Is a great doctor and very sensitive to your care and treatment . Treats you more like a friend than a patient in terms of talking about your care . I really like Dr. Cohen as my dr.

Review for Dr. Cohen

Dr. Spar was my primary doc from around 1997 until I moved out of state in 2018. She listens and cares, and I always found her to be accessible and helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

Dr. Quinn is what Marcus Welby would be if he was a whole lot smarter and a woman. She is by far the best doctor I have ever met.

Dr. Rabe is a quack who should have retired years ago. I've never seen such an arrogant and inattentive psychiatrist.

Review for Dr. Rabe

Dr. Hersh is extremely knowledgeable, thorough and caring. She takes the time to answer questions to my satisfaction. There may be a wait to see her but I expect that from a doctor who is this awesome!

Review for Dr. Friedes

I have recommended Dr Racine. She is careful, bright, thorough and extremely knowledgeable . I have been a patient of hers for 25 years, have had several medical issues needing attention and am grateful for having had her as a PCP!

Review for Dr. Racine

While in the recovery room, after a painful colonoscopy, she said I had HIV colitis and added "I would need to talk to the "AIDS people." as she abruptly walked away from me. I was not HIV positive, I did not have HIV colitis, in fact, I had Crohns disease.

Review for Dr. Rabe

Dr. Spar is the best doctor I've ever had. She is always prepared to answer any questions and she reviews my chart before she sees me, so she is very familiar with my medical issues.

Review for Dr. Spar

I saw him once so far. He was friendly and helped me to clean ear wax. It was a bit harsh (and my ear bled afterwards) but I suppose that is ok. I can hear better now. I will soon see him for my sinusitis as well.

Review for Dr. Suarez

Dr. Carbonara is intelligent, kind and extremely compassionate. After having a cold and uncaring doctor for years, I was so happy to meet Dr. Carbonara. When she told me she was leaving her practice to become the director of the weight and wellness center, I cried. She is an A+.

Suzannah Damaa in Medford, MA - Sep 21 2018

Review for Dr. Carbonara

He is the Dr., to go to if you have ADHD. He is also very well read about how women are underdiagnosed due to inherent biases in experiment designs and often we women are told we have bipolar disorder because ADHD symptom manifests differently in boys and girls.

Review for Dr. Rabe

Unsympathetic and condescending. Does not like to answer questions and treats patients with distain.

George Jun 13 2018

Review for Dr. Trnka

Unknowledgeable, NEVER follows up. thinks way inside the box, his goal is to get you out of the office… the referral system is RIDICULOUS… you’d be better off with a google search of your symptoms… very typical of atrium heath!

Great Doctor! Dr Friedes took care of me during my whole pregnancy. He was excellent. Nothing bad to say. I highly recommend him.

Review for Dr. Rabe

Dr. Friedes wasn't helpful and even though my IUD wasn't properly placed he wouldn't schedule a procedure to remove it for two months.

Review for Dr. Friedes

The best, kindest, smartest and most compassionate dr. She is wonderful, takes time, listens, sees patient. Never had a better doctor.

Review for Dr. Thompson

He was great and very accommodating. I am an adult with ADHD inattentive type and he was very much on my level and wanted to hear everything I had to say. Probably one of the best psychiatrists I’ve ever had, and I’ve been treated for my ADD for 15 years.

Melanie in Boston, ma - Feb 02 2018

Review for Dr. Rabe

Very nice lady, but not thorough. She was unprepared for my physical. She did not review my family history and as a result was making recommendations that would adversely affect my health.

I have seen Dr Iannuzi a few times in the past couple of years. He is always professional, prepared and friendly. Has a calm demeanor that makes me feel at ease. I trust his judgement and highly recommend.

Review for Dr. Bae

Dr. Suarez is my son's pediatrician since birth. Besides being a great doctor, he is prudent, informative, and a trusted advisor.

Brookline, MA - Apr 04 2017

Review for Dr. Suarez

Dr. Dowling is very knowledgeable and her diagnostic skills are excellent. She is not annoyed by an educated patient and will discuss all concerns. She also has a pleasant manner.

Happy patient in Wayland, MA - Jan 16 2017

Review for Dr. Dowling

This physician has her own agenda which takes over any patient's concerns. Her reasoning is bizarre and aims at those who can't read and do any research. Poor diagnostic skills as she is not really interested in helping people. Avoid this provider.

SHAWN YARD in BROCKTON, MA - Jan 04 2017

Review for Dr. Buzanis

Dr. Suarez did not showed kindness and professionalism. Since the beginning of my appointment he did not greet us and at the end left the office without saying bye, nor asking about doubts I would have about my baby, who he barely turn to see. He was so rude.

Jose Quintero in Boston, MA - Jul 29 2016

Review for Dr. Suarez

Dr. Sridhar is consistently thoughtful and thorough. She is neither alarmist nor is she unconcerned. Rather, she finds that fine line that constitutes thoughtful care. She also has an excellent sense of humor.
