Ratings for Dr. Mary Pietraszek
Would certainly recommend Dr. Pietraszek. She's very kind and concerned with me and my family's health. She always acts patient , listening to any and all concerns and answering questions (I have a lot). She's been very good too with sending me to the specialists she thinks will best serve my needs which is great because I've often had trouble receiving the right recommendations in the past with other doctors.
I am very surprised to see any negative comments about Dr. Pietraszek. She has been my family doctor for years, and has taken very good care of me. What I love about her is that she takes patent concerns seriously, and will not brush them off the way I have seen other doctors do. She listens to patients concerns and does not hesitate to send them for bloodwork / xrays / etc to follow up on whatever they need. She is very friendly and kind and incredibly comforting to work with. I would recommend her.
She used to be my family doctor. But, I realized that she is like people say: " will not do the harm and will not help". Instead of dealing with a patient's health problems, she would send him/ her to a specialists. If it comes to filling out the forms, she never has time; she never wants to get involved into anything. You will have to look for a new MD who would look after the pre-surgery documentations/ form. Mostly sad, like there is no life inside her.
This doctor injected me with what she claims to have been a B12 shot. But the liquid in the vile was clear not the standard dark pink solution B12 it comes in Canada. After being injected I had to be rushed to the emergency department after my blood pressure spiked to life threatening level of 280/160, irregular heart rate, burning pain in chest area and pain around heart. Doctors at the hospital ran tests including EKG & angiogram and all tests came back negative. I remained in the hospital for days until my heart stabilized. Her office staff were rude and the doctor stuck to her story that she injected B12 booster which she clearly did not as I have had B12 shots before and never was the fluid clear like water and never did it cause me such burning pain in my left arm, chest/heart area immediately after being injected. To this day I am still having frequent burning around heart area and chest pains. Curious if other patients experienced similar after receiving an injection from her?
As a first time patient of Dr. Pietraszek's, I was stunned to leave the office without her checking my blood pressure or listening to my heart/lungs, nothing, despite having told her several of my concerns, one of which had to do with my heart and possibly blood pressure. She asked me what she could do for me, like I was walking into a store not a doctor's office. I would not recommend anyone go to her if they've got strong concerns about their health as she does not seem too concerned about her patients. On the other hand if you need a referral, this is the doctor to see.
