Poor Communication, 10/14/2013

I wanted to be able to say positive things about this medical group but after 2 years of using this group, I just can't think of anything positive to say. The final straw came today when I called to... double check the time of my physical since I had not received the usual e-mail reminding me of the time. In August, I had to reschedule my appointment and the earliest time available was for October. I put that appointment on my calendar but apparently the person in appointments did not put it in the computer. The receptionist was able to look in the computer and tell me that she was the one cancelled it. I asked why she did not put me down on the schedule for the October appointment and she said she makes appointments all day and never makes mistakes. The next available appointment for a physical was not until December. She said she would e-mail the doctor to see if she could fit me in on the date I "supposedly" had an appointment and I would get a return phone call. I did get a return call by she sent the e-mail to the wrong doctor. I received a phone call telling me Dr. Winder would be available but she is not my doctor.. Dr. Pepper is my primary care physician. She has a good reputation within the medical community but I never felt that connection that made me feel that she truly cares about her patients.

Robot patients accepted!, 12/18/2012

Three consecutive yearly physicals and I requested skipping the EKG and CXR this last visit since all previous such tests(including the last two years)were normal, I have no symptoms, and my... insurance no longer pays for these at yearly exams. My doctor was visibly upset at the suggestion of questioning his order. Two months after this last physical my orthopedist recommended surgery requiring a medical clearance letter. Now this doctor refuses to provide me a clearance for surgery and the practice policy is I cannot change doctors in this practice. CATCH 22-BEWARE!

I don't get all of the bad reviews!

I guess just the unhappy people take the time to write reviews. I have been a patient of Dr Mellits for 15 years. From the beginning he has been great. The last few years I have only seen him for regular checkups but he remembers all of the details of my history and always takes time to listen. The staff always call back in a timely manner with test results. I use the online service for refills etc. I have never had to deal with them in an emergency situation. In those cases I go to the local "doc in the box" or the the hospital emergency room.

Rude and unprofessional

Employees equal kleenex to Laureate: i.e. use the kleenex then throw the kleenex on the ground. Katrin King, Laureate office manager, scheduled an interview with job applicant. The prospective employee was all dressed up and parking in the parking lot when Katrin King called to cancel the interview, 10 minutes before the interview. Rude and inconsiderate are two words to describe the Katrin King and Laureate medical group.

AWFUL

This is one of the worst doctor's practices I have ever been to. The nurse had such an attitude, they never even took my temprature or blood pressure when I am pregnant and came in with the flu. The PA just wanted to give me med's without properly examining me. Dr. Friedman just walked it, didn't even introduce himself, and didn't even examine me and started telling me a list of medicines to take. He didn't even care that I was pregnant. I asked if he was going to take blood tests to ensure it isn't bacterial and all my levels are ok, especially because I am pregnant. Nope! He was a joke of a doctor. I would NEVER recommend this place to my worse enemy.

Bad scheduling

Tried to schedule a sick visit with 102 fever, was told nothing was available for next 4 days. I guess they can not handle patients.

Inefficient Policies, Poor Service

I have been a patient of Dr. Wender's for several years. She is great, however she has an awful medical assistant that leaves me with an awful bruise every time she draws my blood. She is unfriendly and not knowledgeable at all. She does not even know how to pronounce simple/common medication names. I had the pleasure of seeing one of the N.P.'s in the midtown office and she was great. She gave me a recommendation of another provider in the group, so when I called to schedule an appointment, I was sent to the Office Managers' voicemail. (Because I wanted to change providers within the same practice?) This does not make any sense! I have managed medical practices my entire career. Now they won't let me schedule an appointment. I am requesting my records and going elsewhere. I am so disappointed in how this has been handled.

Could not get past being put on hold for 20 minute

I called to set up new patient information and was passed around and put on hold for 20 minutes. I really dont like being put on hold, especially when I might be one of their patients.. .."goodbye". ..... .... to Laureate

Great in all areas!!!!

If people would follow simple directions and order, their office visit WOULD be more pleasant. Laureate is not a "walk in" clinic, but they DO accomodate emergencies. The process is to CALL, not walk in, leave a message if necessary and the phone nurse WILL call you back within a reasonable time frame to tell you what to do! Same thing with refills, call follow office procedures!!! People wants things to happen "right now" but to avoid chaos and mixed messages, confusion and complaints just follow office policy and order, you are not the only one sick, in need of a refill, requesting copies of something, needing an appt and/or whatever else!!! The nerve of some people!!!

Love drs

Dr Bandakuala is smart and very warm. My husband sees Leaderman and he has great personal skills and is excellent medically. All the doctors we know go to this practice. The front office-receptionist on phone: not good. Annoying. But, worth it for highly competent and kind docs.

Inefficient and lazy ~

I have never even seen a Doctor here, but can not recommend them simply because their office staff are inefficient, rude and lazy. I called the day before, to cancel an appointment and was assured that it was cancelled. I asked for a confirmation # and was told that there wasn't one. Now I got a bill for $100 because I was a "no show". I have called numerous times to straighten this out with their billing office. Of course they have no record of my calls and refuse to spend time looking it up in their records. I will never recommend this practice to anyone, even tho it is very near my home and I do see other Dr's in the very same building.

Unfriendly, Rude

Unfriendly & rude nurse at the Peachtree Dunwoody office. She jabbed the needle into my skin to take the blood. No smile & absolutely no conversation! Dr. Relwani is young, but no smile & no talk. I had to ask questions to hear her voice. She said that she was sick herself, but she was on duty and I was a patient. I had to call after a week to get hear the results over the phone compared to other places where I get the results within two days with a friendly phone call! Another pain is to pay parking fee at the location!! Their website is of no use...looks like a middle school student developed it!

Ridiculous Policy

I hope you like the first doc of the 17 in the group that you see. I called to change docs and they told me to find another practice because "all the docs are same". This is their policy that you can't changed docs. Are you kidding me? Not a very smart way to practice medicine.

Impersonal

It is hard to get refills. You cannot get a human on the phone. The website is not user friendly. I have also had difficulty getting a return phone call from the doctors and/or staff. If you never have a need to communicate outside of an office visit, they are pretty standard. Nothing outstanding.

Docs who take the time

The MDs, PAs and NPs at this office take the time to diagnose you. You will not feel like a number. The wait can be long if you go at the end of the day. Try to get the early AM appts if you can. They office staff are great with your insurance submissions as well. Very good group.
