Review for Dr. Brodine

Dr Barbarena has cared for me for a couple years. He is always compassionate and listens to our questions and concerns. He makes sure that we are always informed about the procedure that will happen and the expected outcome and possible complications.

Review for Dr. Barberena

Dr. Klassen is phenomenal. I've been a patient of hers since 2004. She is extremely thorough, does not order unnecessary tests, she strives to keep costs low. She has been known to call me nights and weekends to follow up if I've had surgery or an ongoing medical issue. I strongly recommend her.

Unfortunately, Dr. Chen was anything but gentle during my vasectomy. The pain during the procedure was EXCRUCIATING, and at one point I passed out.

Extremely unprofessional. She didn't read half of my emails, but when I brought it up she sent several emails in a row asking me to give her another chance. Not someone I would trust with my mental health.

So compassionate. Answers all questions no matter how long it takes. Very knowledgeable and presents in a way easy to understand. If I could give him 10 stars I would.

He managed to leave unsightly scars both when he did a shave biopsy and when he did an excision. The healed excision has left what looks like a wrinkled nipple on my wrist. I won’t be back.

I'd make it a -5 if I could. I Dont think Dr Edward Letourneau knows what the Hippocratic oath is. Hes the rudest Dr I have ever had to deal with. No manners, no respect for his patient's.

I am only walking today thanks to Dr. Wills. I had severe spinal stenosis from C1-C7 which resulted in a laminectomy of my entire cervical spine, and a fusion from C1-T2. I am grateful every day for him and his staff and the work they did.

Review for Dr. Gateley

Dr. Gardner did not treat me for the issue I came in for. He “diagnosed” a separate issue that I already knew was there. He was very flippant and did not seem to care about what I was saying or listen to my history.

I didn’t get as far as a visit. Marla answering the phone, was rude & arrogant. Try getting a word in & she keeps talking. If this is any indication of the care & services, I say NO.

Review for Dr. Brian

Dr. Shah provided excellent care. He listened to me respectfully while reviewing my medical history and provided clear education about the heart’s electrical process and my particular issue. The procedure went well and the follow up has been appropriate.

Dr. Scheibe takes her time with me and thinks outside the box to solve problems. She is considerate of patient costs when possible, accepting recent lab work done elsewhere rather than ordering repeat tests, etc.

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. Crabtree

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!

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.
