I am disgusted by her and her staff.
Self-verified patient of Dr. Geeta Patel - Posted on September 12th, 2019
Dr. Geeta Patel discriminates against women who are overweight. She was beyond rude to me. She suggested I go to a University Hospital to seek care as she did not have as she said...."the proper equipment to get a proper sample of my vaginal walls because I am too large." Yet she managed to scrape me and make me bleed and caused me a lot of pain. The next gynecologist that I saw asked me why I was there to see her. I explained what had happened and she said she was sorry that I was treated so poorly. The new gynecologist used standard equipment to do my testing and without any pain. I have been overweight all my life and never had a gynecologist discriminate me for my weight. I walk without issues, I fit a size 20 clothing, require no special needs with my weight. I fit in a car like everyone else and the steering wheel is far from my body. Even my seatbelt is loose as can be. I believe she is just a disrespectful individual. I have worked for a dentist that discriminated against patients that were overweight and ironically the doctor I worked for and the Geeta are from the same country. Is that a thing of theirs? Now that I need my records, they want $25.00 for them. Had she not been discriminatory, she would have still been my OBGYN. Beware of this doctor. She has no bed side manner and it is no wonder her overall rating is below 3 stars.
Very patient Dr

She shouldn’t be considered a doctor

I am pregnant with my first baby and when I got on Medi-cal this was the only doctor that took it in my area. Right from the first appointment I could tell I wasn’t going to get the care I needed. I am considered a high risk pregnancy but she doesn’t even make me feel like she genuinely cares about the health of my baby. She doesn’t really speak to you and when she does she doesn’t even look at you. I am currently 40 weeks pregnant and not once has she measured my stomach or really even given me any information on my baby. All she does is check that the baby has a heartbeat and then leaves. She makes me feel so rushed that I forget to ask questions. In my opinion, she should have never become a doctor in the first place.

DO NOT GO TO THIS DOCTOR

If I could give this "doctor" and her staff of "nurses" (or whatever their title is) fewer than one star I would. I should have trusted my gut instinct when I called to set up my first prenatal visit a couple of weeks ago, and whoever I was on the phone with was immediately rude an rushed with me. She would put me on hold for 5-10 minutes at a time to check what appointment slots were available, then she would tell me one option and want to hang up. I had to stop her twice and say "no, that time does not work, I am available at [insert time I said]." She proceeded to sound annoyed with me and kept putting me on hold to search the depths of Narnia for an appointment that fit my availability (my only requirement was that it be M-W after 1pm, WOW such a wild request!). Anyway, I wanted to switch doctors after I did go to my appointment because Patel was with me all of 30 seconds before throwing out a time frame for my return and bolting. I figured I would just finish up these first sets of lab work and move onto someone else. Sadly, I did not have time to change doctors before I began to miscarry. Without even a shred of sympathy or a furrow of her brow, Patel told me I was miscarrying in the most monotonous, hurried way possible. She asked if it was my first pregnancy, and I said yes. But then she gave me ZERO information about what exactly would happen once the baby and placenta and tissue finally came out. She even told me I could go back to work! But I asked for a note anyway (which she gave me, but only because I asked). I am SO glad I asked for one because two days later I miscarried and it was the most horrifying scene.... I received no preparation at all for that, not even a pamphlet, nothing. The entire conversation took LESS THAN 2 minutes (I recorded it, so I am not exaggerating), and she ran right out of the room without so much as a pat on the back. There weren't even any facial tissues in that godforsaken place. So after that, I walked out into the hallway, which faces the receptionist area. That area is not enclosed, so the receptionists or nurses or whatever were very much in ear shot. My sister was with me, and, since I was too distraught to event think of questions to ask, she managed to get a few more questions in before the doctor completely left the building. She asked what my chances were of another miscarriage, and she told us 50%! That is NOT accurate whatsoever, seeing as there were no complications and I ended up passing the baby naturally 2 days later (I did not even need a D&C). Anyway, at this point I just wanted to leave, so I go to the receptionist to set a follow up appointment for 6 days later, and she looked at me like I was embarrassing myself. HMMMM I wonder why a pregnant woman would be sobbing her eyes out at the OBGYN! Maybe it's because, as they heard since I was 2 feet away when the doctor was talking to us in the hall, I lost my first baby. Show a little sympathy! Maybe not look at me like I should man up. But no. Then she hands me a whole bag of PREGNANCY PAMPHLETS! Excuse me, I just LOST my baby, you inconsiderate twit! Fast forward to 2 days later: I am in excruciating pain (lower abdominal area). I call to ask if that is normal, and the person on the phone says to go to the ER. I say it is no problem, and she sets me up with a follow up for the day after. One would think that, given the emergency circumstances, the appointment I made before would be void, but back on that later. I go to the ER as soon as I can, which is about an hour and a half after I made the call (I had to take my step kids to a sitter, at which point I passed the baby, and that took about 20 minutes). While I am checking in, the doctor's office calls me. Why? To confirm the appointment I JUST MADE WITH THEM FOR THE FOLLOWING DAY. I said, "yes I just made that appointment two hours ago, I am in the ER right now." After all is said and done, I go home. Next day (when my new follow up was scheduled) I received not one but TWO PHONE CALLS about the previous appointment that was now irrelevant. The first call came and I just said to cancel that one since I would be in later that day. Then I get another phone call about the SAME appointment that I JUST CANCELLED. Needless to say, I finally lost it on the person on the phone and said that entire office is incompetent, which, from my experience thus far, they ABSOLUTELY ARE. She has my file in front of her, she knows WHY I am coming in, and she still decided she would get snippy with me. I hung up the phone. This was today, mind you. And now I am desperately trying to find a different doctor because I seriously canNOT go back to that hellhole. Losing my baby was hard enough without these heartless dumbsh*ts treating me like I just have a cold or something. DO NOT GO TO THIS PLACE if you have any regard for your emotional wellbeing and your pregnancy experience.
