“He just basically had me get a needless barium X-ray, and then eventually prescribed me some expensive pills (Prilosec), which I'd be expected to take for the rest of my life.”
An Excellent Physician. I went to Dr. Dannehl on the recommendation of several friends. I couldn't have made a better choice. He's everything you'd hope to find in a physician: he listens, he's compassionate, and can explain in simple terms his diagnosis and recommendations. If you're looking for a new doctor he's your man.
Fantastic healthcare provider.
Dr. Dannehl is a fantastic Doctor. He is kind and caring but most importantly he is looking out for my health. I had some recent issues that prompted him to send me to a heart specialist and he has been great about working in partnership with that specialist to give me the VERY BEST care and options.
I have been trusting him with my healthcare for 8+ years and highly recommend him.
Please go elsewhere.
I've been a patient of Dr. Dannehl's for a few years, but I've finally had enough. Although Dr. Dannehl is generally likable, he's incompetent. Here are two examples.
I first saw Dr. Dannehl concerning some symptoms I'd been having in my esophagus. He correctly diagnosed my problem as acid reflux. However, he never asked me about my diet. He just basically had me get a needless barium X-ray, and then eventually prescribed me some expensive pills (Prilosec), which I'd be expected to take for the rest of my life. After doing some research, I discovered that pills such as Prilosec are a band-aid, not a cure. They do nothing to solve the real problem and in the long run can cause a lot of harm. Anyway, I stopped taking the pills. Then I changed my diet and eventually lowered my carbs, and now I rarely have problems with reflux. But Dr. Dannehl was of no help in diagnosing the real problem.
A little over a year ago, I had some lab work done. Even though my glucose level was in the pre-diabetic range, Dr. Dannehl called it "normal." So, I had to do my own research and schedule another appointment with him. I pointed out that my glucose level was NOT normal and wanted further testing. He obliged, and the new results were the same. Guess what--he again called these results normal!!! He just told me to get a little more exercise, which was poor advice, because I was already getting a lot of exercise. After doing a lot more research (including paying for my own glucose meter), I discovered that my body cannot tolerate a lot of carbs, so I made some major adjustments. He gave me absolutely NO advice about lowering my carbs or changing my diet. If I'd listened to him, I would've probably ended up with diabetes in a few years. And then last month, I went back for another glucose test--and guess what? Even though they drew several vials, they forgot to test my glucose levels!!
Please do yourself a favor and find another doctor who is competent.
Great Doctor in Buckhead. Dr. Dannehl is a fantastic doctor. He is currently my doctor and has been for the past two years. You will never be disappointed with his abilities. In an effort to keep this short...he listens. On top of that, he's interesting, knows a lot about movies, food (where to eat) and bike riding. If you need a doctor, even if you have one...he's the best I've met.
Outstanding Internal Physician.......
I met Karl Dannehl when he was referred by a specialist to oversee my mothers treatment, post operative Atrial Septal....(well, she had a hole in her heart from birth). After she passed away in 1998 I started seeing Karl once or twice a year for high cholesterol and abnormal liver readings probably dating from a bout of Dengue Fever I got while Orchid hunting in Central America.
His kindness and thorough regimen has kept me in excellent physical condition ever since then. I had constant stomach and back problems. And though the back is a chronic condition I haven't had any stomach or related problems for years now.
Whenever I go to the Groups offices I'm always treated, as well all the other patients in the waiting area, with professional and caring concern. I would recommend any of the doctors at Piedmont Physicians Group from the talk I've heard in the waiting area, but would guarantee positive results from Dr. Karl Dannehl. I can't begin to say enough good things about him. I just thank God that we have met and a wonderful doctor/patient relationship has developed. In closing all I can say is:
THANK YOU DR. DANNEHL FOR BRINGING QUALITY BACK INTO MY LIFE.............
Great Doctor. I moved to Atlanta in June of 2001 and I was very unimpressed with my first doctor. My company's insurance provider changed and I had to choose a new doctor. I was lucky enough to have pick Dr. Dannehl. He is a fantastic doctor and he does a great job listening and communicating with his clients. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a new doctor for your everyday stuff.
