I felt like the doctor did not listen well, but seemed rather defensive.

Although the doctor was friendly and attentive, the appointment was very rushed. We covered many topics in a relatively short amount of time. When I left, I wasn't sure the main goal for my appointment - renewal of a prescription - was actually done.

dr Pagano is a wonderful doctor

SHC Patient, Jan 2017

GREAT experience. Dr. Pagano clearly is into sports herself and her experiences underscore her knowledge and you feel confident that she understands what you're experiencing. She personifies "if you're going to talk the talk, you've got to walk the walk". Loved her.

Excellent Experience

both Dr. Pagano and Dr. Ly (who handled the initial visit) were very good

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

Dr. Pagno gives me the tools to manage a healthy lifestyle. Her whole team are enabling care givers. They are professional and positive

SHC Patient, Nov 2016

Dr. Pagano clearly knows her stuff.. I had no issues with her ability to asses me or other patients..

SHC Patient, Nov 2016

Good.

SHC Patient, Nov 2016

The doctor recommended excellent therapy. The doctor was caring, supportive, sensitive and knowledgeable. Her communication was outstanding. She sent me home with documents to support and reinforced her presentation.

SHC Patient, Nov 2016

The doctor was a little rushed!

SHC Patient, Nov 2016

The availability of doctors at Menlo Medical if you need to be seen quickly is very poor

SHC Patient, Nov 2016

They were running late, and doctor felt rushed - they were really backed up. Appointment felt rushed and I didn't come away with all questions answered.

SHC Patient, Nov 2016

The physician made time to see me over her lunch hour the same day as I first attempted to schedule for evaluation of my injury. She covered all issues regarding my diagnosis and treatment VERY thoroughly. She was rushed because she had, I assume, other scheduled patients to attend to, however she exceeded my expectations in all categories asked about above.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

She was great, thorough explanations explaining my options and great skill during the injection.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

Dr. Pagano is thorough and also expresses empathy.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

Dr. Pagano is EXCELLENT! I have already passed out her card to a couple of friends. It's a shame there is such a time-pressure going on.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

It was very hard to say anything. The doctor did most of the talking (95%). I am not questioning the doctor's expertise but my feeling was she was not really interested in listening to me and wanted to get me out of there as soon as possible.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

very pleased with the care provided.

SHC Patient, Sep 2016

Very thorough and professional. Liked the fact that x-rays were taken to check for the problem.

SHC Patient, Sep 2016

I was very impressed with her, but she's very fast-paced and I would appreciate it if she'd communicate just a touch slower. She's very good, though!

SHC Patient, Sep 2016

Dr. Pagano is very dedicated to her patients & always goes through my health with a fine comb. Will always follow up with phone calls & emails.

SHC Patient, Aug 2016

Cristina Pagano is a warm, supportive and capable physician. I would recommend her very highly to my friends who have orthopedic problems and need advice and treatment. She is an excellent orthopedic physiatrist!

SHC Patient, Aug 2016

As said earlier they worked me in the same day and they Dr. Pagano spent a good deal of time with me, at least a half and hour or 40 minutes. I am sure I cut into her lunch break.

SHC Patient, Aug 2016

wow! the physician was fantastic! she is so smart! she knew exactly which muscles I had injured based on the short description I was able to tell her about my injury! her treatment plan is going well so far. I would highly recommend Dr. Pagano!
