This doctor seems to be in a rush all the time and in a bad mood ; she does not care about if you have questions or not and if you have some doubts about your treatment or illness she gets upset like she does not want to give any explanation she acts like she is wasting her time with you.No validation for parking; the parking is always full and you have to pay for it.

I have been Dr. Denysiak's patient since 1996. I have no complaints. If I have something going on, she gets to the bottom of it quickly by sending me for tests. I never have to prove to her I'm sick, like other doctors who treat you like you're lying to get meds or something. She's been nothing but nice to me over the years. I will continue to be her patient!

Awful practice! Dr. seems apathetic, her reception is unhelpful and ill mannered, there are long (45+ min) wait-times, and follow-up is disorganized. Felt like they try to run as many people through the door as possible and up-sell medications. Also they say above that there is parking BUT though they do have a lot, they do not validate! Be sure to bring $3 to park in their lot, or quarters to park in a metered spot.I wouldn't recommend this office to my worst enemy. For the true picture of how Dr. Denysiak runs her practice, be sure to visit her Yelp page where 18 out of 20 reviews list 1 star and everyone has the same complaints.

Well, there are several things I'm looking for when I seek out a family doctor. I look for professionalism, efficiency, compassion, and quality care. I was hesitant at first to go to Dr. Denysiak because of all of the negative reviews I've seen. I didn't have much of a choice as I had just moved to San Diego and preferred a female doctor (she was one of the few accepting new patients). I quickly realized by the smile of the receptionist and the ease of getting into see Dr. Denysiak that those reviewers must be bitter, spiteful people. Dr. D was gracious, smart, and listened well and was absolutely insightful into my worries and concerns. She told me she would help counsel me if I didn't want to go to a psychiatrist about my recent divorce, etc. etc. She diagnosed me with Major Depressive Disorder and put me on SSRI and throughout the following 2 months, she always supported me and helped me get to a good place. I also feel confident about her well woman exams, she's mastered it down to an art form. I usually get anxiety whenever I get Pap smears and pelvic exams. Dr.D put me at ease and was calm and professional. I'm thankful to Dr. Denysiak and her staff-- the nurse, Selena(?) is absolutely great! The only complaint I could possibly have is that sometimes the Secretary puts me on hold for too long. But at least the hold music is fun! Now, I'm just babbling. Well, I definitely recommend Dr. Denysiak to my best friend or anyone for that matter. Cheers and God Bless You.
Tips & Advices
An osteopathic physician practices a comprehensive form of medicine that takes a holistic approach to a person's health. Instead of specializing in one system or set of organs, an osteopathic specialist focuses on the health of the total body. This includes evaluating environmental factors that affect a person's well-being.
Many family doctors deliver babies, especially in rural areas without a nearby OB/GYN. However, most family doctors only deliver for low-risk pregnancies and do not perform cesarean sections.
Family nurse practitioners are highly educated nurses able to provide medical care individually or with the assistance of another professional. Family nurse practitioners obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and then take the National Council Licensure Examination to begin working as a registered nurse. Then, they continue their education and obtain a Master of Science in Nursing. Following that, they become certified in family practice via the American Nurses Credentialing Center of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, allowing them to become certified family nurse practitioners.
Some family doctors provide immunizations while others do not. Typically, doctors who work as part of a large practice are more likely to offer vaccines in-house. Doctors in offices of one to two physicians are more likely to refer patients to a public health department or other immunization provider.
A physician's assistant is a person qualified to perform routine medical services. This individual is professionally licensed and certified, but they may not have the extensive med school education of a doctor.That said, PAs do complete almost three years of postgraduate study and more than 2,000 hours of rotations.
