SHC Patient, Mar 2019

The best - intelligent, professional, kind, compassionate

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

Dr. Pagano gave me lots of information quite quickly, I would have appreciated having her slow down a bit. However, she gave me good print out notes with information.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

Good experience.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

MD very thorough.

SHC Patient, Jan 2019

I always feel just a bit rushed when I'm in the exam room with Dr. Pagano. She's very energetic.

SHC Patient, Jan 2019

very good diagnostician but overly rushed and overly clinical, business-like communications.

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

Good experience.

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

Super doctor - very caring & knowledgeable.

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

Didn't feel like Dr. Pagano was paying attention to anything I was saying. Didn't seem to care to talk through my options. Didn't understand that I valued getting better quicker, and willingness to do alternate healing options, versus waiting an indefinite amount of time for my injury to heal on its own.

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

Dr. Pagano talks very fast but everything she said I heard and retained all the information.

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

Dr Pagano is an excellent provider. She is professional, extremely professional and good a explaining things in a way I understands. Makes sure I know what to after leaving office by asking me questions and giving me written instructions

SHC Patient, Nov 2018

Caring. Genuine. Efficient, a little rushed, as all dr. now - spends time typing, looking @ screen.

dr Pagano appeared to know what she was doing, but was so rushed and did not try to connected with me. this was my first visit with her. she needs to slow down. at one point I asked her to slow down and I'm a health care provider. I can't imagine what other patients would feel!
