I have quite a few issues and he has always explained in detail what is going on, what he can or can't do for me. Very thorough. He listens and is very compassionate to my fears. His assistants are top notch. I never feel rushed or like something wasn't answered.

Review for Dr. John Froelich, MD

Dr. Froelich is an attentive listener. It's too soon to see if we're on the right track. Physical therapy is not what we expected. Awaiting their results is taking much too long, imho.

Dr. Clary is fantastic. The care I’ve received with him (and his team) has been top notch in all ways...compassionate, honest and up front, efficient and comprehensive...and all with a great sense of humor. Hard balance to achieve, but he nails it every time.

Review for Dr. Maria Albuja-Cruz, MD

Miracle worker! I was referred to Dr. Flynn following radiation and DaVinci procedure for recurring prostate cancer. Dr. Flynn gave me my life back with insertion of artifical urinary sphincter. Highly recommend this very skilled surgeon to anyone suffering with urinary incontinence.

May 14 2019

Review for Dr. Brian Flynn, MD

Dr. Allen does not listen to his patients, cannot articulate the course of treatment or the reason behind his decisions. If you want a big ego without the pedigree, skills or credentials to back it...Dr. Allen is the doctor for you.

May 02 2019

Review for Dr. John Froelich, MD

The doctor is the most unprofessional person. He did a consult for the insurance company and would not even return my phone call. He is a hack for the insurance company and all he wants to do is deny claims without evaluating the entire medical chart.

Review for Dr. Robert D'Ambrosia, MD

On my first visit, he knew everything about my history before the appointment started, had clearly done a thorough review of my records so we could focus on next steps for my care. Thrilled he is my new cardiologist.
