Review of Dr. McInerney

- in Williamsport, PA |

I have had Dr. McInerney for two surgeries. He is very caring, and answers any questions you may have. He is very thorough in explaining all options and possible side effects. I would highly recommend him as a neurosurgeon.

Review of Dr. McInerney

-Harrisburg |

I was referred to Dr. McInerney from another neurosurgeon at Penn State. My experience was absolutely horrible and ridiculous! I called for a week straight trying to get a hold of him(or anybody) to get information about my follow up appointment. That never happened so, I even went into the office and had my primary physician send messages and call. This went on for 4 months! I or my primary physician never heard anything back from him. I'm done and would NEVER recommend him!!

Review of Dr. Rizk

-Chambersburg pa |

I was diagnosed with a brain tumor may 23 2017 on May 24 2017 he removed 95% of it on may 25 the 5% was completely gone. He explained everything very well so that my family and I could understand. I am greatly thankful for dr rizk considering the fact my tumor was the size of a softball it caused a shift and my 1 ventricle was shut I am very thankful for dr rizk I couldn’t ask for a better surgeon

He saved my sons life and future with his skilled surgical intervention @DHMC. Then he treated me and was compassionate and thorough. Dr. H. gave my son a life we thought he had lost.

Review of Dr. Rizk

- in Hanover |

Dr Rizk is an excellent Dr I have been trying to get Doctors to listen to me for years that I was having shunt issues and no one wanted no part of it. Thanks to Rizk for revising my VP shunt. I highly recommend him to everyone. :)

Review of Dr. Rizk

-Chambersburg, PA |

My 8 year old daughter was suddenly diagnosed with a brain tumor. Dr. Rizk met us at the Children's Hospital and was able to get 99.9% of the tumor out He was there EVERYDAY and made sure that we knew that he would also be placing the shunt that she ultimately needed. He was amazing and would recommend him to anyone!!

Review of Dr. Jho

- in New Oxford, PA |

Dr. Jho has a kind, compassionate attitude toward her patients. She is willing to take her time, do a thorough and complete review of your records and a complete exam. She is very knowledgeable and up to date on procedures. She is a life saver. I went to her after having 6 previous spinal surgeries that left me with residual pain, weakness, and deficits. I'm happy to say that after my 7th spinal surgery performed by her, I'm pain free. She is awesome.

We were very fortunate to have Dr. Rizk treat my husband when arriving in the ER at Penn State Med Center. He is a knowledgeable, compassionate and excellent neurosurgeon. We would recommend him highly. Michele and Mike Beres

Review of Dr. Reiter

-Carlisle, PA |

I had broken my back as a teenager and now 50 years later it was a problem again. Dr. Reiter did an evaluation and told me the options and I decided to do the surgical option. He explained it all very well, both in his office and the day of surgery. He followed up with my husband as soon as the surgery was done and with me later in recovery. The surgery was successful and I am walking for the first time in about a year

Review of Renee Orris

-Carlisle, PA |

I spoke with and saw Renee after my back surgery done by Dr. Reiter. She was a great listener and gave helpful advice and medication as needed. She took the time to be sure I understood all that was happening and would be done throughout my recovery.
