Review of Dr. Luginbuhl

- in PA |

Dr. L treated me for stage 4 throat cancer, and I give him my highest recommendations in all areas! He was caring, considerate, realistic, and took time to explain diagnosis and treatment options with myself and family. Dr. L nailed the diagnosis and treatment (confirmed by a second opinion at Penn). There was no sign of cancer after 7 months from diagnosis and treatment! The team approach at Jeff, with a nurse leading and coordinating between doctors worked very well. Simply the best!!

Review of Dr. Obrien

- in Hamburg, PA |

We are so glad that we found Dr. O'Brien! Our son has been suffering from debilitating Tinnitus for the past 3 months and we were becoming frustrated with the lack of concern and compassion from other ENT Physicians and their mid-level providers that we didn't know what to do. We found Dr. O'Brien to be genuinely concerned and interested in helping us, as parents, find some sort of solution to help our son. He's thorough, knowledgeable and an overall great person! Trust your care to him!

Review of Dr. Cottrill

-Philadelphia, PA |

Dr. Cottrill is a very thorough surgeon. She explained my condition and treatment options/plans so that I could understand. She was polite and spent lots of time with me answering questions and making me feel at ease about my condition. I would recommend her to both family and friends!
