Never again! I won't be wasting my medical insurance or a penny more of my cash! Everyone here is correct. I only had 1 appointment and wish I had read these reviews beforehand! There is no one in the office on 12/28/17 and no indication of when the office will reopen! The answering service has no clue. Already got sent a $300 bill for a drug test that I probably agreed to in the paperwork. The P.A. simply stuck the saliva test in my mouth without informing me of what he was doing!

Review of Dr. Lodico

-Aliquippa, PA |

Worse doctor I have ever experienced when I actually did see him. You only saw him when you had an epidural done and you are constantly forced into getting them. They are painful and I cried and had trouble staying still because of they pain and he told me I had psychological problems and that I had to go see his psychiatrist and wouldn’t let me see mine anymore. I’ve worked in healthcare. I’ve never met a doctor who was so uncaring and downright mean. I’ve switched pain clinics.

If I could give 0 stars I would. APM is a joke. They only care about money. I have yet to meet this guy or any doctor actually. The PAs are terrible, they don't listen or care about you at all. I have a very bad back that needs surgery and they told me they don't want me seeing any other doctors besides them (I want to see a neuro surgeon for surgery) and they said they don't want me to go. Worst place to go to.

From the staff, to the physician assistants to the doctors - they are bad! I have been going for over a year and they treat me like bad at EVERY APPOINTMENT. I follow their rules, but they have no clue what meds I am taking and they don't update my medical chart when they MAKE you contact them. You are treated rudely and like you don't matter. They don't seem to have any interest in helping the patient, but you better follow ALL their rules or you are in trouble! Do not go to them!

This whole outfit is a bunch of cruel heartless people, wouldn't send a dog there. In almost 5 years have only saw Lodico for procedures, where he hardly if ever spoke to me; procedures are done without informed consent or explanation of risks and if you ask questions you are practically scolded. All office visits are 1-1 1/2 hours of waiting in an exam room for a cold PA to come in, count your pills, ask your pain level and walk out. That's it, never an offer to help you. just epidurals

Dr. Lodico (sr) and his son seem more interested in running their 6 locations than practicing medicine - as a patient you are assigned a PA some of them feel they are the doctor. I've personally had 8 appts. And never have yet met any doctor. The doctors and PA's are not up on the most recent approaches to pain management based on NIH, or various professional literature magazines (JAMA, NE Journal etc) if you are interest in ITP's (pain pumps) this doctor is not in your best interest

Review of Dr. Lodico

- in Delmont, PA |

Have read the negative reviews. Cannot say enough good things about Dr Mark Lodico. Staff has been very helpful and courteous. I have worked in the healthcare field for 40 years. Dr. L primarily does procedures. Hence, he is very, very good with doing injections. Main thing you want to look for in a physician. How many of whatever have they done? That's how they become experts. Have had several epidural injections. Excellent result. I question what the negative review pts were looking for.

You see him once then get pawned off on physician's assistants who don't listen and don't relay the information to the doctor. There isn't always a doctor there to sign prescriptions or orders for lab tests. Your appointment time is flexible. They called and confirmed my 10 appointment for 10:30. When I got there I was on the list for 11 without being told. Then I waited 1 1/2 hours after that to get 5 minutes with an assistant. It's always freezing. I don't recommend this place.
