I never met a physician who schedules appointments when a patient needs routine documentation filled out. This doctor will not do anything for you if you don't schedule appointment time. Tries to avoid giving patients preventative booster shots and vaccines by claiming they never received patient immunization records ans says shots aren't necessary because they must have had them elsewhere! Money hungry and greedy!! Also says she us doing a referral to another specialist when in fact, the referral is never processed!
I complain to this doctor about a sore throat and swollen lymph nodes. She said to gargle with salt and water and I would be fine. The next day I woke up with fever, chills, my lip and tongue . A Doctor in the ER told me that my PCP would need to follow up with further blood test with and refer me to rheumatology. In fact 3 doctors said this including my best friend who is ER doctor in NYC and my Uncle who is a PCP in Texas. Dr. Pasha flatly refused saying that she had done enough blood work and that my illness were in my head. She is rude and doesn't listen. Suggest you find a doctor that doesn't automatically believe that they can right you off or who has parked themselves in an office in low income areas so that they can right off there patients as crazy wackos with illness in their heads!
Dr. Pasha has been my primary care physician for years. She takes the time to listen to me and let me know my options. She sincerly cares for her patients and if needed makes sure you come to the follow-up appointments. She explains the diagnosis thoroughly in a way the patient understand. Getting an appointment with her is never a problem and she has evening appointments for those who work during the day.
