Dr. Panagos is great! He was highly recommended to me by my husband, who also loves him. He listened to me and was very nice and easy to talk to. More importantly, he was able to diagnose a simple problem whichhad baffled previous doctors (who had ordered multiple MRIs and ultrasounds). The visit finally put my mind at ease after months of visits to other professionals. I can't recommend Dr. Panagos enough.

I've only had one visit with Dr. Panagos so far, but he was very warm and really listened to me and what was going on. He was also able to explain his initial diagnosis in layman's terms without sounding at allcondescending. Awaiting more testing, but very much looking forward to seeing Dr. Panagos again!

He's the best. This was my 2nd visit, for a new issue, and he was informative and thorough with his diagnosis. I'm certain any other doctor would have sent me off for an MRI post haste, but Dr. Panagos instead tookthe time to work through my issue on the spot.

Dr. Panagos is a thoughtful doctor who takes a conservative approach. I have seen Dr. Panagos for plantar fasciitis and most recently for lower back pain. A year and a half ago, I would have tried anything at any expense tocure my plantar fasciitis. Other doctors I'd seen had advised me to have cortisone shots and surgery, but Dr. Panagos said that I should completely rest my foot from running for an extended period of time. I chose to listen to Dr. Panagos because of his willingness to listen to me, his careful explanation and description of what was happening in my foot, and his general bedside manner. It turns out that he was right and within a few months I was running again. I highly recommend Dr. Panagos for anyone who is experiencing spine/back or sports related physical injuries.

I waited 4 days after my initial visit and the doctor still had no contacted me with a diagnosis. I then had to reach out and leave a message for the doctor who finally followed up and said i needed anMRI. It is now another 4 days after the MRI and 2 weeks after my initial consult and I still have no heard from the doctor. Considering the amount of pain I expressed I would think that any reasonable medical professional would seek immediate treatment options. I'm unsure if this is a lack of organization, care or general laziness however I will be scheduling a new appointment with another doctor.

I came to see Dr. Andre Panagos about my knee issue. He performed some manual tests. And determined that I needed an MRI, as he could not quite see anything wrong. I was happy with the appointment. I was informed thatI will be contacted regarding my MRI appointment and what will be next. They would contact my insurance company, issue the MRI, and inform me of the details. This was three months ago, in September. I haven’t heard from his office since that time. No updates, no status, nothing. Very disappointing. How can someone not even bother with a telephone call or an email? Highly unprofessional. I expressed my concern for my knee pain that I was enduring for months. I was told not to worry, that first we’ll go through an MRI, and then take it from there. Needless to say, nothing happened. All promises. I will not be returning to this office, unfortunately.

I felt that while the doctor was extremely friendly and knowledgeable, he did not seem to look into the severity of my issues. He continuously told me I needed to lose weight to solve the problems (stress fractures), would not lookinto all of my presented issues, and had me return for multiple follow up appts in which he did not do any further treatment or testing. I was unhappy with the service and eventually found a new doctor to treat my issues.

I had a very positive experience with Dr. Panagos. He saw me right away. He listened thoughtfully to my history of injury and understood the nature of my condition. I feel that he gave me intelligent advice regarding how to treatmy back pain with physical therapy and acupuncture, and eventually just with certain exercises I can do myself. His advice totally made sense to me. I never felt rushed. I would recommend him highly to people I care about.

I had to wait about half an hour to see him because he was taking an urgent phone call, but it was worth it! Dr. Panagos was super cheerful when he walked in and made me feel at ease, especially sinceI wasn't sure what was wrong with my foot. He worked fast, was efficiently and clearly knew what he was doing since he figured out which tendon was hurting really quickly.

As a an MS in Narrative Medicine I value a clinician who knows how to listen and honor the patient's story of illness as a path to diagnosis and treatment. Dr Panagos demonstrated that he is highly skilled in balancing theMedical Narrative with the patient's narrative. I was not merely treated; I received CARE. I left his office feeling optimistic about the future and that I have found a true partner in my healthcare.
