Review for Dr. Mellon

Horrible bedside manner. She would get annoyed when I asked questions about my issues and what to do about them. She broke up with me via certified letter, leaving me with no PCP.

Review for Dr. Kendall

the good doctor did a reverse complete shoulder replacement. My rehab was slow, but it turned out very well. My rotator cuff was completely severed. Couldn't use my right arm. Now I can. I have limitations, but no pain. It is almost normal. He did a great job. The whole team is great.

Review for Dr. Filderman

I have been a patient of Dr Ashmore for a number of years. she is easy to talk with, not averse to saying she is puzzled and wants a second opinion. As an elderly male, she has never failed to do a prostate check during a physical. She is both an amazing physician, and an amazing person.

Left in the middle of my visit. Wouldn’t treat my tick bite although I have chronic Lyme and almost died from it. He’s arrogant and uninformed, yet previously gave me antibiotics for a sinus infection without any examination.

Review for Dr. Allen

Visited for consultation. I asked to see Dr Sigsby because I had met him the year prior, when my mother saw him. At that time, we both thought Dr Sigsby was the best. Glad I went back to see him when I had neuro problems.

Review for Dr. Rasmussen

Dr Endrizzi did my TSR Nov 2017, from the time of the 1st visit to the last appointment it was a totally positive/ professional experience which gave me my life back, those people out there that know what I mean, there is only one team that I would recommend, go with the best and get it done.

Excellent. I had an accident, breaking femur and hip. Dr. Skordino pieced me back together! Outcome has been no issues, other than of course having to strengthen and become mobile again. The practice is responsive to patients, communicates, and give it a 5-star rating.

Review for Dr. Connelly

I have been going to Dr. Kava for probably at least 15 years off and on for inner ear problems. He is good at putting tubes in ears but doesn't seem to be much good at diagnosing ear problems. He seems to form an opinion first and then stick with it. I really need to find a better ET doctor.

John Smith in Rockport, ME - Jun 16 2018

Review for Dr. Kava

Consistently unresponsive to troubling symptoms I was reporting and I later learned from new physician she was putting me in harm's way. It has taken months for me to get my health back on track.

Dr. Lavigne has acquired superior knowledge, outstanding procedures for diagnosis and treatment, and genuine caring for her patients. We are fortunate that she is practicing in our area of the country.

Annemarie V. Quin in Bar Harbor, Maine - Apr 16 2018

Review for Dr. Lavigne

Terrible experience. She did not do anything about my continued pain and increasing symptoms. Did not request any testing. Unconcerned and difficult to get an appointment. My symptoms went on for almost a year before an ER doctor diagnosed.

Dr. Beaule recently performed successful surgery on me. The pre-op and post-op appointments were very good. And she checked in on me during my hospital stay. She takes the time to explain things thoroughly and in layman's terms. She is easy to talk to and also has a good sense of humor.

Dr. Kava is an amazing physician. He utilized a variety of tone sounds to check out what was going on in my ear and double-checked the results with a printout from a machine that records the sounds, wow! He also fit me in his tight schedule to see me ASAP. The staff was very friendly.

I've been a patient of DrVan's (as most of us fondly call him) for over 13 yrs. I have found him to be unfailingly professional, empathetic, and due to his reputation, he is in high demand in this area. Those of us in this small town who see him on a regular basis consider ourselves fortunate!

Sent out an incomplete report, leaving out an incidental finding. Radiologists are obliged to mention findings that are incidental, and had I not seen the actual films, I would not have known about this finding. Very sloppy work.
