Review of Dr. Iannuzzi

- in Richmond, KY |

Careless Took my 3 month old to the ER for wheezing, wet cough and high fever. Without doing any bloodwork or further test, he diagnoses her quickly with Nonallergic Rhinitis. I knew this diagnosis was wrong and he was careless so I brought her back a couple hours later when she couldn't breathe again and Dr. Turley seen her this time. He diagnosed her with RSV after doing bloodwork. She was admitted to UK and placed on oxygen for 2 days because it was staying in the 80's. My child could have d

Review of Dr. Hamdan

-Durham, NC |

I would never recommend this doctor to anyone. He's rude and cold. He talks at you, and not to you. In my opinion he suffers from small man syndrome and he's trying hard to overcompensate.

Review of Dr. Hamdan


He is the worst doctor I have ever had contact with! He has no idea what he is doing and little knowledge of being a doctor! Terrible followup while in hospital! Would not recommend him for my dog!

Review of Dr. Heyman

- in Oxford NC |

Dr. Heyman is a fantastic Dr. and has been wonderful to my father and our family during his treatment for Lymphoma. I can't say enough about his caring personality and the way he follows up with his patients during and after treatment. Forever grateful for his care.

Review of Dr. MacLaurin

-Durham, NC |

Dr. MacLaurin was my attending ob-gyn throughout my pregnancy, and she did not follow-up when I was found to have low iron. During my labor and delivery I lost a lot of blood, and my blood count went to low, and I passed out and almost died. I had to receive a blood transfusion, which was ordered by a doctor from another practice. She told me later, very nonchalantly, "oh well next time we would make sure we made a note that you had low iron and we would monitor right from the beginning.."

Review of Dr. Balmadrid

-Durham, NC |

This doctor was the attending physician at the time I was in the ER for a "simple" procedure in 2014 which turned out to be complicated. I never laid eyes on the man and was seen by a physician assistant. I should have walked out on he, the hospital and the physician assistant. I had to return less that 24 hours because of complications. Was admitted for a few days and eventually had to have my left finger amputated a month later. Do they care? No they don't. I will never forget this name.

Review of Dr. Hurwitz

-Chapel hill , nc |

The most unpleasant and horrible experience I have ever had in my life with a DR I ever seen. She didn't seem to care what my concerns were and obviously didn't seem to care to look at my records before seeing me. Very rude and terrible bedside manner. If the rating starts from negative she definitely deserves a couple of them but they don't allow you to do so, the worst you could give is a one star which she doesn't deserve.

Review of Dr. Highley

-Raleigh, NC |

Dr. Highley is easy to talk to and doesn't seem to rush you through appointments. She is very easy to get in touch with through the patient portal.
