This is about my appointment with Daniel Paniagua, PA on the afternoon of Friday, September 16. The actual appointment went fine. The meeting took place over the phone and Daniel immediately emailed me a PDF of my blood and urine test results from Sept 1. We went over the results and the major concern was that there were signs of a bacterial infection in my urine test. Since there’s no obvious infection, Daniel suggested that I might have gum disease and I agreed because my gums bleed when I floss. I also told him that I am urinating much more often than in the past, so he recommended that I make an appointment with a urologist. It turns out that I already made such an appointment; it’s scheduled for about 3 weeks from now. Since I have had a rash on both my calves since January and a DVT in my right calf, he recommended that I see my vein specialist at NYU Medical Center, which I did this morning. I also made an appointment with my dermatologist and a dentist. The major complaint I have about this appointment with Daniel Is that he was very LATE. The appointment was scheduled to be an online doxy.me meeting at 3:30 PM and I sat in front of my computer for 40 minutes and he finally called me on my cellphone at 4:10 and we had the conversation over the phone. Dr Paniagua was also extremely LATE for the in-office physical I had on Friday, Sept 1. I was shown to an examination room almost immediately by a courteous young woman, but then I waited almost an hour for Daniel to show up. I appreciate it if Dr Paniagua is spending a long time with patients earlier in the day, but there must be some way for Midtown Health to resolve this problem — perhaps call or text patients to tell them that the doctor is running behind schedule?
