SHC Patient, Jun 2019

Felt that provider did not listen to or acknowledge my concerns. Provider talked very fast and felt rushed the entire time, did not care to ask or carefully understand my condition. Provider did not seem to show urgency for my health issue, therefore I am switching providers.

SHC Patient, May 2019

It is clear Dr. Pagano is a smart, knowledgeable dr. She is not warm, she does not get to know the patient. She cares about keeping her apt. on time. I am not a complete "picture" to her; I am a "check list". Will be looking for a new PCP. So will my husband.

SHC Patient, May 2019

Dr. Pagano is an excellent physician. She is caring, gives me good information so we can make informed decisions together, let's me know under what conditions I should call for followup

SHC Patient, May 2019

I wanted to take this time to fill this out because I thought very highly of Dr. Pagano.

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

Dr. Pagano is terrific!

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

She got down to business with pertinent questions, did an assessment of my range of motion and pain level. From then suggested a very reasonable treatment plan and further diagnostic work up.

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

She arrives at a diagnosis very quickly. I have not been confident that she listened to me well enough to make her diagnosis and have it be accurate.

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

Wonderful M.D. I wish that she would be allowed more time with each patient.

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.

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.

SHC Patient, Oct 2018

An excellent practitioner - efficient, knowledgeable and caring.

SHC Patient, Oct 2018

Very professional yet personable.

SHC Patient, Oct 2018

Doctor spoke very quickly and was a bit brusque
