I have been seeing Dr. Rosenbaum for 19 years. He is a highly skilled diagnostician. He diagnosed me with ovarian cancer in 2001 when other doctors just thought I had the flu. He has saved my life at least twice.

It was a phone video visit. It went good! Dr. Gabbert is great! He listens good & is very attentive. He answered all my questions. Make me feel like he cares!! Though it took almost 45 minutes to set up the Team. Video part. That was not easy to do.

Dr Sawhney has been my cardiologist for several years. On two occasions, I was hospitalized with pneumonia. The second time, I am pretty sure he saved my life. He is a youngish sort of old-fashinoned no-nonsense practitioner. I like him a lot. (My wife does too.)

Dr Qi is a great doctor. She listens, asks questions, explains her recommendations and works hard to make sure you are satisfied before you leave. I greatly appreciated her caring attitude and thorough diagnosis. I would recommend her without hesitation.

LACKS BEDSIDE MANNER!!! Lot's of caring doctors out there, he is not one of them! He abandoned my post surgery care when I questioned something on the surgical report. He is out to profit off of you.

Dr Maris has been my Dr for many years also my Mom's Dr Maris always gave us the very best care & spent as long as necessary whenever we needed it. He is so very qualified in so many areas of health including mental issues. My life will never be the same without him as my Doctor.

Review for Dr. Maris

Be careful with the billing. My daughter visited the Dr. Hatfield in 2018, I never got a bill or a phone call, and then I got a letter from a collection agency in March 2020. It took many call to get it addressed and now I don't even know if it was reported to a credit agency or not.

Mar 24 2020

Review for Dr. Hatfield

Poor communicator, won't call family back even when asked multiple times by patient, family, nursing staff. Does not know the patients he takes care of as a hospitalist. Avoid.

Dr. Karam is a godsend. He’s kind, compassionate and so competent. He makes you feel well taken care of even when you are dealing with a cancer diagnosis. His reassuring manner is so comforting at the hardest time. He is a one of a kind surgeon and we feel so lucky to have met him.

Mar 01 2020

Review for Dr. Karam

My husband and son have seen him at Urgent Care on 41st three times over the last two years. Not once did any of us feel he was caring, compassionate, or competent. He was condescending and dismissive of complaints. Not at all what I would want in a care provider.

No thanks from this RN Mar 01 2020

Awful doctor. It seems to me that there are a lot of critical reviews here on this doctor, they all see him as to stay away from. The positive reviews I think are false and submitted by HIMSELF or office staff, or maybe his mother

What an amazing doctor. He was professional, diligent and got me in and out of the urgent care quickly. Such a great example of the kind of docs we need in this world, not ones that scare patients away or blow off their symptoms. Dr. Dunn seemed to really care
