Dr. Nayak comes with high recommendation so, I guess my situation was isolated. I felt that my desire to have all my [...] done through her rather than my other specialist really bothered her. I had a list of questions that were not addressed because when she came back into the room, she pretty much dismissed me. i was thoroughly disappointed with my whole experience.

I have been seeing doctor Alice Nayak for years and up until the last couple of years I would have given her the highest marks possible. Now she doesn't seem to have the same compassion she used to have. As I get older I'm starting to think I need to find a doctor that understands elderly issues better. I am in a lot of pain and I feel like she is saying "You have arthritis in your back and you just need to accept that this is the way it's going to be." I brought my adult daughter with me to my last appointment because I didn't feel like Dr. Nayak was really HEARING me about the pain I was in. She finally ordered an MRI and is sending me to a pain doctor. My daughter agreed with me about the doctor's attitude.

This was my first visit with my new provider. I couldn't have been happier. She was friendly, informative, always responding to my concerns. She also ordered a blood test that turned out to be very important to me and I was so happy that she did. And she immediately took action for me as a result of the test. I know I'm going to stay with this provider for as long as I can. She and I communicated briefly but efficiently via My Chart. And I was pleased with that tool as well.
