My son has been under the care of Dr. Don Paoletti for seven years now. He has absolutely been a God-send...an answer to prayer. He has seen us through the highs and the lows. I have my own issues and have been under the care of many psychiatrists in various settings and Dr. Paolettti is by far the BEST! He is incredibly caring and attentive to both the patient and parent. I knew my son was in good hands at our first visit when Dr. Paoletti addressed my son and talked to him before he acknowledged me. He does this at EVERY visit! This helped my son, who doesn't trust easily, to trust him almost immediately. He truly listens to what we have to say and I never get the feeling that he's checking out mentally or that he's ready to get rid of us. When it comes to course of treatment, including medications, he takes the patient and parent's feelings into consideration when making his decisions, making it feel like it is a collaborative effort. Making appointments is easy, and we never have to wait more than a few minutes when we arrive. He is wonderful about returning important phone calls between visits when necessary. There are not enough words to express the gratitude I have that God sent us to Dr. Paoletti!
I first visited Dr. Kendrick in 2006 after an automobile accident in 2005. I have to say without a doubt, I have never known a doctor that shows so much compassion and truly wants his patients to heal. I have personally had the opportunity to know his staff too. The office manager, Jim, is the best and everyone from the office staff to the N.P's. have been the most professional and have the sweetest nature. Next time anyone wants to give Dr. K. anything other than 5 stars, remember Dr. K. is one of those doctors that does not set an alarm when he comes in to visit with his patients. Dr. K knows your name and will sit and talk with you and answer any questions you have. Dr. K. and his staff helped me get into nursing school and he wants each and everyone of his patients to grow. The next time anyone gets upset because they have to wait----remember how much time he spent with YOU..
Dr Kendricks and his staff are always very friendly and helpful. I first started going to him after discovering I had several back issues in my lumbar area. He has helped me tremendously. He has made my pain level manageable. Yes sometimes I have waited for over an hour to see him but it is so worth it. He is very compassionate and I have never felt rushed when talking to him. I hope I am able to visit im for years to come because my condition will not get better only worse and I want to manage my pain as long as possible without surgery. A BIG THANKS TO YOU- DR. MICHAEL SCOTT KENDRICKS AND YOUR STAFF!!!!!
