I was not feeling well today, and both Dr. Panzera and the staff were very reassuring and promptly took care of the situation, had me lie down in an exam room, and kept checking on me until I was feeling betterand could go home. I am very happy that Dr. Panzera is one of my doctors. Her staff is excellent, too.

I was very satisfied with Dr. Panzera, however the facilities and the support staff and general atmosphere of the office needs a major makeover. I would suggest to the physicians that they hire an objective person to pose as a patientand go through the process of being a patient from the minute they enter the door. The entire experience is very unprofessional. I am quite surprised that the physicians who all appear to be very professional are not taking notice of the environment in which they work and the environment and interactions their patients are exposed to.

Very smart, thorough, and I could tell she knew what she was talking about. She explained everything in a very clear concise way, and listened to all my concerns. She wasn't super warm to begin with, but as the appointment wenton she became friendlier and was very kind. I waited a long time for my appointment, but I was also late to my appointment- so cant hold this against them much.

I've been going to Dr. Panzera for over 11 years. She is quiet and unassuming. However, she is very knowledgeable about her craft and the latest trends in her field. She always takes the time to listen to you and answerany of your questions. She explains everything she is doing, the reasons why, as well as the medications your taking in detail. She explains the chemotherapy process thoroughly. In addition, she explains the possible side effects and when they may occur. Her quiet demeanor, knowledge, and calm manner calms any fears you may have. She is excellent and I highly recommend her.

Was refered to her by my PCP, the two times I have seen her, she has been excellent. Very professional and easy to talk to. She seems generally concerned with the reason for your visit and does not try to rushyour appointment despite appearing to have a busy schedule of appointments. Office can be tough to find for your first visit, it is located in the rear of a residential lobby.
