Verified Patient Reviews
I will definitely continue to see Dr. Patwardhan. There was a long wait to see her - but they called ahead of time to push my appointment back 30 minutes, and let me know that it could be a little longer ahead of time because she had an emergency surgery she needed to perform. I appreciated that they notified me ahead of time. So I knew I was taking a risk on the timing when I kept the appointment, and I was prepared for a long wait time - it did not bother me. Once I did see. Dr. Patwardhan, I did not feel like the appointment was rushed. She took the time to ask me good questions to get to know my 'whole' experience, which I have not experienced with many other OB-GYNs I have seen. She made sure to address all of my questions, and explained everything well. I liked her bedside manner - direct and straightforward, but kind. Based on this experience, I would definitely recommend others to her.
I just moved to Denver permanently in January of this year. I had seen Dr. Patwardhan while I was working as a travel nurse a few years ago. I knew when my fiance and I decided to call Denver home, I definitely wanted to go back and see her again when it came time for my check-up. She is personable and takes the time to talk to you about any questions or concerns you may have without making you feel rushed or anxious. The office staff and nursing staff were very friendly. I highly recommend Dr. Patwardhan and her practice!
I really felt comfortable during my time at the office and in my room. Dr. Patwardhan made everything very easy. The only bad part was the wait time for her to return to my room before the pap and breast exam. It felt like I was waiting for ever! But it wasn't bad enough for me to not return.
Dr. Patwardhan was friendly and personable, and she spent a lot of time getting to know me before my exam. She left plenty of time for me to ask questions. She seemed to have a lot of knowledge and recommended a couple of things that I hadn't thought about. I am new to the city, and she also offered to recommend a primary care doctor.
Care was excellent however staff didn't provide proper instructions.to me. As a new patient they called me from the waiting room asked me to give a urine sample but failed to tell me where to go after the bathroom which was next to the nurses station. Do I go back to the waiting area? I stood there 5-8 minutes before anyone asked if they could help. I explained and they said oh...They took me to a room where I sat for another 20 min. It just seemed a little odd.
Dr Patwardhan had really good bedside manner and made me feel very comfortable. She answered all my questions and provided concise feedback. I would highly recommend her.
I would definitely recommend Dr. Patwardhan. I was a new patient to her office, my appointment was on time, and she took the time to sit down with me before my actual exam to get to know me and answer any questions I had. Honestly it was probably the best annual physical exam I have experienced (aka, the pap was not awful/painful). She is incredibly patient and knowledgeable, her bedside manner is great, and I am so glad I found her here in Denver.
Samantha and the team were great. Respectful and kind. Happy to be a new patient at this practice.
She gave me good vibes
My annual check up went well with Dr Patwardhan and she answered my questions and addressed my concerns.
She was very approachable, very concerned about my well-being, and very knowledgeable. I also liked that she met me and talked with me first before having me put the hospital gown on. Very pleased with her as my doctor.
My visit with Dr. Patwardhan was as pleasant as one could expect when it's your yearly. She was kind, patient with questions and offered up some advice on non related medical questions, which was awesome. I'm sticking with her for future visits.
I was so impressed with the front office staff, the medical assistants, and would highly recommend Dr. Patwardhan to anyone looking for an OBGYN. She took the time to ask questions to try to get to know me on a personal level, and I loved that. Very impressed with the level of care from the start to finish.
Very helpful, discreet, and approachable- exactly what you need!
Everyone is very friendly and calming. Dr. Patwardhan was very caring and made me feel at-ease about all my concernns
She was fantastic. Kind, easy to talk to, smart, caring. Everything you want in a doc. So glad we found her!
Really appreciated her taking time to talk to me before having me put on the stupid gown, however noticed she forgot some stuff I had concerns about/things I had mentioned to the medical assistant which she should have been aware of. Overall i liked her, will return.
The office staff and Dr were all great. Got me in right away and answered all questions.
Dr. Patwardhan was amazing. She is calm, very knowledgeable, approachable and kind. One of the best doctors I have seen in a while. I highly recommend her.
She did not accept my insurance even though she was in the list with Cigna and Zocdoc
First time patient she comes in before the exam (and before changing into the gown) and introduces herself and talks to you about any concerns, etc. Took time to discuss questions, didn't feel rushed during appointment.
She does not rush you, she wants to know how you are doing. She is genuinely interested in you as a person. She is a very caring Doctor and terrific Doctor. Her staff is wonderful .
She is really good listener and answered for all of my questions and receptionist's are good as well. They are very responding in good manner.
Quick, easy, straightforward and painless. She is very warm and personable.
I've been coming to this office since 2004-2005, I would not go anywhere else. All the staff is professional and the doctors are busy, but very caring.
I had a fantastic experience at my appointment with Dr. Patwardhan. The receptionist was very friendly and the process of checking in was very quick and efficient. Sandra, the woman who took my vital signs and verified my health history was very personable, friendly, and made sure I was comfortable . Dr. Patwardhan is exceptional! She has a great bedside manner, took time to address all of the questions I had, and at no point seemed rushed. My labs were drawn immediately. I did not even feel the needle when Lawanda drew my blood. She was also very friendly and efficient. I recommend Dr. Patwardhan highly!
Very professional and courteous. Very reassuring, but not pandering. She was straightforward without being clinical or unsympathetic. Exactly what I would hope for in a doctor.
Loved Dr. Patwardhan and her entire office. My appointment went smoothly and she told me everything up front about my IUD. Her office even checked with my benefits to make sure what I had to pay, etc. Will definitely recommend to new people in Denver.
Love the doctor, love the office, I have a lot of questions and feel like I'm a needy patient. I really appreciate and respect this clinic a lot for never making me feel rushed with their time as they move through their obviously busy day.
Overall I thought Dr. Patwardhan was absolutely wonderful. I was able to get everything done in one appointment. The two women at the front we are absolutely
The entire staff was helpful and professional! I look forward to working with her as my lady Doctor.
Dr. Patwardhan and the practice's staff were extremely professional. There were many small gestures made to ensure comfort throughout my visit.
I love Dr. P! I've been seeing her for years. I'm an extremely anxious person and she always manages to explain everything in a very simple and calming way. Even though I've moved to the East Coast, I still will always come back to see her!
Samantha was great, very professional, no complaints in regards to her actual interaction with my. My only complaint would be the amount of time everything took. I waited for 35 minutes in the waiting room, then after my BP and iron count, it took another 10-15 minutes before the wrong doctor came in, another 5 minutes before she came in, and then after I changed it took 15 more minutes before she came back in. Service was great, but it took over an hour in wait time alone.
Excellent communication & felt "heard". Dr P is a surprisingly compassionate doctor who really listens to her patients. Not had this kind of experience with other doctors. Considering the personal and sometimes emotional subject matter, this is so appreciated.
The doc and staff were awesome. The wait time was terrible, but maybe it was an off day. I liked the service so much, though, that I'll go to her again and hope for a shorter time in the waiting room.
She was very friendly and helpful!!!
Absolutely caring and patient. Went above and beyond.
She was awesome made me.feel so comfortable for a procedure I have never had done before. Would recommend her to anyone.
Very easy going, gentle and understanding with my apprehension as it has been over 10 years since I have been in for an exam. One of the best doctor experiences I ever had.
It felt like she was trying to push the pill as a birth control method after i repeatedly said i would never remember to take it so it would not work for me, but she continued to push it. the nurses were very nice and helpful. Not a bad visit just was not impressed with the doctor.
Dr. Patwardhan was very friendly and professional, as were all the office staff and nurses.
Friendly office with lots of patients so be prepared to wait the average doctor time
Very nice visit from the second I walked in, to when I left. Dr. Patwardhan was very nice and made me feel very comfortable. The staff was very nice as well.
She was very polite and professional, answering all my questions and walking through the entire appointment ahead of time. All the staff was very friendly and personable as well.
First let me start off by saying I dread this yearly appointment...my fiance and I just moved to CO and I've been stressing about finding a new OB/GYN. That being said, I am SO relieved I found Dr. Patwardhan and her staff. From the moment I walked in everyone in the office made me feel very comfortable. The office staff was extremely friendly and I didn't need to wait long at all. The nurse who showed me in and took vitals was so sweet and couldn't have been more accommodating. It might not seem like much, but I also really appreciated the fact that since I was a first time patient, Dr. Patwardhan came in and introduced herself and talked to me about my medical history and life BEFORE I had to get undressed and awkwardly sit there in a gown. It was a nice touch. Her bedside manner is impecable and she almost made me forget I was there for a doctors appointment! Will be using her for all future exams!
Professional and comfortable environment
She took the time to patiently answer my questions and did not rush. She gave thorough explanations for everything as well!
First appointment as I am new to Denver and was looking for a new doctor. I found her! Dr. Patwardhan is professional and personal and answered all of my questions that I had about some issues I have been having. I would highly recommend her and the staff was terrific as well.
Excellent Dr who took her time with me. However, the wait before going in, while waiting in the room, and waiting for the procedure overshadowed the excellent bedside manner of the Dr.
I was very disappointed by Dr. Patwardhan. However, the office and front desk staff were absolutely wonderful. I was just in for a annual exam and Dr. Patwardhan made it feel rushed and failed to explain a current issue that required medication (!!!). I felt she was uninterested and simply didn't care.
I found her to be down to earth, easy to talk to and remarkably, a physician who listens to the patient! Highly recommended.
I thoroughly enjoyed my visit with the doctor. She was extremely professional, yet very comfortable to be seen by. I felt very safe and taken care of, something pretty important when seeing a new doctor. I will definitely be back.
I really, really liked Dr. Patwardhan! She was friendly, receptive, a good listener, and very personable. She heard my concerns and offered useful treatment options. I will definitely be going back to her.
I was extremely impressed with everything about the appointment! The doctor was kind, answered all the questions and very thorough! Will use here services in the future if need be!
Excellent dr and bedside manners. I explained to my dr all my situation going on and she carefully hear what I was saying. I felt comfortable with her presence and I would recommend her and her friendly and attentive staff to anyone that wants to be treated in its office.
Dr. Patwardhan is terrific! She takes the time to get to know you before she exams you and she takes the time to listen to you and answer any questions you might have. Her staff is terrific also. I highly recommend Dr. Patwardhan!
I was surprised in a positive way for. Her approach. She wanted to talk about myself and she replied to all my questions and My first impression was really good. waiting for her to follow up with me and will go for there,
I felt that the office staff were very professional and friendly and that Doc Patwardhan was a great and knowledgeable physician.
Very professional. Good communication. She answered all my questions and was not in a hurry.
The staff was friendly, cheerful and really just great, even though I was late. I had to wait, but that was my fault. The nurse was super sweet and Dr. Samantha was just as kind and patient and really thorough without wasting time. She answered all my questions, made sure I didn't have any more and happily said, see you next year! I have been looking for a good ob/gyn since I moved here 12 years ago. I found her!
She is taking care of her patients very well.
Very helpful and kind staff! Dr Samantha put me at ease and answered every question. I'm someone who doesn't go to doctor often because it's uncomfortable but it was very easy experience!
It was my first time seeing Dr. Patwardhan and I could not be more impressed. I am new to Denver and going to a new Doctor can be a stressful visit, but I have never felt more at ease. From the wonderful assistant checking my vitals to Dr. Patwardhan's speedy, professional, and gracious bedside manner- I will recommend her to all of my female friends in search of a new doctor! To the whole clinic- keep doing what you're doing!
Dr. Patwardhan was great! This is my first pregnancy and she was very helpful. The staff was very friendly as well! I highly recommend!
I was very impressed with the efficiency and organization of the front desk staff, as well a nurse who greeted me and took weight/vitals. I immediately felt at ease. Dr. Patwardhan was wonderful, as she clearly addressed all of my concerns in a way that left me feeling comfortable and taken care of. I would strongly recommend this office!
The office was nice, everyone was very friendly, and Dr. Patwardhan was great. She was very easy to talk to, and the exam was quick and painless! I would highly recommend her. Also had to get blood drawn, which I normally hate, but Sherry made it so easy. Overall a great experience.
Dr. Patwardhan has an excellent bedside manner. At the time of my first visit, I was 37. We talked about family planning. She gently recommended I do baseline Day 3 testing just to get an idea of what was going on with my body. She said she completely understood my reasons for waiting, but given my age and my family history, I might want to get tested just to see my numbers. No pressure though. Dr. Patwardhan was incredible and handled the situation perfectly. I owe her a debt of gratitude because I would have not found out that both myself and my husband have abnormal fertility issues.
As always, they are quick and you are in and out super fast. I have been going to this office for years and wouldn't go see any other OBGYN.
There was a bit of a wait but really not too bad and seemed to be for good reason. Everyone was very friendly and professional and Doctor Patwardhan was helpful and ready to answer questions.
the wait was a little longer than I expected but sometimes that is just how it is, the MA was great and so was Dr. P would highly recommend, I felt very comfortable discussing myself.
The front office staff was kind and efficient. My wait was less than five minutes. Once in the room, I was seen by the doctor within 10 minutes. Dr Padwardhan was kind, thorough, and addressed my long list of questions and concerns. Overall, my experience was a pleasant one.
She really listens to any concerns big or small. I appreciate her knowledge and her professional but relaxed demeanor.
I honestly would not recommend this doctor, I saw her a year ago and it was time for my annual again. I made one appointment, requested the time off from work then was called a few days before that they had to cancel my appointment because they didnt realize the time slot was still on Zocdoc.... So I rescheduled for a few weeks later, They call me the day before and cancel on me again.... So once again I book the appointment, the day of the appointment comes I drive 45 minutes there, Go in, sign my papers, even go in an did a urine sample. They then sit me back in the waiting room to go back, the girl calls me to the desk to tell me that they have to reschedule me because the doctor has to leave on emergency. I was dumbfounded. This time I actually made it all the way there and they literally cancelled on me while I was there. Never again and I would never recommend this practice to anyone.
I really liked both doctors I visited with today. Staff was friendly and will definitely make this my regular doctor. Only complaint was the wait time.
Even though I have gone to this practice for many years, this was my first time seeing this doctor and it was a great experience. She was up to speed on my medical history, was friendly and attentive, and took as much time as I needed when discussing my concerns. I would highly recommend Dr. Patwardhan.
Knowledgable and professional
I had an EXCELLENT experience with Dr. Patwardhan. I booked her on zocdoc and had read that the wait time can be pretty bad. My appt was at 2:30 and I had another appointment in north Boulder at 4:30 so I called the office to ask their opinion on scheduling for the wait time. They let me know that if I just came in 30 minutes before my appointment to get paperwork done then everything would fall into place on time! Sure enough, I showed up at 2, filled out my paperwork and was sent back to my room at 2:34 and Dr. Patwardhan was in to see me by 2:40. Once I met with her she was wonderful - she was very personable and friendly and she was sure to cover all of my options so that I was well-informed before making a decision for my health. I was out of the office and on my way to north Boulder even with time enough to run a quick errand before my 4:30 appointment! I had a very positive experience and will definitely choose to see Dr. Patwardhan in the future!
Best experience with an obgyn in 15yrs! She was very personable and talked to me before I was undressed. That is such a plus! They also let me give anytime sample immediately which was nice compared to waiting forever when you are miserable. The whole experience - which included a long consultation, an exam, and blood work was only 45 min! Would definitely recommend.
Helpful, knowledgeable, and great!
Dr. Patwardhan was lovely and knowledgeable. That said, I have reservations about recommending the office in general, as I wasn't even taken back to a patient room until 45 minutes after my appointment time. How about a "so sorry for your wait!" Also, wasn't sure what to do after the doctor left the room (copay? where is checkout?), and no one really seemed to offer any guidance. I finally interrupted someone on the phone to ask. Overall, a neutral experience. Meh.
Very thoughtful and thorough!
Awesome experience with everyone in the office. In and out In under an hour, very professional yet welcoming. Great experience!!
Dr. Patwardhan, and all other office staff, were exceptionally professional and knowledgable, and I have complete trust in her assessment and recommendations! They also took care of my needs in a timely and thorough manner, and made sure to schedule a follow up as well to make sure all is well.
She's awesome. It was my first time there & she was personable & easy to talk to. Also, the staff is really nice & easy-going. Overall good experience.
Being a new patient, Dr. Patwardhan met with me before my examine and talked to me about any concerns that I had. I was very impressed with her friendliness and professionalism. Would definitely recommend.
Dr. Patwardhan, including the nursing staff and sweet girls out at the front desk, have always been professional and friendly! They put any nervousness I have about going to the doctor at ease. Dr. Patwardhan and the group of staff she works with are exceptional! I highly recommend her to anyone looking for an OB/GYN . You are not just a number in line waiting to be seen. I felt like the doctor listened to my concerns and answered all of my questions.
She addressed the issues I presented to her with a clear explanation and plan of care. She in no way made me feel rushed.
My visit with Dr Patwardhan was very thorough and as a new patient from out of state I felt very comfortable discussing my medical history with her. Although my wait was quite long I am sure this was a misrepresentation of their typical wait time due to the fact that we were in the middle of the season's first snowfall and several patients were behind their scheduled arrival time. Don't let the wait time I listed scare you away, it was worth the wait.
The entire staff was warm and welcoming and very professional.
It was a good visit. She remembered details about me that caught me by surprise. I appreciate that personal touch. I feel like she really listens to me and cares about my concerns.
Everyone was friendly and it didn't feel like an assembly line. I would recommend this doctor to others.
Dr. Patwardhan sat down with me and answered all of my questions. She was patient and I did not feel rushed. She talked me through my procedure for this visit and let me know what I should expect. I would highly recommend her! Her staff was very kind and helpful as well. I work in the healthcare industry and I know the unfortunate side of becoming a "number". I felt very much like I was treated as an individual.
She was really nice. She took time to get to know me before, and she answered all my questions with great details. All of the staff was really nice and professional. Highly recommended!
She was friendly and very knowledgeable. She treated me very respectfully, answered all my questions, and laid out a treatment plan that sounded very resonable.
Got more results then I would have with another doctor I had been seeing
It was great. She had great bedside manner, very professional and knowledgable. She didn't make me feel uncomfortable for asking questions. I would highly recommend her.
Over all, she's a great doctor. Very professional, and really makes sure you're taken care of. Not the warm, fuzzy, buddy-buddy type, but she's down-to-business and great at what she does. To make things even better, the office is run like a well-oiled machine. he staff is very friendly, everything's clean and well-decorated, and the treatment options are modern and up to date. My only real complaints were: 1) The wait time- but I think that's mostly because I always opt for early morning appointments. I think I got there before my doctor... 2) Doctors at this practice ONLY deliver at Rose Medical. If you're pregnant, make sure you make sure you're ok delivering at Rose, otherwise you'll need to make major changes midway through your pregnancy. 3) They do abortions here. Some people don't care, but I'm very pro-life, and it made me a uncomfortable to learn that the people taking care of my unborn baby had no problem going into the other room and disposing of someone else's. All in all though, I totally recommend Dr. Patwardhan. She's a great doctor.
Amazing doctor with a great bedside manner. I highly recommend her.
She was amazing beautiful and helpful!!!! I was comfortable with her right away. I am making her my permanent obgyn absolutely!
It was very good and satisfactory.
It was good except the wait time was WAY longer than I expected. it was almost an hour after my appointment time. Other than that, I was happy with the appointment.
