My urologist suggested an initial consultation with Dr. John Ma to review the pros and cons of radiation therapy. He spent a half hour with me and sent me a bill for $491.00 My insurance company allowed $73.65, which I think was about right.

I have been treated for asthma for 25 years. The cough had become unmanageable. Dr. Kossoy figured out what was going on and treated the problem correctly the first time I saw him. He is a genius.

I would rate Dr. Crabtree 10/10 both in surgical knowledge and personal attributes. Her people skills and caring level are excellent. I could not have asked for a better surgeon to oversee my extensive lumbar fusion.

Review for Dr. Kelli Crabtree, MD

Dr. Carlson is an exceptional physician. I would see him for everything if I could. He took the time to answer my questions. Not a doctor that will beat around the bush or just tell you what you want to hear... but he will fix you! Doesn't recommend surgery unless absolutely needed!

Dr Lepse repaired a full tear of my rotator cuff. It was about as easy and painless as one could expect. I am still going through the PT process. I expect a full recovery.

Dr. Shah is very professional and truly a great doctor . I was very blessed to find a caring and friendly doctor. 4 out of 6 of my family are his patients and he has preformed heart ablations on all of us , we are all doing good. Can't thank him enough for all hes done for me and my family .

Review for Dr. Matthew Glynn, MD

We took my mom to the ER. We didn’t see him for 4 hours. When he finally came in he was pompous and condescending. He wouldn’t even look at it speak to my mom and she was the patient. Mom felt worse when we left then when we got there. We will NOT take her back to Stormont Vail.

Review for Dr. Alap Shah, MD

He installed a loop monitor, and two years later did an ablation to correct a condition . Always a good communicator and listened to the patient . He made recommendations ,but, was not dogmatic. I am pretty picky about my doctors since i was for many years a Plaintiffs Medical Malpractice lawyer

Review for Dr. Alap Shah, MD

Terrible bedside manner. Rude. Insulting. No compassion. Hard to believe he’s in a profession that’s supposed to care about people. He was very belittling to my husband.

Review for Dr. Matthew Wills, MD

My parent went here, once, that's enough. Office dirty. Did cystoscopy without medication - in pain for two days. Told could have been done at hospital but that takes too long. It would have been much preferable.

Dr. Schroeder is a wonderful doctor. He address' all of my concerns and listens to everything I have to say. He takes whatever time is necessary to address my needs. I feel comfortable asking him anything. I would highly recommend him.

Review for Dr. Bradley Schroeder, MD

He misdiagnosed me and refused to accept that he was wrong. Nobody should get anxiety when going to see a specialist when they are supposed to help you.

Review for Dr. Edward Letourneau, MD

His bedside manner leaves much to the imagination. He seems to care more about getting you out of the office then actually answering your questions.

Awesome doc. I went to the ER and he was on call. He came and did a procedure and was fantastic. Can’t imagine he is the dr the other guy with the bad review was talking about. He was super nice and one of the local nurses had nothing but good things to say about him.
