Have you seen Dr. Katrenka Rember?
Worst. Doctor. Ever.
Posted on October 20th, 2017
Dr. Rember was my doctor for several years until she prescribed a medication for me that both of us knew I was allergic to. She said it was a "new kind" and I should not have a bad reaction to it. I did. I almost died. She prescribed it again about a year later (I refused to fill the prescription), and accused me of "being on welfare" when I was on Medicare. She was more concerned with talking down to me like I was a child (I was a retired university instructor), rarely listened to my questions and when she did listen she rarely answered them, and seemed more concerned with keeping to her "15 minutes per patient" rule than actually taking care of her patient - me. I hope when she was treated for cancer that her physician was more human and more understanding to her than she was to her own patients.
The WORST doctor I have ever seen
Posted on January 29th, 2015
Quite literally the worst doctor I have ever seen. She is VERY rude and condescending. I am a VERY easy going person and do not take things personally, but a doctor should not behave the way she does. I asked her a simple, important question just to verify that I had heard her correctly and instead of simply saying, "yes, that is correct" she gave me a long speech about how science shows that we only hear about 50% of what we are told and that I needed to pay better attention while she is talking to me. Another time I went to see her about the possibility of arthritis in my thumb (which I could hardly move). She stood across the room, never even approaching the exam table I was sitting on and said, "Are you asking me to see a rheumatologist?" I told her I was asking her to take a look at my thumb. She started at me for a LONG time and said, "I have no idea what you expect me to do, did you want to see a rheumatologist or not?" When I said that I did not think that was necessary, she said that all they would do is give me pain pills any way, so why bother. A third time (I am a glutton, I know) I had a physical (she only does them every 2 years because she thinks they are not necessary) she refused to refill my steroid inhaler saying that it was, "only for people with REAL asthma". Needless to say, I have REAL asthma and after suffering for a few months, I found a new doctor. She seem to like the power she has in controlling her patients lives and NOT the power that she has to heal. NEVER AGAIN!!!!
Not concerned for patients health

I have seen Dr Rember a few times and every time I have seen her she's rude and doesn't listen to your concerns! I recently had a scare when my twin sister had a heart attack at 36, ( she's doing good now) however I was told by her doctor that I needed to get checked out! I went and saw Dr Rember, not only did she not listen to me about my exercise routine and eating habbits she proceeded to tell me I was obess! I had labs done and my Lipids did come back bad, I don't have insurance at this time and told her that! The only way she will talk to me or give me a perscription is if I go back into the office and pay another office visit! Seems to me that the next visit should be the end result of labs taken and should be covered by my last visit! I was told by her assistant that when I can afford to come back in they would talk to me then about my labs! I was also told that the office manager would call me to see if there was a way to help. Haven't received that call!

Office staff bills wrong having to correct and recorrect them each time I go in, doctor doesn't listen to me, gets grumpy because I came in for one thing and she wanted to do something else, barks orders at you, will not help you on one thing unless you do what she wants on a completely different matter, it seems to me her mood insinuates her diagnosis. I am changing doctors because I do not trust her judgement any longer.
