Dr. Nayak is always a pleasure to see. I'm sure she is rushed for time but never makes me feel like she is cutting me short. She also makes it a point to either call or email me the results of any tests she orders.

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.

My care provider was very good in her skills, but I felt rushed during our appointment since she arrived over 20 mins late. She wasn't clear about her feelings towards a treatment plan that was hoping for. Had to leave a written message to her nurse and then got a call back where I verbalized my concerns. Then the nurse had to call me back and stated that they will try to write the order so insurance can cover the treatment plan. Stil haven't heard back from the person that I was inquiring about. I guess I will see!

Over many years I have seen both Dr. Alice Nayak and [...]. I love that I am able to see one or the other and they both know my medical history. They are both thoughtful, kind, and very knowledgeable about my health. My husband also sees them as well and is pleased. Over the years I have referred them both to many co-workers, family and friends. Every single person I have referred over, love them. Over the years of my life I have had health issues come up with surgeries and or injury and I always prevail and move on and succeed. This is because they are a great team and listen to what I have to say and know my health history and keep on top of it. This has made me be able to heal faster and go on with my career because I am on top of any health issue with their medical guidance.
