Highly rated, but not sure why
Self-verified patient of Dr. Carol M Grabowski - Posted on June 3rd, 2010
This practice is a breast cancer cheerleading squad, which gets darned annoying. The receptionist, Kate, is over-the-top in her cheery insistentgreetings. The physician is quick to grab her prescription pad for pain pills and sleep aids, whether the patient needs or wants these. Despite weekly requests to use my name, the physician continued to use my last name and title. Bored? Overworked? Distracted? She doesn't want to spend her time listening. She's easy on the eye, crazy about her family, and not much interested in the patient sitting in her exam room.
