Ratings for Dr. Antoniette Dimaria
Dr. DiMaria is a very compassionate doctor who does not talk down to you or make you feel like she is rushing you out of the office. The new office she moved into at beginning of 2018 and shares with a Pediatrician, is very bright, clean and cheerful. The new receptionists they have are very kind and responsive in person and when answering and speaking on the phone. I have been a patient of hers for approximately 10 years and am grateful to have her as my doctor. I do not mind being referred to specialists when concerns arise. Her title is General Practitioner and so I expect to be referred to specialist if I have an ongoing issue so it can be looked at in depth by a specialist and not left to worsen.
Dr. DiMaria is one of the nicest doctors for sure, but I must agree about the dismissive receptionists and about how she tends to not remember much about your previous history which a cursory glance at my charts would clarify for her. Moreover, she has always been really big on pushing the specialist angle. This is not new. I agree with the assessment of her as a gatekeeper for the rest of the specialized doctors. If you are looking for a kind and compassionate doctor, she's what you need. I just wish there was a bit more of an attempt to review my file - even just a little bit - before she began to see me.
Have a look through these comments...most say the same thing. She's a nice lady and a caring doctor, but the office is hard to get hold of, the phones are always busy, and her front office staff is rude. It's been going on for years, as these comments attest, and the situation hasn't changed one bit. She's caring, she's nice, and her office staff hides behind the glass - probably quite busy sure, but with very little patience and empathy for the patients concerns, or the often lengthy delays. Where there's smoke, there's fire....and this many commenters can't all be wrong. The ONLY thing negative I have to say about Dr DiMaria is that she tends to just refer people to specialists these days. Less ongoing care, and more "stack em in" style appointments, just to get referred to someone else. A bit of a gatekeeper to the rest of the medical world.
Very thorough and punctual doctor. Staff are friendly but do always seem very busy. I wish they had an answering service. The line is always busy but if you call back in 5 min, as long as it is in their working hrs, it will be answered. Would love to be able t just leave a message for them to return my call. I have learned to work with their system however I wish they would get into the 21st century with an answering phone service and email!
Dr Di Maria is a fantastic and very thorough doctor. She listens intently, asks a lot of questions, and looks into every concern. She has been my doctor for many, many years and I have always had the utmost respect for her. I feel confident in her care.
Dr. DiMaria has been my doctor for about 7 years now, and every time I have seen her, she has been fantastic. She has a warm and caring heart and does her best to make sure she takes great care of her patients. I've never had to wait more then 10 mins to see her. She is a wonderful lady. I have never had an issue with her staff being rude, however, I have heard negative feedback about them. My expiriences have always been great and they have always been very helpful.
Dr. Dimaria seems a little dazed at times and asks questions like, "when did you last have a blood test"? or "when was your last physical?" If she has my file in front of her then she should take the time to look at the information she needs in order to answer those types of questions. Sometimes it's difficult for me to remember dates/months. I also feel rushed when trying to ask her questions. The poor, unfriendly staff is a misrepresentation of Dr. Dimaria's practice. When trying to phone the office the line is always busy and there's no answering service to leave a voice message.
