Extremely knowledgeable in his field. Great listener. Very Personable and Friendly. Explained my options and made recommendations. Took charge of my care. After all this is my lung and I would like to breathe for some time to come.

Review of Dr. Bumbalo III


Thought Dr Bumbalo very patient and caring. I felt he understood my condition and put me at ease. i would recommend him, but his nurse is very brisk and didn't seem to be focused in me ad a patient at all. receptionists are the same.

Review of Karandeep Shergill


His nurse is very cold, rude and unsympathetic. Also very snippy toward patients. Dr Shergill is nice but explains nothing to you and I don't feel as though I am receiving any treatment for stage 4 kidney faiLure, calcium and vitamin D deficiency, high parathyroid. Just have test run but no treatment for any thing. I do not feel safe with dr handling if my Kidney failure at all

Review of Dr. Bumbalo III


Was the worst experience with a Dr office I have ever encountered. After seeing the Dr I had to go to the ER for the same reasons I had seen the Dr. Bumbalo. I contacted the Drs office when they opened and requested to speak with Dr Bumbalo’s nurse so I could one let Dr Bumbalo know was still encountering problems and two see how we needed to proceed. The receptionist took the message and said they would call. 5pm came and no call from the Drs office. I call at 8am the next day and they proceed

Review of Dr. Cohen


Showed no interest in my serious health condition. Did not offer or consider making any adjustment to meds. Literally, stated there was nothing he could do for me. Seemed just to get me out and schedule another future appointment. No follow up on referrals. Guess he just wanted to bill me again.. I wouldn’t recommend him for dog catcher.

The best doctor I have ever had the experience to meet! He saved my father's life when he was in ICU in McLeod hospital! He never gave up on him and went above and beyond to save him! Thank you so much Dr.Skarote without you my father would not still be here with u

Review of Dr. Cohen

- in Landisville, NJ |

Dr Cohen was my dr since 2010 when I became very ill. He was concerned, compassionate and pro active with my case. I saw him on the average of every 3 months since then and he was always supportive, even when I had the same fears over and over again. What a loss for me, and his other patients, that he moved. I wish him the best in his future endeavors. He is truly a 5 star Doc!

The only doctor I have ever been too that takes his time to explain everything and go over all tests and concerns. Truly someone I'm proud to have as my doctor

Review of Dr. Bumbalo III

-Myrtle Beach, SC |

Dr. Bumbalo is my Pulmonologist! My first visit with him was for a 2nd opinion re; my lung disease. That 1st visit did it for me. I'm thrilled I found a Doctor that takes time to explain my condition and what to expect. I was hospitalized recently for another illness and didn't think to put his name down at admissions. I saw him last week, he said please notify me the next time, I want to be in the loop and perhaps run a few tests. I give him 20 stars. Marilynn
