I finally discovered what was wrong with my foot! But, it wasn't from Dr. Drbal. He didn't even ask to do X-rays. I had a rare disorder on my feet. So unless you're pain is common, I don't reccomend him at all!!! Very Uninformative!

My husband and I have been Dr. Wang's patients for 6 years. He is as good as it gets--patient, informed, watchful, responsive to individual quirks, and clear about when to refer to a specialist. He is unusually quick to answer online questions.

My first encounter with Dr.Greene occurred when I had an unexpected heart attack. He treated me on an emergency basis and literally saved my life. In the years since then we have had a continuing relationship based on his knowledge and ongoing care.

Made an appointment for a consultation, turns out that his office is in a hospital and I got billed for hospital charges. No ethics in the medical community. Find a different Dr.

Dr Doud has taken very good care of me, once insisting that I get an ultrasound because I wasn’t bouncing back from surgery the way he had expected. They found kidney cancer. I would be gone now otherwise, because I showed no outward signs. He is very conscientious.

Dr. Pienkny has been kind and caring during the 15 or so years I've been going to him for treatment and monitoring a benign prostate condition. If there's a fault, it would be he's either overly cautious (could be good) or led by procedures that have financial rewards (maybe a medical flaw).
