Review of Dr. Trnka

-

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 of Dr. Rabe

-

My teenage son was a patient of Dr. Rabe a number of years ago. We had a few joint sessions and I found Dr. Rabe to be arrogant and sarcastic. I am surprised by the positive reviews, frankly. I will add that I enjoy a sarcastic sense of humor, but the way that Dr. Rabe used it was diminishing to all concerned.

Review of Dr. Spar

-

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 of Dr. Iannuzzi

-MA |

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 of Dr. Poylin

-

He is very smart and takes all the time you need. I have had him for years and will never switch...hope he never moves. He always remembers what we talk about and hugged me when I got bad news. Very sweet. like a dad type.

Review of Dr. Suarez

- in Boston, MA |

Pros: Dr Suarez was very respectful of time needed for informed consent with regard to vaccinations. He was mild mannered and his apt was punctual. Cons: his practice was not breastfeeding friendly and his nurse refused to let me nurse my baby as she received her shots. Also when my toddler cried after her shots he said “it’s not that bad” and intruded with her right to express her pain and fear.

Review of Dr. Schissel

- in Hyde Park, MA |

Dr. Schissel is the best Doctor for lung specialties! I have been with him for around 5 years now and have COPD. He takes the time to listen and works with you. Which you need. Being an ex-smoker his receptiveness to new or alternative ideas, he scores high on his openness and willingness to consider others’ input. He always makes me feel comfortable and I know I am in the best hands.

Review of Dr. Carbonara

- in Medford, MA |

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+.
