Review of Dr. Napoletano

- in Vernon, CT |

RUN FROM THIS BUTCHER SURGEON!!! I went to him on a recommendation from my PCP for expediting the healing of 2 small cuts on my left leg, so I could swim in the ocean during the summer. In just 2 visits, he turned 2 small cuts covered w/band aids into an ER visit where I was diagnosed w/ACUTE CELLULITIS, due to his GROSS INCOMPETENCE. I could have LOST MY LEG! The "doctor" sent me to a wound center, where six months of treatment barely cleared it up. HE IS INCOMPENT & NON-CARING! RUN!!!c

Review of Dr. Posner

-CT |

Worst bedside manner of any doctor I've had to deal with. He was rude, rough during the procedure, and it was my first time getting stitches. I called the office ahead of time to ask if I could bring a family member with me to help keep me calm, as I have an actual phobia of stitches, despite how unreasonable my fears, a doctor should be sympathetic. He kicked my aunt out of the room just before the procedure, and I had an all out anxiety attack.

Review of Dr. Posner

He was helpful, informative and kind. I had gallbladder surgery with him and I'd sure recommend him to anyone as a great surgeon.

Review of Dr. Posner

- in Newington, CT |

Dr. Posner was nice enough but, when I called back to (a) get my MRI results and (b) discuss potentially changing the treatment plan based on the MRI results, no one ever returned my call. If I hadn't called another of my doctors to see if he'd gotten the results, I might still be waiting to know what the results were (MRI was in March, it's currently July).
