Patient Reviews

  • "Dr Panzara has many many patients. She is extremely knowledgeable. However I have changed oncologists because her staff is extremely rude and I will not return."
      from BARBARA 4.0 Stars - (2024-07-10)
  • "I don’t understand the process here. I come in for my blood and I take my blood and then I don’t get results for a while- so why not have people take the blood before they come to the doctor instead of literally going for a blood test appointment and you never see Dr Panera you always see a different PA."
      from Jennifer 2.0 Stars - (2024-07-04)
  • "On time. Everyone is patient-focused. Obviously care for individuals. Responsive, listens and explains in understandable language with concern for patients’ questions and comfort. Well managed and efficiently handled. Only issue is difficulty to safely maneuver entrance and exit to office if patients’ mobility is limited."

  • "dr.Panzera is a grate doctor. I'm her patient for 18 years. She is very attentive, thorough and knowledgeable. Always makes me feel good. Everybody in the office is very nice and professional especially her assistant Valery. Nobody can take my blood test like her. I don't wish anybody get sick, but if you ever need a doctor that's the medical office to go to"

  • "The service is really going down"
      from Billy 1.0 Stars - (2024-06-22)
  • "I saw Dr. Panzera for the first time yesterday. She took so much time to explain to me my diagnosis, my pathology, and my map for treatment. She was very informative and took great care to make sure I understood everything. Dr. Panzera seems exceptionally knowledgeable and up-to-date on the latest research and I found it very comforting to know that she is on top of the newest courses of treatment. Beside all this, she was very kind and patient."
