The Doctor was really nice, and the appointment went fine, the doctor was cleared from the beganing about the hospital affliations and she may not be available at time of due. But the only things I want share, The doctor left us some Vitemans at here office, and after we checked all of them were expired. This could be very series issue, if we didnt checked the expired date.

My daughter is 16 yrs. old with terrible cramps..we have been to 2 different adolescent doctors and they both treated my daughter like she was 12 yrs. old. Dr. Pellicena is the first doctor who actually listened to my daughter, spoke to hear in a clear, non-condescending manner and treated her like an adult. I can't tell you how much this meant not only to my daughter, but also to me. Thank you!!!

Nurse used post it notes to record answers to questions. Doctor told me I would have to make another appointment to discuss a concern I mentioned because this was my wellness visit. Her overall communication lacking professionalism. She in no way communicated an interest in anything I said.

the appointment went quick. Didn't feel personal. She didn't even use the light when she performed the exam. Didn't do urine test. I'm not sure what was supposed to be the standard of care so just telling my experience. Overall, it was average.

I do not recommend this doctor. It's very frustrating when you complete an online very detailed information form and then have to complete a paper copy of similar questions in the office, then answer the same questions with the med. asst. and then the doctor. What's the point in completing an online & paper questionnaire if no one is going to read them? I made an appointment for an annual visit and sterilization consultation, but I was rushed and while asking questions the doctor is heading for the door to walk out. Didn't make time to consult or answer questions, very rushed. The examination room was extremely unsanitary. Very dust and small, the foot rests are covered with a fabric covering that was stained and doesn't look like they're washed at all. It's very unsanitary! They have no hooks or hangers to hang your clothes after undressing. The bathroom was unsanitary as well, with two uncovered urine samples sitting out on the small table. I should have walked out when I had the initial feeling, or the second or third feeling. Listen to your gut and don't worry about hurting anyone's feelings.

Ella entro y se presento. Fue muy amable pero cuando le dije quien era mi gynecologa y que estaba buscando una segunda opinion le di el nombre de la doctora y dijo "ella no es especialista en fertilidad" y yo no entendi si me estaba diciendo o preguntado. Asi que yo conteste no? y ella me dijo de una manera muy despota no!, te estoy dicendo que ella no es especialista en fertilidad y la verdad yo te recomiendo que sigas con ella pues ella es la que a llevado tu caso. Ni si quiera me checo, simplemente me dio el corton y eso a mi no me gusto ya que yo llevaba tiempo buscando una ginecologa y ella no fue lo que yo esperaba.
