It is hard to get in to see him and sometimes you have to wait but it is worth the wait. I love him!

Review of Dr. Diefenbach

- in PA |

I saw Dr. Diefenbach for my neck and wasn't impressed. My 24 year old son saw him for his back and the whole time we were in there he kept running down the doctor who did my husband's surgery. He kept saying "I'm not going to do surgery, you're too young". Maybe he is a better surgeon than he was helpful to us.

Review of Dr. Thomas

-

I have been a patient of Dr. Thomas for almost 20 years. He is an excellently trained Doctor who really cares. He has never hurt me in all the years he has performed nerve blocks on me for herniated discs I injured in an auto accident. A truly outstanding Doctor who will help your pain situation no matter what it is. He has actually come in on Saturday & Sunday when I needed to see him!

Review of Dr. Thomas

-erie |

He hit nerves during the last injection; which caused paralysis. Emergency surgeries were critical to correct the paralysis and 2 contagious and med resistant staff infections. Staff kept giving me various excuses as to why they would not give me a copy of my medical records.
