for the removal of the IUD. She told me I had not given it a fair chance. She also told me that I seemed as though I was an anxious person, and implied this was all in my head. I left the office in tears. The only reason I am not giving the entire office a 1* rating is that I found her receptionist to be helpful and friendly.
My second and last visit to her office was such an awful experience. I can't remember the last time I ever felt belittled and unwelcomed by anyone, nevermind a doctor. At the first visit when my boyfriend and I were sitting in the room, she made a few judgemental comments while rolling her eyes at us. However, I was able to brush that off. At the end of the appt she mentioned something about me needing to go to the hospital to get a needle. I was then given an appt for an ultrasound the following week. At my second appt, she asked how the ukstrasound went. I told her it went well. She then asked me by I didn't get an inner pelvic exam. I looked at her blankly as I remembered the ultrasound technician saying, " your doctor didn't check off an inner pelvic exam.... so you don't need that done today." She rolled her eyes at me and shook her head. She then asked me if I had gone to the hospital to get the needle. I explained to her what happened- I had gone to the hospital, asked the nurse if I needed to wait 4 hours in the emergency room to get one needle, or if I could book an appt or get it through my family doctor. She told me I should try giving my family doctor a call to make an appt because I was in "no rush" to get the needle. In the midsts of explaining this, Dr Yegappan cut me off, calling me a liar and accusing me of blaming the nurse for why I didn't get the needle. She continued to tell me that I frustrate her because I "don't listen." I sat across from her trying not to cry while she talked down to me. She then told me I had to go to the hospital right then. So I went and the doctor there looked at her paperwork with frustration because she "didn't leave any instructions.... she didn't really write much." I ended up getting the needle which was literally hours away from being useless for my body, otherwise I would potentially have issues with giving birth in the future. The whole situation is frustrating for many reasons. She gives extremely poor instructions. She had be sitting in her office on the verge of tears. And naturally, I trusted her with my health, both physical AND emotional... she definitely should not be a doctor.
I absolutely love Dr. Yegappan. She delivered both my sons and circumsized them. She saved my youngest sons life along with mine. His cord was delivering before him before I was dialated and she knew how much I didn't want a C section. She reached her hand in and pushed the cord back up over him and I delivered vaginally. She was amazing and very helpful and always a pleasure to deal with. I would definitely use her again and recommend her.
