Dr. P saved my life

If it wasn't for Dr. Podczaski, I would not be here to write this review. When I was first diagnosed, the general consensus of my medical team was that I had mere weeks to live and wanted to put me on palliative care only. Dr. P wouldn't hear of it. Two years later, I am alive and doing very well. Some people might find Dr, P's bedside manner a little stiff. But I don't care about that. I needed someone to believe in me and to heal me. Dr. P did. He is by far the most accessible doctor I have ever known. He gave my us his cell phone number, encouraging us to call anytime, day or night. And sometimes we had to do just that. One caveat: As a patient, don't expect Dr. P to read your mind. If you have questions, ask them. No question is too silly. This is your life. Ask away.

One Star

He was very brutal during his internal exam. I ended up bleeding a lot heavier when I left his office than I was previously. Due to his procedure I was also in extreme pain for the next 24+ hrs. He was very unprofessional and uncaring. He did not listen when I told him my preference on treatment. He only wanted to go with what he said he wanted to try. He did not address any of my questions or concerns. He treated me like I was stupid and an inconvenience. No one should ever have to go through what I just went through with him.
