Dr. Pakula truly does care about his patients. I am a medical student that rotated with him for a month. I have seen plenty of doctors "behind the scenes" and he really does care for the patients that he works with. He makes an effort to remember details about peoples lives and to ask them about them when they come back. He knows his stuff but is not one to boast about it. An amazing physician and truly a pleasure to have been trained by!
Now that I have been forced to take an HMO due to my PFFS medicare advantage plan going bankrupt I must leave Dr. Pakula's care since his office does not accept my new plan. After being with him for 10 years it breaks my heart. This man is more than a terrific doctor. His personality always made me feel comfortable. Rarely did I ever feel rushed during an appointment and that is not easy when your only allowed 10 minutes. I am not sure how I will replace him but you do what you have to do.
