Review for Dr. Gregg Ferrero, MD

Dr. Echebiri is highly skilled and knowledgeable about women's health issues. I learned a lot about the changes that I have noticed in my body and was offered different methods of correction. I left Dr. Echebiri's office feeling empowered and optimistic! Thank you Dr. Echebiri!

Aug 21 2019

Review for Dr. Nirmaladevi Jayanthan, MD

Dr. Greesh is the worst Dr. I've ever seen. Extremely rude and doesn't listen to patients. Only wants to prescribe meds and send you on your way.

Aug 19 2019

Review for Dr. Greesh John, MD

Time in the waiting room was interminably long! Overbooking to this extreme is grossly unfair to patients.

Aug 15 2019

Review for Dr. Alesia Madden-Young, DPM

He’s a wonderful compassionate Dr treats you like a friend, not a patient. Has been my husband’s cardiologist for many years and a friend of mine. They both said he was great, I agree!!!! His staff is extremely kind and helpful. So glad for him ??

Aug 15 2019

Review for Dr. Terence Bertele, MD

Very thorough in her examinations. Gives patients good explanations of her findings and provides noninvasive and intermediate treatment options rather than jumping straight to surgery. Great disposition and personality.

Review for Dr. Kirsten Poehling-Monaghan, MD

I have been going to Dr. Benjers since 2008. The Dr. Nelson Benjers I know is not practicing in PA. He is located in Waldorf, MD and Prince Frederick, MD. He is a wonderful Doctor and I highly recommend him. I think the information on this sight needs to be corrected.

Review for Dr. Melissa Bailey, MD

This review is in response to the review that said "Stay away. This guy should not be practicing any kind of medicine!" Dr K is the best of the best. He saved my fathers life, and I swear by him. He is fast and very efficient. I've been going to Dr K for 5 years now, and have never had a problem.

Review for Dr. Karlene Ross, MD

I guess they are just giving medical degrees away these days. I would trust a 5 year old to give better care and medical advice than faux Dr. Lorenzo Childress. Unless you want to be given bad advice, ignored, and misdiagnosed I would run in the opposite direction! And I’m a healthcare provider.

MD - Feb 09 2019

Review for Dr. Lorenzo Childress III, MD

Dr. Wathen treated my entire family for ~25 years. He gives you a Plan A and Plan B, as he calls them. Plan A is less aggressive; if that doesn't work, then he moves to plan B. He always had time for us.

in Waldorf, MD - Feb 09 2019

Review for Dr. Vladimir Kakitelashvili, MD

Cardiologist wanted to send me home from the ER after I passed out while jogging but Dr. Campbell said no way. Good thing, I went into cardiac arrest later while in the hospital and was promptly shocked and brought back. I owe Dr. Campbell my life!

in Wilmington, DE - Nov 18 2018

Review for Dr. Kevin Campbell, MD

She takes all the time you need to answer questions. She makes sure you understand all your options before surgery. She makes you feel like you are her only patient and that your health is most important to her. She has a good staff.

Review for Dr. Abbas Omais, MD

I didn’t understand why others had left low ratings, but I found Dr. Chon to be honest and thorough. He just gives you the facts without the song and dance. I appreciated that. If you want a professional who gives it to you straight and looks out for your welfare, please give him a visit.??

in Waldorf, MD - Oct 12 2018

Sep 14 2018

Review for Dr. Abbas Omais, MD

Awesome experience. The best doctor I have seen in years. He listens and understands your concerns. He explains everything in a manner that the patient can understand. I would recommend to anyone. Well worth the trip from Southern Maryland.

in Mechanicsville, MD - Sep 09 2018

Review for Dr. Usman Zahir, MD

This was a complete waste of my wife and I time. We went there to confirm a pregnancy. And our wait time was over a hour. We have used Dr Cooke in the past but this experience was the worst ever. We felt like she had no respect for our time. We will never go back there again

The quality of care at Calvert Memorial has really declined. I had the joy of meeting this wonderful person today. I’m hesitant to even call him a Physician. No bedside manner , very little time spent evaluating, arrogance was overwhelming, zero people skills.

Review for Dr. Shaheer Yousaf, MD

This was my first time there. I was very PLEASED!!! Everyone was so nice from the receptionist to the Doctors assistant. Dr. Shumate made me feel comfortable and keep asking me if I was ok during my tooth procedure. I found a new Dentist!! Thank you!!

Review for Dr. Kenneth Shumate, DDS

I’ve been seeing Dr. Murphy for a year. He is always nice and professional and has a great bed side manner. He has treated my shrimp and given me test to rule out any other issues.

in Woodbridge, Va - May 25 2018

Review for Dr. Joseph Murphy, MD

He's very, very professional, yet sensitive to how he addresses me. I felt very confident that he was the best surgeon for me. His staff was also warm and professional. I'm not at all afraid of my surgery because of them, especially Dr. Zahir.

in Stafford - May 23 2018

Review for Dr. Usman Zahir, MD

Fractured my foot. Dr. Zahir came highly recommend. Wait time was minimal. He was very friendly, courteous, knowledgeable and made me feel at ease. His assistant, who casted my foot did a a great job. I was pleased with my experience.
