Review for Dr. Wellens

Saw him while in LRMC in March 2020. No contact with him since. I am upset that I have had 2 follow up appointments with his ARNP, both of which were rescheduled. I have had issues with medications that have not been addressed by staff! Perhaps it is time to use another clinic!

No thanks. He canceled on me to many times. Wait time to see him was over 30 mins. Refills was on time. Colonoscopies was rescheduled 3 times In months. He is younger than most drs. This may not be his fault. Just seems off.

Review for Dr. Seoane

Horrible experience. He falsely diagnosed a bunch of my old injures as new ones and then ran up the bill on me. Literally every diagnoses he gave me (2 broken bones) was 100% false. I fully recovered in about 3 days. Now this guys think I owe him a bunch of money... for what!?

Dr. Chan-Pong is a great doctor. He has been my lung doctor for over ten years. He, (a long with) some other great doctors have helped me beat lung cancer twice in ten years.

Review for Dr. Chan-Pong

Very rude. Tried pushing my mom out once and she had a blood clot in her leg. Today he tried pushing her out blaming COPD but clearly something other than that is wrong.

I could put up with the attitude. But, his certainty concerning his skills caused him to overlook the sepsis within 24 hours of “minor” surgery. My husband died.

Review for Dr. Thigpen

The best PCP you'll find - Dr Hardigan is absolutely compassionate and he listens, I'll say that again, he listens. His approach is personal - based on you, your needs, and how treatments, etc effect you as an individual. I love that, not cookie cutter approach, we are all different and he gets it.

Dr Tallo has been my Rheumatologist for two years. Because of him, my health took a complete turn around. He takes so much care to know his patients by name and can even tell you where I work! He always takes his time with me as a priority and listens. Even the nurses are amazing.
