Assistant male was very friendly and put me at ease. Doctor was the same and answered all my questions, gave me a chance to back out of procedure, and was very thorough. Only negative was I was not advised prior to the visit that I should have parked in a ramp, so instead, I paid for street parking many blocks away.

POSITIVE. I was a bit late and they were ready for me. It was a post-op visit. Everything was good as was the kindness and attitude of the doctor and assistant.

My initial appt was scheduled to last 20 min, but I had to wait 40 min and while my provider was fast and articulate, speed is not always beneficial

Her demeanor was calming, I was anxious about being inside because of Covid as I have not had anyone in my place since Covid started. I thought I was starting a panic attack, but as soon as the doctor walked in and started speaking my breathing became slower and more normal. Her prognosis was correct, as I've had this problem once before.

Comfortable with Doctor and felt she was listening to concerns. Refrained from using "medical" nomenclature and made her advice and diagnosis information understandable. Wonderful personality and glad to be her patient.

Dr Gadzala and staff are extremely professional, attentive, and good communicators. This visit was a follow up to surgery. Dr. Gadzala is a specialist and not my primary care doctor.

I called to see if my husband could accompany me and I was told "yes." When we got there, we were told in no uncertain terms, that he couldn't stay. I explained that we had permission and she calmed down somewhat, but she was still angry. She was not the one who gave me the 'yes' answer.

Everybody was clearly helpful with information that I needed to make decisions. My frustration was at the reception desk where I could hear but not understand. I am hearing handicapped, no hearing one ear, 30% other ear with hearing aid but she did not consistently use voice enhancer. Of course, that lowers patient privacy as other patients hear. How can this be addressed? Otherwise - she was great.

I feel well cared for visiting Dr. Gadzala. I don't feel rushed to get in adn out. Her nurse is exceptional; caring and engaging. I especially prefer the Emanuel Mendical Center location because it is less busy and the receptionist is proficient - I trust Dr. Gadzala.
