Specialties

Dr. Denise Octaviani has the following 2 specialties

  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

The Best Care Ever

I have been going to her for 3 years and she has changed my life. Especially with my chronic pain. She also has helped me get off an opioid addiction. I am very glad I found her. She listens and cares. She is only rude with people that are rude to her. She has always treated me with respect.

Unprofessional

I cant believe she still has her license.. I went to Dr. Octaviani for suboxone treatment and suboxone was all I received...No professional treatment, reguard for me, didnt make or push me to go to meetings.. Would briefly ask how I was doing and then cut me off and talk about her kids and what she did that week and so on. She was just a way to get Subs, 12mgs for 6 months wasnt cut down or mentioned once. If you want to go to a doctor for Subs and strictly that, no other care, she is the doctor. But dont expect her to abide by doctor-patient confidentiality, she has a BIG MOUTH and talks about patients to other patients, staff and whoever else. VERY unprofessional doctor its unbelievable to me she still practices medicine.

Those that write bad reviews of Dr.Octaviani are most likely those drug

Dr.Octaviani is nice if you're nice. If you're not nice, she won't tolerate you after she let you know that you have to change your behavior or will have to go. She treats normal people and drug addicts and she's over protective of her regular patients from her drug addicts patients. Drug Addicts always say bad things of her when she kicks them out of her Program which is one of the best but you have to be serious if you go to her. If you behave and are honest with her, she's very good at helping with your addiction. Honesty and manners are very important to her.

Rude

This was without a doubt the worst provider I have ever come into contact with. She was rude and completely unprofessional. The treatment that she provided me with was so bad I would go so far as to say it was criminal. I wrote a letter to OPMC and the AMA regarding her conduct. I don't believe she should have a license to practice medicine.
