Great Doctor! Gave us all options available for our son's treatment and shared with us his approach if our son's injury happened to his child. Had great follow-up with us along the way. Highly recommend.

Dr Kopesky has done several of my surgeries. 3 Colonoscopys, gall bladder removal, and colon resection. He is all business, explains things very clearly with few words and is an excellent surgeon.

Review for Dr. Kevin Kopesky, MD

I have tried twice today to call the office and the line has been busy both times. Nothing says "go away" and "we don't want your business" like a busy phone line

Dr Chimenty took the time to have a long discussion with me regarding my broken wrist, treatment options, surgery, its outcomes, as well as a nonoperative option. He performed 2 planned surgeries on my wrist. He is an excellent surgeon and I highly recommend him.

I had a good experience with him. He listened to me, about my depression, and talked about a couple of ways for us to proceed. Just the opposite experience from the two above. I will use him again.

Review for Dr. Sundara Munagala, MD

I love this doctor. He is patient and listens to me. We talk about what the next steps should be, and I feel like he really understands me. I'd recommend him to anyone.

Review for Dr. Mark Valliere, MD

Very poor bedside manner. He does not seem to really care about his patients. I have never had an appointment last over 5 minutes with him he wants you out as fast as possible. He does not take time to explain anything or explore options. It's all "You need to exercise"

Review for Dr. Loren Mouw, MD

She is straight forward and tells it like it is. Some patients need that. If people tell her how to practice medicine and what they want her to do and order then they should get their own license,.

he may not have the best bed side manner. However he does know what he is doing. Ask questions and be apart of ur health experience. no one can read your mind so if you have a question or a concern, address it at the time you are there'

Dr. Keating was condescending to me and all of the nurses and staff. He seemed as if answering questions was an inconvenience. I would not recommend his care if you want a person to show care and compassion.

My family has been seeing Dr. Gray since he began practice in Cedar Rapids. We love Dr.Gray. He always spends whatever time is needed to answer questions and concerns. His office staff has always been helpful and professional. I believe his approach to medicine is prudent and thorough.

Dr. Whitters treated my wife while she was hospitalized. He gave her excellent treatment, had a great bedside manner and spent a lot of time adjusting her medications. I wish she could keep him as a psychiatrist, but he doesn't take out patients

He is an excellent Dr. My recovery was much faster than he thought it would be. He is very direct and to the point, but I view that as he is respectful of my time as well as his own. I highly recommend him.

One of the worst doctors I have ever had. Very rude to not only me but my entire family. If you're looking for a doctor to truly take their time and care about you, I suggest going else where.

Review for Dr. Scott Bemus, MD

I have had 2 prostate operations 10 years apart performed by Dr. Rippentrop and both went very smooth, his knowledge, manner and intrest in each and every patient is well above the norm for specialized medicine. I would not even think of another Urology Specialist for treatment.

I am saddened that Dr. Barry retired. He is a wonderful Doctor who was always conscientious of his patient's comfort. Aditionally, Dr. Barry was always on the cutting edge of Dermatological procedures. If Dr Barry ever comes out of retirement; I would be happy!
