Review of Dr. Goldsmith

-PA |

I found Dr Goldsmith very rude in dealing with my sick 7 year old granddaughter. She became frustrated and impatient when my granddaughter did not cooperate and at one point stated " I don't have time for this". I don't think I've ever dealt with a physician with such POOR bedside manners. Hopefully we will never have to see her again. Very disappointed with her care!

Review of Dr. Rosenthal

- |

All 4 of my children are seen by Dr.Rosenthal. We have been going to her for 7 years and I couldn’t be more happy! The relationship she has with each of my children is great!! They trust her, are comfortable with her and look forward to seeing her. She stays very active and informed in each of my children’s health and never do I feel like I have to remind her of anything. She takes mine and my husbands questions and conerns in mind when making re recommendations. She’s the best!

Review of Dr. Rosenthal

-Orefield, PA |

As others have said I find her to be very condescending. I left crying after my first visit when she told me “my infant needed to be taken off breastmilk immediately as his feces was riddled in blood.” I went back despite my initial concern, as I feel all should be given second chances. Again she made rude comments and did not show any empathy instead her demeanor was arrogant and judgemental. I would never recommend a mother trying to do the best by her child to this doctor.

Review of Dr. Goldsmith

-Bethlehem, PA |

Not good with adolescent patients. Does not listen to concerns or offer options. Very cold and not particularly thorough. In the past, teen visits with other docs in this practice included a conversation with the teen, separate one with the parent(s) and then 1 all together. That did not happen here. It's a critical time in a child's life to know that her doctor has her back and is in partnership with parents. If this is not something that interests her, she should not take teenage patients.

Review of Dr. Rosenthal

-Allentown, PA |

Rude and condescending. Don't you dare ask a question and/or try to be an active participant in the health care decisions of your child. Also, don't expect her to remember what she said or the plan that was made at your last visit- don't even bring it up. Do as your told with no questions, even if you've received contradictory information, just say ok and go with whatever plan she's made up for the day.

Review of Dr. Shah

- in Allentown, PA |

Dr. Shah has been my son's doctor since birth and I couldn't ask for a better pediatrician. She is caring and personable.

Review of Dr. Rosenthal

- in Bethlehem, PA |

Took my daughter to her because she was dry heaving, nauseous and headachy. Told the doctor that she has a history of acid reflux. She then proceeded to argue with me about how my daughter might be depressed for 20 minutes. She ended the argument with saying she did not know what else she could do for her. I find Dr. Rosenthal arrogant and not a very good listener.
