Ratings for Dr. Anca Patroi
Dr Patroi is by far the best family Dr I have ever had. Her bedside manners are impeccable, she is not a "pill pusher" at all (which I have seen in other doctors and strongly dislike). She takes the time to listen. Her knowledge is incredible and when I was seriously sick (and getting closer and closer to loosing my life) and the ER doctors couldn't figure out what was wrong with me and kept misdiagnosing me she knew what was wrong with me and generally cared and fought and advocated for me and guided me until i got the right diagnosis and treatment. I credit her with saving my life and am forever grateful. Never met a better family doctor.
Dr Patroi has been my family doctor for more than 3 years. She is always listening carefully and making myself confortable. I am very happy she is my family doctor. Two years ago I went through rough times with my health and she was always there with moral and medical support. Dr Patroi not only listened well but also explained very well about the medical issues iI was dealing with. She is a wonderful person and very professional .
Absolutely cannot say enough how wonderful Dr Anca is. I have been meaning to write a review of her for a while, as I have been a patient for almost 7 years. She has always, ALWAYS made me feel comfortable. Two years ago, I suffered two back to back miscarriages. Each time, Dr Anca was more than a doctor - she was a support lifeline, letting me cry on her shoulder. After the second miscarriage, she called me personally and asked me to come in the next day before her clinic opened, just to see me and offer support, including any referrals I wanted to fertility doctors. When I finally had a successful pregnancy, she was overjoyed for me and supported me throughout the whole pregnancy. The staff at the clinic are wonderful as well-- I have a fear of needles and anytime I had blood draws they were so kind and helpful. I find Dr Anca more than punctual, in fact if you get there early you are often seen a few minutes before your appointment. So very happy to have found a family doctor who is approachable, kind, and definitely listens to her patient's concerns.
My family has been her patients for over 5 years. She is one of the nicest people I know and very good physician. Not once in 5 years have we been rushed or felt the need to see another doctor. My son won't even go to a pediatrician but when we say we have to go see Dr. Patroi he is ready. Diagnosis perfect and her caring nature is top notch...its 5 stars for you always Dr Patroi
I love Dr. Patroi - she makes me feel valued and listened to. She doesn't brush anything off, and always sends me for tests or recommends me to specialists if I have a concern. The only criticism I have is once I mentioned to her during a physical that I was hoping to lose a bit of weight (27 BMI - so not terrible, but still overweight). She just kind of brushed me off and told me that I didn't need to lose anything. I've since lost almost 30 pounds through exercise and dieting, with information that I found on the internet in my own time instead. I wish she could have helped me from the get-go, but I have a feeling she may have not wanted to hurt my feelings. She's very considerate and compassionate, and I really like her.
I'm not sure who would possibly rate Dr. Anca as "draining" because she's the exact opposite. She always makes me feel like I'm the most important patient to her, and always makes me feel better! When I took a pregnancy test with her and she handed me the paper confirming I was pregnant with my first child, I cried, and she blew my mind by giving me a hug, saying that she understood exactly what I was feeling, not only as a doctor, but as a woman. She is the best doctor I've ever had in my life. I don't even live in Milton anymore, but she will always be my family doctor. Shame on that ONE ignorant person who berated her English and thought she was impersonal. She's NEVER been that way before to me or anyone in my family. She's knowledgeable, caring, compassionate, and a real human being. Anyone in need of a family doctor in Halton NEEDS to visit with her. She's amazing.
Rate Dr. Anca Patroi, I just saw Dr. Anca Patroi and felt drained. She drained my energy. I had injuries and I don’t have a family doctor, that made me in a position where I had no physician to take care of me. So I am trying to find a family doctor who is professional and who cares about the patient. When I called the clinic for an appointment with Anca Patroi, the receptionist suggested that I see Patroi as a walk-in patient and then decide if I would like to sign up with her. I found her impersonal and uncaring. She walked into the room and prescribed some topical cream and that was it. I told her I needed a family doctor for my injury issues and she said I needed to see a family doctor. And I need a 20-minute session. She said there are a lot of doctors accepting new patients and I should go to them. I asked her if she accepts new patients, she said “yes, but not much.” (Those were her own words - her English was poor.) She said Dr. Makinde and Dr. …(a South Asian name) were also accepting new patients. I felt I was not welcome. I told her “I would like to be frank. If you don’t like to be my doctor, I would not force myself upon you.” How insensitive this woman is! If she has the basic human sensitivity, and the basic doctor’s quality she would know what and why I went to see her. She would have said, “we need 20 minutes to examine your injury, why don’t you book another appointment to come and see me?” If she did so, it would be a step forward for me to get myself a family doctor. I took my time to read all the reviews before I saw her and I mentioned to her that patients said good things about her. She simply shrugged. It says it did not matter what patients say about her. I found the opposite to what other reviewers said about Patroi. I cannot think of anything good to say about her after this very brief visit. I found her impersonal, getting patients in and out as fast as she can. She does not care and she carries a barrier around herself. She did not care to win my respect and trust. I have no motivation to see her again. I have to spend time and energy to continue my Doctor hunting. I left my water bottle behind in Room 1 and in a minute, when I went back to retrieve it, it was gone. She threw it out! If she took the bottle to the receptionist, I would feel better about her. The receptionist Andie gave me a new bottle. Good for her. She cares and connects with people. A very rare quality you can’t find among physicians. She does not connect with the staff! It is obvious Patroi sees walk-in patients as a fast and easy way to make money. So she doesn’t care to sign up her own patients. For her, the occupation is just a money-making activity, not a profession.
