Review for Dr. Jani

Funny guy. Terrible doctor. Said all my problems were “scar tissue”. Was supposed to cut a cyst out under foot but cut into a toe instead. Still have cyst and other problems he wouldn’t address because he said it was all “scar tissue. “

Robin S. Apr 20 2020

Review for Dr. Sisay

Yes he talks rough, but since his mother died painfully with cancer (prior to him being a MD) his only mission in life is to prevent further pain. If he is being a "butt head" tell him. He welcomes that conversation too. Don't be afraid of him … dislike the pain.

Don Gillies Apr 20 2020

He listened to all my concerns and made me feel very comfortable. I switched to him for my new doctor and I am very pleased!!!! He is a great doctor!!!!!!

Review for Dr. Schultz

I had hernia surgery performed by Dr. Throop in December of 2017. He did an excellent job. I made a quick recovery with no complications. He could have spent a bit more time explaining the procedure, however his explanation was adequate and he was very professional. He came highly recommended.

Brian Mar 21 2020

Review for Dr. Throop

After several years of psoriasis on my leg, Dr. Lippman suggested a prescription cream that, in a week, has stopped the growth of plaque. A great relief.

Vraney didn't take the time to address any of my concerns about the questions I had. Vraney was very rude an impatient when my wife asked a simple question he acted like it was a complete waste of his time. I will never recommend Dr. Vraney for any reason to anyone!!!! Huge waste of time for me.

Saw Dr Turner during hospital stay. He was professional, candid, helpful, and informative. If more providers gave this type of care there would be less repeat hospitalizations and more patient-care giver cooperation. I am grateful for his care and explanations.

Review for Dr. Burkett

One star is too many. This office has a god complex and the stories about rudeness are all consistent with my experience. If you can find another doctor do it. He has appointments available for a reason, and should be avoided at all costs.

Review for Dr. Weaver

Zero stars from me. Staff is rude and mental health is not taken seriously. Dr. Malek is nice, but his nurse practitioner is always the one seeing you. If you’re looking for a doctor for just yearly physicals, sure, but anything more than that I do not recommend.

My family dr referred me to dr vraney a couple of weeks ago and I didn’t hear from this dr office. so I called only to be told they don’t handle hemangioma tumor. And it’s growing in my L4 vertebrae but he is a spine specialist. It would have been nice to have a courtesy call.
