Was very impressed with the doctor and staff. One star off for not using the forms I filled out on Zocdocand having me fill out new forms. The staff told me (inaccurately) that the forms on ZocDoc are for ZocDoc and not the office. I don't mind when doctor's require that forms be filled out by hand, but they should turn off the feature in ZocDoc that lets patients submit forms online. Otherwise it's a waste of time for everyone.

Dr Packianathan was so great! I had brought previous allergy testing from years back to discuss my entire case history, and she diligently compared today's skin test results to my old ones and asked pointed questions. She was thorough and involvedme in the plan of care. Looking forward to my f/u!

Dr. P made extremely insensitive comments about a heart issue I had. She resorted to blaming me for being on a medicine that I take that made her ability to care for me slightly difficult, and claiming it was just amental illness and completely invalidated me. I spent half a year suffering greatly because doctors refused to accept that my heart issue was nothing more than anxiety, and for her to make those same claims made me doubt her ability to care for me. She is neither a cardiologist nor a therapist and she needs to be reminded of that. Her tone was harsh and unnecessary.

I really enjoyed Dr. Packianathan. There was a bit of a wait and the nurses seemed to be having some issues with their computer system that morning, but the treatments were efficient and Dr. Packianathan offered me affordable solutions.

I visited Dr. Packianathan to get an allergy test. She explained what she was doing throughout the process, checked on me a few times during the waiting period, and went over the results with me in detail. She also went througheach of my allergies and gave me specific options for treatment and ways to deal with them. Highly recommended!

Dr. Packianathan was prompt, professtional and very thorough. First she interviewed me, examined my skin and the conducted some tests. My problem we are monitoring but we think it should resolve soon. I will go back to her in a fewweeks for her to review this issue and another problem. Overall, it was a pleasant experience and I would definitely recommend her.
