Review of Dr. Bartlett


(0 stars!) I completely agree with the person above “He’s one of the worst doctors I’ve had the misfortune of meeting!” He was prejudice and VERY rude. He did not care about what I wanted to do with my body and clearly didn’t read anything on my chart before meeting me. He was so unprofessional he left the room without saying anything! No goodbye, any last questions, not even a see u soon and he was supposed to do my surgery! I’ve never been treated this way by a health care profession! I’m shocked and disgusted!

Review of Dr. Liu


I attended for health screening, having recently transferred to Dr. Liu following the departure of my existing primary care provider. I found him impressively thorough and professional, no trouble seemed to much, and his approach was admirably courteous and concerned. He was also an excellent communicator.

Review of Dr. Liu


Horrible bedside manner, extremely rude and short. Possibly the most unpleasant doctor's visit I've had.

Review of Dr. Bley


I would not recommend him. He was horrible at follow up. The surgery experience was the worst I've ever had. Not enough beds, nurses being called away and dropping things. Worst of all at 2nd post OP visit I was told he could do nothing more for me. While seeing another surgeon for a second opinion, I was told cold laser would help with my swelling and healing. Why wasnt this offered directly after surgery? Or even later? I think his ego got in the way.

Review of Dr. Bartlett


This guy is a quack! All he wants to do is cut. I went in for a simple umbilical hernia that is healing and requested an ultrasound to monitor it and to avoid surgery. This guy refused to give me one. He only wanted to cut me open. He had no respect for what I feel is right for my body. A good doctor always works together with their patients not against what they feel is appropriate for their health.He's one of the worst doctors I've had the misfortune of meeting. Beware!

Review of Dr. Wong

-Somerville, MA |

I had a terrible experience with Dr. Wong who misdiagnosed my inflammation as scarring and left me with vision of 20/60 in my right eye. She rushed and had so little regard for my feelings telling me my vision was permanently damaged and she'd see me in 6 months. My intuition told me something about her was wrong and I decided to seek a second opinion at Mass Eye and Ear. They identified the inflammation and were able to treat me and get my vision back to 20/20. She shouldn't be practicing.

Review of Dr. Puncochar

-Cambridge, MA |

Dr. Puncochar is friendly and knows her patients well. She takes her time with her patients. You never feel rushed, but the flipside of that is that she's always running at least 30 min behind schedule, even if it's 9:30 in the morning.

Review of Dr. Angel

- in Boston, MA |

I write to you as a past Patient of Dr. Andrew Angel who says do not use him if you care about your health. I went in to see him on two different occasions complaining of shortness of breathe and minor chest pain over a period of about 18 months. He did a quick overall of my health and said everything was ok. I gave blood to check my cholesterol and triglycerides which was flagged in their system and he failed to notify me. I had a heart attack two weeks after my physical with him. Buyer beware.

Review of Dr. Bley

- in Boston, MA |

i had a torn rotator cuff for almost a year before I sought the proper treatment. I met with Dr Bley, he diagnosed my problem and I scheduled surgery. I felt extremely comfortable with him. Very pleasant bedside manner and highly skilled. I was amazed with the results of the surgery. Like there was never a problem!! I would definitely recommend Dr. Bley to family and friends without any hesitation.
