Review of Dr. Owings

- in Edgewater, MD |

I've been seeing Dr. Owings for several years in her office in Edgewater, Maryland. She is affiliated with Johns Hopkins Medical Group. She is easy to talk with and takes time to listen to patients. Your appointment will not be rushed and if you need something during a weekend there is a nurse line you can call and get assistance. I've never had to wait more than 5-10 minutes in the office and the staff are wonderful. I highly recommend this practice if you need a caring competent physician

Review of Dr. Rast

- in Lancaster, PA |

Takes time to listen, asks pertinent questions, discusses concerns, gets back to you when you email with questions or concerns, is knowledgeable, makes you feel comfortable and that your health is important as well as the reason you came to your appointment.

Review of Dr. Paist III

- in Lancaster, PA |

My experience of Dr. Paist differs completely from the other reviewer. I went to him with substance abuse (alcoholism) issues, found his insights and feedback highly persuasive and helpful. At first he might be taken as a bit unsympathetic, but he is a serious, intelligent man who has clearly seen the ins and outs and hazes of self-deception related to substance abuse. Because of Dr. Paist I am clean and healthy nearly 18 months later. Highly recommend.

Review of Dr. Paist III

- in Lancaster, PA |

I saw this physician several times over the course of the last 7 months. He was persistently condescending and arrogant, and most times wouldn't stop talking long enough to let me speak. He never familiarized himself with my medical history and often made inappropriate comments that reflected a gross lack of understanding of my condition. On one occasion he yelled at me loudly enough that the entire office could hear. He has no regard for the education or experience of anyone but himself.
